The first installment of the Guggenheim’s Dark Sounds, a three-part series of live music performances accompanying the exhibition Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance, kicks off on July 15th with Beirut, freshly off a two night stint at Music Hall of Williamsburg (with openers, and personal faves, WOOM).
…the series takes its thematic cue from the conceptual threads that weave through Haunted, aiming to evoke the exhibition’s elements of melancholy, ghostliness, the uncanny, and our collective and individual obsession with accessing the past. The series title is borrowed from the writings of Montague Rhodes James (1862–1936), who is often described as the father of the modern ghost story.
Of course, the show is SOLD OUT but we have a pair of tickets for one lucky reader. Just head on over to our Facebook page and tell us why you deserve them. Next up for Dark Sounds is Andrew Bird and Ian Schneller, which sounds equally as amazing and isn’t sold out… yet.
