Genrebeast is a series of five album release parties from five wildly different bands by the same musician. Each night of the series will be held at Gamut Gallery, during the closing night of their next five exhibitions.
We believe music is about art movement, not genre; community, not scene; playing, not partying.
These are real live parties, and not stuffy soirees. Bring ear plugs.
GAMUT TURNS 4: Join Gamut Gallery as we host a special birthday party extravaganza featuring a 3-part bash: the closing reception for our current exhibit Ineffable; Genrebeast 2, the second CD release party featuring DEATHDANCE; and, our own eclectic mix of live acts and performance.
For this years birthday, Gamuts walls will be filed with bewitching art from Ineffable, a collaborative exhibition of mixed media and photography between artist Ramses Alarcon Sanchez and 11 local photographers. The artwork examines perception and explores the transcendental.
We welcome back the genre-obliterating project, Genrebeast for their second CD release party featuring the sophisticated, cinematic electronica sounds of duo KPT and Gus Watkins DEATHDANCE. Genrebeast is a visceral art/sound experience that puts Gamut Gallery at the epicenter of a 6-month-long music residency and features five album releases from five contradistinctive bands to coincide with five exhibition finales. Gamut is proud to host this series that merges an audience of art and music lovers alike for sensory exploration.
Music will continue into the night with sets from rap act RP Hooks, deep house and techno from Berndt and Ryote of Kajunga Records, and soulful grunge-folk from Half Tramp. Plus, a live performance piece meets acoustic act from our friends Qassandra & Apollo, comedy courtesy of the new cable access show "And Now It's", and a live VJ feed from Omen projected onto our backyard patio. Also, because Gamut just loves to go out on a limb, well be showcasing an experimental twist on live body painting - live mannequin painting. Weve invited some of our favorite local artists (including Repo, Erin Sayer, Greta Claire, Benjamin Wuest, Jacob Eidem, Alex Gregory and more) to dissemble mannequins and paint/draw/embellish their signature styles onto a limb/body part. At the end of the night, the adorned limbs will sold as memorandums in an auction to support future programming at Gamut Gallery.
Come for the art and music, stay for the party and help us raise a toast to thank the local art community for four fantastic years of continued support and for letting us be the innovative, aberrant gallery that we are.
