THIS CONCERT TAKES PLACE AT THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO'S FULLERTON HALL!


Arto Lindsay has stood at the intersection of music and art for more than four decades. As a member of the 1970s New York band DNA, he contributed to the foundation of No Wave. As bandleader for the Ambitious Lovers he developed an intensely subversive pop music, a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles. Throughout his career, Lindsay has collaborated with both visual and musical artists, including Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, Caetano Veloso and Rirkrit Tiravanija. After having been involved with Carnival in Brazil for many years in 2004 he began making his own parades as large-scale interactive art happenings.

For this intimate performance in the Art Institute’s Fullerton Hall, Lindsay performs music from his recent album Cuidado Madame. His first full-length album of new material since 2004, Cuidado Madame originated with recordings of atabaques (Afro-Brazilian hand drums) in Brazil, and combines Lindsay's signature abstract guitar sound with Tropicalia inspired balladry.

The concert features Lindsay in performance with Melvin Gibbs (Rollins Band), Paul Wilson (KOOL & KAAS), Kassa Overall, Patrick Higgins (Zs) and Ryu Takahashi and opens with a performance by Beauty Pill, the DC-based band led by producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Chad Clark.

Co-presented with The Art Institute of Chicago and Evening Associates.
Beauty Pill
Beauty Pill, a DC-based semi-electronic band lead by producer, singer, songwriter, and guitarist Chad Clark, open the concert. The bad includes Basla Andolsun, Jean Cool, Drew Doucette and Devin Ocampo. The densely constructed and deeply felt music of their latest LP, Beauty Pill Describes Things As They Are, were recorded as part of an art installation titled Immersive Ideal. For this project, viewers were invited to watch the band through a pane of glass as they went about recording the album in a specially constructed studio. An exercise in radical transparency, the band learned, arranged and recorded one song per day with no practice beforehand.
