Mysterious London trio The Bays neither rehearses nor records—“performance is the product.” Their exhilarating improvised live score to Tom Twyker’s 1998 cult film Run Lola Run, in which Lola has 10 minutes to come up with 100,000 marks to save her hapless boyfriend from gangsters, careens between hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, and ambient grooves. It has only been performed a handful of times since it debuted at the Brighton Festival in 2007; this is the US premiere. Joan Wasser’s sultry experimental pop project with fellow Brooklynite Benjamin Lazar Davis is loosely inspired by Pygmy musical patterns and sounds like a collection of Prince B-sides: “addictive looped guitar, complex rhythms and striking vocals.” (The Line of Best Fit)
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
