When CounterPULSE, the alternative arts space known for its "commitment to uncategorizable, cutting-edge performance," throws a music benefit, it's much more than your average rock show. This July the popular Rock 4 Art returns for a third year, uniting over 50 performance mavericks to benefit their favorite arts organization. In this truly eclectic evening, Brazilian samba musicians Sambagode share the stage with trans rock sex symbol Shawna Virago, an orchestra of (literally) 50 guitars, and popular bands like Dyspecific, the Judea Eden Band, and Audrey Howard and the Misters (of the late and famous gender-bending band, Wood).
Hot on the heels of its sold-out world premiere, Exit Sign: A Rock Opera returns to the stage, while Jessica Fudim's Dance Animals offer a sneak preview of their new rock theater extravaganza. Critically acclaimed performance artist Sara Kraft makes a rare musical appearance, returning to her roots as an "avant garde chanteuse". Simone de la Getto of Harlem Shake Burlesque provides a titillating interlude, while Amelia Mae Paradise and Sarah Paradise of the Diamond Daggers host an unrepeatable evening that collides rock-n-roll, haunting melodies, performance art, and rock theater.
