Published DateLACONIA — Karaoke, DJs and cover bands are often the default entertainment in the Lakes Region on Friday night. This Friday, May 24, from 6 to 10 p.m. people can experience something different at The Studio, 50 Canal Street in Laconia, as several performance and experimental sound artists bring a unique evening to the city.
Reed Altemus from Portland, Maine and Josh Ronsen from Austin, Texas are performing as Unpopular Scientists, while Birdorgan, an established experimental group from Manchester, will have three of their members performing, Dei Xhrist, Marc Bisson and Walter Wright. Melissa McCarthy, owner of The Studio, has done Fluxus-based performance art in both Chicago and New York City with Altemus and Ronsen, and she and Altemus were invited artists to the 2011 Kaunas, Lithuania Biennial. "It's easier to experience the evening than to explain it," says McCarthy. "It will be unpredictable, silly, and completely unlike anything you might expect in Laconia on a Friday night."
The event is open to the public. The Studio, located at 50 Canal Street, will be open Friday from 10 a.m. until the evening ends. For more information, call 603-455-8008.
