Arto Lindsay (b. 1953) has stood at the intersection of music and art for more than four decades. As a member of DNA, he contributed to the foundation of No Wave. As bandleader for the Ambitious Lovers he developed an intensely subversive pop music,a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles.. Throughout his career, Lindsay has collaborated with both visual and musical artists, including Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, Caetano Veloso and Rirkrit Tiravanija. Having been involved with carnaval in Brazil for many years in 2004 he began making parades.
Lindsay will be joined by Beauty Pill, A DC-based band that is also familiar with the worlds of both art and music. Critically-acclaimed and unafraid to push boundaries, Beauty Pill is a shape-shifting musical project directed by Chad Clark. Having assembled and disassembled several line-ups over the years that include both one-off collaborators and regular core contributors, the two most consistent elements in Beauty Pill's music are Chad's creative vision and change. Don't miss this chance to see so many great musicians on one stage.
