Wave Sessions #1: Topsy-Turvy (feat. brothel.)
Good ladies, evening and gents.
[…] (Ellipsis Collective) brings to you a Topsy-Turvy night of underground and unexpected performance, music, and art. Dance with a trickster, play the fool, be a heyoka or a hatter. Clowns will rule and kings will clown. We’ll do our worst; you bring your best. We’ll bring the brothel. to you.
If you loved the multi-genre/art and music experiences of the Hive Secret Sessions and Heart-On, you will love what […] has in store for you at every one of our events.
Our headliner brothel.: The enigmatic brothel is a groundbreaking wave artist out of Colorado with a huge, worldwide Soundcloud following for his trippy, emotional, and collaborative music. Take a listen: https://soundcloud.com/brothelmusic/flume-say-it-feat-tove-lo-brothelremix
Wave Session #1: Wave music is primarily a European genre born on the internet. Its pioneering artists are highly collaborative, creating emotional, forward-thinking music that hits hard. Imagine the spacey 808 beat swag of trap, the subby rumbles and halftime pace of dubstep, the dense emotion of sad boy rap, the icy melancholy of witch house, the sci-fi savoir faire of instrumental grime, the loose formula-free experimentalism of the LA beat scene and the synthetic aesthetic of vapor wave… If any of those genres have touched you, wave will, too. Ellipsis Collective will be bringing these artists to SLC.
Costume theme… “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” -Lewis Carrol
We’ll do our best to surprise you, perhaps you’ll surprise us and dress the fool, the jester, the contrarian. Backwards-forwards, upside-down, inside-out, whatever nonsense you desire!
This an invite-only 21+ event. You must be on the invite list and have ID to attend. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
