April 8, 2011; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
(Doors 5 p.m., DJ 6:30 p.m.)
Programmed by Betty Nguyen
Inspired by the words of the composer, multi-instrumentalist, and improviser Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith, “Our music is based on systems and systems are not free,” L@TE Programmer Betty Nguyen has devised Pigeon Dealers, an evening of improvisations with Los Angeles–based artist Dave Muller as DJ, comedic sketches, and music performances by artists whose works riff off their relationships to the Sound System culture. Featuring the band Bronze, films by David Enos, and Chris Thayer doing standup, the evening will be a treasure hunt for knowledge through the medium of entertainment. Presented in conjunction with Nguyen’s Living ARTS Fund, which seeks out contemporary provocateurs who thrive on sound and culture.
