L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA (Skank Bloc Bologna Number Four: The Beast in Space)
Skank Bloc Bologna Number Four in the house! The Beast in Space—a 1980s Euro-sleaze space saga, recently unearthed in the basement of a condemned Bologna porn cinema—is packed with intergalactic discos, cardboard aliens, and ridiculous special effects. Local artist Allan deSouza offers up clips and wry observations from Beast . . . in a mash-up–style lecture. The presentation of the voice issue of Fools in Print—a Scottish artist-run press edited by Lucy Keany—includes Rabbit Hole/Acid House by singer and composer Joan La Barbara; a dub reggae, Lancastrian post-punk narration by Paul Rooney; and Ask for It from Jordan Baseman, recorded in a football club in Sheffield, U.K.
Preceded at 6 p.m. by one of our favorite KALX DJs spinning in the lobby, where wine and beer are available for purchase.
