Lookin' at the Books' performance preview

Be sure to head over to Bostonist tomorrow for a review of Split/Signal at the Center for Arts at the Armory in Somerville. The show paired eight musical acts – including The Books, Cul De Sac, Roger Miller (from Mission of Burma), Caspian, Arms & Sleepers – with eight filmmaking teams to produce an entire evening of filmed scenes-meet-live musical performances. You’ll have to read my review when it’s out to see what I think, but I did (and certainly continue to) enjoy the idea of approaching audiences with entirely different methods of art in unusual formats with a range of musical acts… Not unlike, say, much of the thoughts behind emo artists, right down to the very idea of pairing the harshness attributed to hardcore with the idea of introverted and ambiguous lyrics about hard-to-comprehend concepts in life…

…ok, I’ll stop… for now…
