Roughly one month in advance of the Contemporary Arts Center
opening Myopia, its highly
anticipated retrospective of Mark Mothersbaugh’s artwork, he will come to
Woodward Theater for a special concert.
The Aug. 28 performance will be what the CAC is calling a
“three-headed evening.” It will start with a small orchestral group playing
DEVO covers and Wes Anderson scores — Mothersbaugh co-founded the
ground-breaking New Wave/Post-punk band and then moved into film-score
composition, working often with Anderson. He also has long been active as a
visual artist, having studied art at Kent State University.
Next, there will be a short “onstage dialogue” with
Mothersbaugh. Then he will conduct an ensemble in “Music for Six Sided
Keyboard.” He did a similar
performance in Denver in connection to
Myopia’s opening there.
will be $60 seated and $30 standing, and more information should be available
next week on the Contemporary Art Center’s website, www.contemportaryartcenter.org. Myopia opens
at the CAC on Sept. 25 and runs through Jan. 9. The exhibit is curated by Adam
Lerner of Denver’s Museum of Contemporary Art.UPDATE: A pricing change has been added.

DEVO is target-marketing a new species: cats. To celebrate the release of their first album in 20 years, 'Something for Everybody,' the band hosted a nine-hour listening party only attended (in the flesh, er, fur) by 20 felines.
