opening night press release:
The Lesbians on Ectasy 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 in a marching band style to the stage.
Virginia Puff Paint (Jeremy Laing and Will Munro), porn superstar of the glittery craft underworld, tickles multiple lacy orifices with detacheable foam-stuffed fringed spandex cocks in a heavily embelished and much anticipated debut release. Catch this insatiable vision of hand-stitched poly-sexuality, dripping sequined entrails from padded stomach cavities, begging to be plowed by a rhinestoned stiletto. Peer through the glory hole.
Cass Bird is a phototographer from LA who takes sensitive and striking portraits of the queer community. Cass Bird will set up a functional photo studio in the gallery to take portraits during the Release.
