Tonight at TBA: Kim Gordon, Sad Canadians, and More

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, Sep 19, 2013 at 3:38 PM


Tonight at the Works, former Sonic Youth bassist Kim Gordon takes the stage with her new project Body/Head, a collaboration with Bill Nace; their debut album Comic Apart came out last week on Matador. She's performing at the Con-Way warehouse tonight—can't say it enough, check out this venue before it turns into a New Seasons—followed by Portland artist DUBAIS' Die Unterwelt, a "pop opera" melding "performance, video, music, and sound." All the fun starts at Con-Way, 2170 NW Raleigh, at 10:30; tickets are $10. More info here.

Also tonight, the first night of Chop Theatre's How to Disappear Completely, a one man multi-media show by acclaimed Canadian lighting designer Itai Erdal, about his mother's death from lung cancer. That's tonight through Saturday at Imago; details here.

After reading Marjorie's review, I'm really regretting I didn't make time to see Miguel Gutierrez's show, which runs again tomorrow and Saturday; it sounds great.

And tonight at midnight is your last chance to see Third Angle's excellent In the Dark, a contemporary chamber piece performed by a string quartet in the pitch-black planetarium at OMSI. (I do hope they bring this show back, I'd like to see it again.)

I've got a pair of passes to the Works—TBA's late-night programming at Con-Way—email me by noon tomorrow, with "TBA passes" in the subject, if you want to win. Only catch is that you have to be able to stop by the Mercury office downtown tomorrow to grab 'em.
