L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA (Triway Hyperlecture Cage Match)
(Doors 5 p.m., DJ 6:30 p.m.)
Programmed by Machine Project
Join Machine Project for an experimental three-way lecture blowout with musical accompaniment. Jason Brown, Colin Dickey, and Jason Torchinsky will simultaneously deliver presentations covering some or all of the following topics: phrenological graverobbing, pre-1860 automobiles, the lizard people and their tunnels under Los Angeles, mechanical televisions, a paranoid history of San Francisco, ergotism, demonic possession, the scourge of masturbation and its relationship to capitalism, and Flaubert’s very complicated feelings about images (photographic and otherwise). These presentations will be accompanied by incidental musical performances, including j.frede and his wine-glass drone ensemble, and underwater recordings of the San Francisco Bay.
Galleries open until 9 p.m.
