QUIET LIGHTNING: just add bass

[ Mon Mar 5 12 ]

Chris Cole + Evan Karp curated Quiet Lightning 27, held at the Elbo Room. Jesus commissioned a new gospel to embrace homosexuality, which gave way to a field guide to the emotions, a drunken love confession, a demented dream and warning. We celebrated all the places we were not killed. We suspected (no, we knew) we were gay; we were always told: “out”, but only when we wanted to stay in. Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus proved that you don’t have to be smart to be funny (but drugs help), and we took a hard, sober look at what might never be occupied until we “copulate with the diplomats”. Then we stepped off.
