Sound Series: Arto Lindsay & Beauty Pill
Wednesday, October 18 at 8:00 pm
The Warhol welcomes Arto Lindsay, who has long stood at the intersection of music and art. As a member of DNA, he played a significant role in the foundation of the no wave genre in late 1970s in New York City, along with artists like Suicide and Glenn Branca. As leader of the Ambitious Lovers, he pioneered a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles. The band Beauty Pill from Washington, D.C., is led by singer/guitarist/producer Chad Clark. The group’s acclaimed last release Beauty Pill Describes Things as They Are highlights its lush arrangements and earned it a spot on NPR’s 50 best records of 2015.
