Name That Tune
02.11.19 / 7pm
In the spirit of the game show that delighted millions of home viewers in the 1950s and 1970s, these live artist interviews are a way to get to know the participants through their interest in music. Name That Tune will challenge the ears and knowledge of select L.A. based artists whose work has an undeniable relationship to noise, sound, and/or popular music. Professor and music critic Josh Kun and curator Hamza Walker will test four artists over four evenings with sounds meant to thrill, confound, provoke, and above all entertain.
Our third contestant, Jim Shaw is a founder of the legendary experimental art rock band Destroy All Monsters. Whether he’s creating aural rites for his O-ist religion or perpetually completing a prog-rock opera, Shaw’s entanglement with music and art taps into the American unconscious with devilish aplomb. For this episode, we'll mine the rare and radioactive elements of Shaw's record collection.
This event is free and first come first served.
