Yes, this is our new website! Aug 23, 2010

by Tania Kupczak

Though our stage is dark, we've been busy these summer months with all sorts of renovations and deep cleanings. Among them, a foxy new look and, more importantly, highly improved functionality for our website! We're still working out the kinks and new features (like a really great CALENDAR) will be added in the coming days. For now, though, a big shout out to Chris and Brian at Heavy Robot for working with me and making this happen in record time and with a maximum of humor!

OtB staffer releases an album Aug 17, 2010

by Tania Kupczak

OtB’s Erin Jorgensen has released an album! Listen to samples from Cet air-la or buy it (only $5!) on her bandcamp site. Here’s what Stranger writer Brendan Kiley has to say about Erin and her marimba:

"Because of an unfortunate linguistic accident, the sirens of the Odyssey (those bird-women who sing so beautifully, men will jump to their deaths to be close to them) and the sirens of the city (ambulance, air-raid) are a pair of homonyms. Because of this accident, people everywhere subconsciously think of the singing sirens as loud and brazen, busty lounge singers wrapped in red velvet. One dose of Erin Jorgensen’s quiet, mellifluous voice—accompanied by her marimba, perhaps singing “My Lady Heroin” in French—will cure you of this notion. She’s a tiny woman who plays an enormous instrument so sweetly, you’ll want to dash yourself against the rocks...

Kalup Linzy at Seattle Art Museum Aug 13, 2010

by Tania Kupczak

Here at OtB, we’ve been tracking Kalup Linzy’s ascent from his self-produced YouTube videos to his recent appearances on General Hospital with James Franco. Linzy appeared at last year’s TBA festival and is now headed to Seattle on Aug 19 for a one-night-only performance at Seattle Art Museum. Here’s what they say he’ll be up to:

"Part Richard Pryor, part RuPaul, Kalup Linzy uses performance, music and videos of live action and animation to create unique experiences that are tender and vulgar, hilarious and heartfelt. Linzy has been named a key figure in a new generation of “queer video artists.” In this evening performance, the artist performs and interacts with his series of daytime soap opera–inspired videos Conversations Wit de Churen."
