An evening with music and performances by Lesbians on Ecstasy, Libber, Cass Bird, DJs Ingie Pop and the Chairman, and Virginia Puff Paint in Art in General’s street-level Project Space.
Cass Bird is a photographer from LA who takes sensitive and striking portraits of the queer community. The artist will set up a functional photo studio in the gallery to take portraits during the Release. The Lesbians on Ecstasy are a live dance outfit from Montreal, Quebec. They steal liberally from the lesbian back catalogue, referencing artists like K. D. Lang and the Indigo Girls, to create booty shaking dance hits that maintain the politically infused edge of many early sapphic songwriters. Libber is a new performance project by Wynne Greenwood of Tracy and the Plastics. Libber brings percussion-based songs and video to the stage in marching band style. In a heavily embellished and much anticipated debut release, Virginia Puff Paint (Jeremy Laing and Will Munro), porn superstar of the glittery craft underworld, tickles multiple lacy orifices with detachable, foam-stuffed, fringed spandex cocks. Catch this insatiable vision of hand-stitched poly-sexuality, dripping sequined entrails from padded stomach cavities and begging to be plowed by a rhinestone stiletto. Peer through the glory hole.
