Avant-garde Austin musician Roger Sellers’ website begs you to “Imagine folk-dance-Americana-electric-symphonic fusion, where Philip Glass, Sufjan Stevens and Joanna Newsom all groove to late night ambient house music in George Martin’s living room.” This is the best description I have found of the man’s unique sound(s). Sellers creates captivating and diverse sonic landscapes that translate to a riveting, unpredictable and transfixing live show. The dude plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, bells, organ, piano and drums. Sometimes he plays with a full band and sometimes he plays with a streamlined digital solo setup. And, though he may not fit all of those things into his SA performance, the sheer possibilities indicate that Sellers’ set is sure to be an engrossing experience. Along with visual stimulation provided by Sixto-Juan Zavala, show-goers will be treated to up-and-coming local acts PBLC (particularly awesome), Brave Microwave and Lizarazo.
TrainWrecked, pop-punk band, will play originals and covers. Spend your tax refund on a good time.
Brazilian director Renato Falcão’s modern silent film Margarette’s Feast tells the incredible story of an Everyman (Hique Gomez) who loses his job and comes into possession of a miraculous suitcase that never runs out of money. Shot entirely in black and white, the 2002 film employs Brazilian music, intentionally under-lit photography, exuberant acting styles and a cast of characters spanning the social spectrum. Falcão’s debut feature, Margarette’s Feast has been described as an “homage to a glorious cinematic past and an audacious present exploration of narrative and technique. … It’s as though Chaplin’s Little Tramp found himself in Fassbinder’s Alexanderplatz.” SAMA screens the cinematic oddity in conjunction with its Global Lens film series.

A former stable the late artist and philanthropist Linda Pace repurposed as her studio, 111 Camp Street housed the Linda Pace Foundation offices until recently and opens this week as SPACE, the Foundation’s first public facility. Tucked in the northeast corner of CHRISpark, SPACE will showcase works from the Foundation’s stellar permanent collection along with related contemporary art exhibitions and programming. Curated by LPF’s former Executive Director Maura Reilly and organized by Collection and Exhibitions Officer Kelly O’Connor, SPACE’s inaugural show “Pace Gems” reflects Pace’s “overarching collection criteria,” which focused on artists linked to Artpace, the “laboratory of dreams” she founded in 1995. While it highlights a number of New Yorkers (including Jim Hodges, Glenn Ligon, Marilyn Minter and Wangechi Mutu), “Pace Gems” also represents SA natives like Franco Mondini-Ruiz, Dario Robleto and even Pace herself.

Headed by professor Mark McCoin, the UTSA New Media Collective comprises undergrad and grad students exploring the “integration of live digital sound, video performance, movement, sculpture and any combination of space-time creativity.” In February, the collective made a splash with “Slap and Tickle,” a one-night-only pop-up featuring multimedia installations, “duration-based” works and experimental performances (including one by an “interpretive contortionist”). Sure to live up to its unusual name, the gang’s April offering draws inspiration from personal stories, experimental rituals and “binary juxtapositions.” Billed as an “evening-length art experience,” the limited engagement promises installation-based projects, a costumed “painting battle” between three artists and a “host of innovative content” including the sound- and movement-based performance piece Beauties and the Beasts.
