LAST ever Backyart @ 649 Metropolitan this Saturday, 8/28!

August 27, 2010

Saturday, August 28, 2010                                                                  7-10pm

After 3 years, 24 amazing events and over 250 artists, Backyart is leaving 649 Metropolitan Avenue.  Come say goodbye to us, and learn what the future holds for Backyart and the Backyart team this Saturday, August 28th.  We couldn’t be happier with our closing line-up.  See below for details (plus special guests!)

Jed Clarke presents his one of a kind sketch hilarity…with puppets in Dutch Gold.

Excerpts from “Tremble” a new psychological thriller by playwright Judah Skoff.  Directed by Ruis Woertendyke.

– “TREMBLE is a story about the sometimes irrational demands of faith, and how it impacts those around the faithful.  What I have tried to do with TREMBLE is write a story that anyone can relate to…using grounded storylines as a jumping off point for broader and more abstract questions such as: what goes into faith? What are faith’s true demands? Who are its victims? TREMBLE ends on an ambiguous note, as I think a play about faith must, because there aren’t really any answers.”

The short horror film, Eye Contact.

– “Eye Contact was shot in New Jersey in late 2007 and completed in 2008. Its budget was $178 dollars and it was shot over the course of 3 days. The intended purpose of Eye Contact is to take an audience back to the unsettling days of 1970’s horror; a time before torture, slasher, and splatter films ruled the day. A time when suspense and terror made our blood run cold.”

The banjo driven folk rock quartet Tall Tall Trees invite you to dance.

– “New York City quartet Tall Tall Trees’ self-titled debut, released in 2009 is garnering high praise for it’s unusual blend of bluegrass, world music, and indie rock. Founded by songwriter/multi-        instrumentalist Mike Savino in 2006, along with guitarist Kyle Sanna, drummer Mathias Kunzli and bassist Benjamin Campbell, the band has developed a reputation for it’s high energy shows and dynamic musicianship.”

Visual artist Mason Saltarrelli will be displaying a solo show in the Backyart studio.

-“Gouache and oil are my mediums of choice as a self-taught painter from New Orleans,La. Found objects inspire me to treat painting as a jazz musician treats a melody. Much like a jazz artist plays a solo of his interpretation off a melody, I create my work by finding inspiration in found images and objects and creating a unique solo. Kachina dolls, St. Lucy, and war generals are common themes in my paintings.”

***Hope to see you there!***
