Bev S. 9.6.09
Last weekend I had the privilege of performing at this year's Queering Sound, both as Arthur Loves Plastic and as The Window Shoppers. Below is video from TWS's performance, featuring the disembodied vocals of Mary Fox. Although the event is all about queer visibility, she decided to be a contrarian and perform from the closet by the drum set. Afterwards I projected a stream-of- consciousness video mashup of mid-century PSAs and lesbian porn on the wall during a couple of DJ sets though predictably I had trouble operating the DVD remote. Some amazing spoken word rounded out the evening. And the best part is, all of this took place less than a mile from my apartment in Silver Spring.
