Things to do in Baltimore this week 8/29

Hello friends!  I don’t know about you but I am over the hot weather.  Lots of indoor activities available this week.  Baltimore’s vibrant music scene kind of blows me away when I compile this every week.  You can basically see a show of any genre every night of the week.  Impressive and also, it gives you zero excuse to not be out there.

Similar to a short film or the increasingly popular digital shorts, SHORTS creates a concert of dance “hors d’oeuvres” that are eclectic, entertaining, and sometimes experimental in nature accompanied by a variety of musical sources.

Opening Reception for Thalia Scagliola’s 3:33:33
7PM – 11PM
The Alchemy of Art
1637 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Please help welcome Thalia Scagliola and her series 3:33:33. Her work is centered on examining obsessive tendencies. She makes performance videos depicting herself in a broad range of conditions. The inherent need to record and observe takes precedence over the content. To relate the estrangement she experiences to the viewer, the footage is broken into hundreds of clips, reordered, and then layered. The 33 layers of footage emphasize these obsessive examinations. The footage is paused at 3 minutes, 33 seconds, and 33 frames, providing the viewer with a moment of pause. The number 3 as well as its multiples, references the infancy of these tendencies, which is rooted in her childhood. Driven by her habitual nature, physical processes such as screen-printing are introduced, providing further departure through increased objectivity. The original imagery is broken down through successive layers. Every layer is different from another and never repeated. Use of color reflects the departure occurring from the original footage. Influenced by cybernetic art, performance art, chance operations, and systems art, Thalia’s work focuses on obsessive tendencies, and the altered perceptions developed through compulsion.

Herd of Main Street – Ragged, true songs coming from a life time of listening to records and staying up late playing guitars… and harmonica! Lots of harmonica… like smart harmonica… not John Popper harmonica… harmonica you can deal with. Harmonica.
