Pick of the Day: Clark and I Somewhere Else In Connecticutt

This is the second installment in Curtain Razor’s Moveable Feast performance series. Unlike the first one, the wildly successful Haircuts By Children that ran at the Room in early March, no one who attends will be getting their ears lowered or otherwise having their appearance altered. What they will do is be treated to a provocative piece of theatre by Vancouver-based Rumble Productions & Theatre Replacement.

Clark and I Somewhere in Connecticutt is inspired by an act of salvage by James Long in 2005, when he discovered seven photo albums and travel journals in an alley near his east Vancouver home. Along with several friends and colleagues, he subsequently embarked on a quest to discover the origins of the material, which essentially documented a family’s history between 1950-87.

The work is being presented at the MacKenzie Art Gallery tonight and Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Tix are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $12 for students. For more info call 522-0080.

Also on tonight is a gig by local indie-folk rockers the Lonesome Weekends at O’Hanlon’s Pub. Backing them up is the dark and moody local solo act the Lambtadas. As well, Intergalactic Virgin is playing at the OUTside Club at 2070 Broad.
