Tim Fite with BJ Snowden and id m theft able/Andrea Pensado duo
Called a cultural gadfly by the New York Times and ferally original by the New Yorker, Tim Fite spends the bulk of his time cranking out genre-bending pieces of art and music. In addition to
recent gallery exhibitions at Gallery Tom Blaess and The Beam Center of Brooklyn, Fite has toured internationally with wildly diverse artists such as Bonaparte, Phiharmonie Zuidnederland, Man Man, My Brightest Diamond, Les Claypool, Ben Kweller, Azure Ray, and others. He has released three full-length albums on Anti Records, as well as plethora of self-releases. His multimedia live performances are joyfully alive and infectious, while staying culturally relevant and hyper-aware.
BJ Snowden is an outsider artist who has been heralded far and wide by the likes of Fred Schneider of the B-52s and Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys, and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, MTVs Oddville, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and The Daily Show. A school-teacher by trade, she's guaranteed to put a smile on your face with her all-original Casio-laden singalongs and unapologetic adoration of all things Canadian.
Opening the evening will be a special collaboration between Portland's resident noisenik, sound-poet, and sometimes spiritual guide, id m theft able and Argentinian-born, digitally-minded vocalist, composer, and improviser, Andrea Pensado.
We can think of no better way to end the Space Gallery Annex's Trail Off showcase than with these spirited, unique, and uncompromising performers.
