Walt Disney Concert Hall show in LA: Oingo Boingo’s Steve Bartek & Ego Plum November 9th, 8:30 pm
Sorry to be a bit late with this, but I have a good excuse as the Hurricane Sandy has complicated my life recently! For everyone in and around L.A. some exciting news: REDCAT
, CalArts’ downtown center for contemporary arts is presenting, in cooperation with JEFF E. WINNER of The Raymond Scott Archives,
a special evening celebrating Raymond Scott. Machine-Man: The Musical Mayhem of Raymond Scott
will be held at the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater on Friday, November 9
at 8:30 pm. (Jeff is also co-producer
of the film and also a major character in it and out of it!) ,
In this unprecedented celebration of Scott’s polymorphic career, former OINGO BOINGO Short Term Loans UK co-founder and guitarist STEVE BARTEK and his band (including other Oingo Boingo alums) find new takes on the composer’s early cartoon classics, while composer EGO PLUM’s ensemble re-envisions Scott’s farsighted electronica. Joining in is the Rogue Artists Ensemble who will stage a first-ever live interpretation of a vintage Scott film collaboration with MUPPETS creator JIM HENSON.
AND though I can’t be there there will be a merchandise table and the DVD of the film will be for sale there. Hope you can make it!
