Made in 1971 by Philip Trevelyan, this British cult film explores the eccentric lives of the Page family who live without utilities or running water in the woods of East Sussex. Shot on 16mm in natural light, the film lets the Pages express their concerns and world view without voice-over narration.

65 min. with a short film to start.

Tashi Dorji + Tyler Damon † Jimmy Joe Roche + Layne Garrett

WHEN: Tuesday 4/11 : Doors at 8:30 Show at 9 PM
ADMISSION: $5-10 sliding scale

A night of DUO DUO’S !

Electric guitarist Tashi Dorji and percussionist Tyler Damon will perform as a duo. In the long tradition of string/drum duets — from Bailey & Bennink to Haino & Yoshida — these two cleave out their own unmapped continent of sound. They connect lashes of ecstatic intensity and outer reaches of texture and timbre. At times Dorji’s brutal electric torrents meld into Damon’s metal and tonal abstractions.

Local electronics lurking weirdhead Jimmy Joe Roche and expanded guitar luminary Layne Garrett will improvise as a duo.

Jimmy Joe Roche is an interdisciplinary artist whose work encompasses video, sculpture, and performance. Video screenings include the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, and Museum of the Moving Image.

Layne Garrett is an improvising musician and instrument builder based in Takoma Park, MD. He works with prepared guitars, found objects, and self-built instruments.
