(Buster Keaton, 1920)
The Avant Garage 2003
Sat, Oct 11, 2003 7 PM
Organized by Tim Lanza, this perennially popular event pairs regional musicians with vintage silent films for an eclectic evening of live music and offbeat movies. Nationally acclaimed act Evolution Control Committee will bring its distinctive brand of sound collage and social commentary to Vsevolod Pudovkin's Chess Fever (1925, 28 mins.) Cleveland's Volta Sound bring their psychedelic space rock stylings to Buster Keaton's surreal short The Playhouse (1921, 20 mins.). Northern Ohio quartet Uva Ursi accompanies Out of the Inkwell (c.1921, 8 mins.), a Fleisher brothers' cartoon featuring Ko Ko the Clown. Other acts include Columbus instrumental quartet Silencio accompanying Buster Keaton's hilarious One Week (1920, 20 mins.) and Cleveland's Homeless Gardens accompanying Mack Sennett's slapstick gem The Lion and the Souse (1924, 10 mins.).

The Avant Garage is presented in the Wexner Center's black box Performance Space "cabaret style" with beverages available from a cash bar. The program lasts approximately 2 hours.
