A hard partying pop metal purveyor, a multimedia narrative about grief and bowling, and a solo performer’s exploration of the ‘happiness industry,’ have whetted the hounds’ art appetites this week.
St. Paul photographer Julie Caruso admires artist Anna Eveslage’s ability to weave a poignant, personal tale about grief, healing, and bowling, through pictures and audio. Julie says Eveslage’s installation “FRANK: A Photographic Story of Love, Death, and Bowling” is the story of a man who copes with the death of his wife by immersing himself in their favorite hobby, bowling. It’s on view at the Trylon Microcinema on Thurs. March 22 every half hour from 6:30 to 10:30pm.
How much is your contentment dependent on the happiness industry? Comedic musician and storyteller Courtney McLean says powerhouse solo performer Seth Lepore will help you clarify. Courtney says Lepore’s new show, “SuperHappyMelancholyexpialidocious” skewers mega-churches, self-help books and the positive thinking movement with a zeal that will bring you happiness. On stage at the Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis on March 22, 24 and 25 at 7pm.
Freelance music writer Jon Garrett says if you look close enough, deep below the surface of pop metalist Andrew W.K.’s wild, hedonistic exterior, and between the lines of his party-till-you-puke lyrics, you’ll find a theme that unites all his songs…the need to PARTY! HARD! Andrew W.K. will be holding court in First Avenue’s Mainroom on Thursday and you’re invited to get your PARTY on. Jon says Andrew W.K. will be playing his seminal first album, “I Get Wet,” in its entirety.
