David Binney

Painting new sounds on a moving canvas

By Mel Minter

The back and one inside panel of alto saxophonist David Binney’s latest recording, Third Occasion, are adorned with an artfully arranged collection of Binney photographs taken at a wide variety of places and times. Sweeping landscapes, eccentrically cropped portraits, still lifes—each reveals a painterly sensibility, with a sure sense of line, color and form. Taken as a whole, each collection offers an engagingly episodic journey through a life rich in experience, undertaken with an open, visceral connection to the mysteries and delights of being.

EVENT HORIZON (Saturday, May 28)

Music for Heroes

Cloak and Dagger Fest • Gorgon City • electronic, house • Treasure Fingers • dance • option4

By Megan Reneau
No super-heroines will be present to heal anyone, but the music performed on May 27 and 28 starting at 8pm for Cloak and Dagger Fest at the El Rey Theater and Effex may just do that for those young people still recovering from school. Many well known DJs like Gorgon City, Two Fresh, Vindata, Lee Foss, Lee K, MANIK and Cashmere Cat are performing and even more local favorites like Reverend Mitton, Matthew Levi, DJ Eldon, Burn The Disco, PEZZ and DJ Ohm breaking down beats, as well. If you're not able to teleport like some dark, mysterious strangers, you can get tickets for entry starting at $15 for entry to Effex on day two (only folks 21 and up allowed), $20 for entry to El Rey on day one (18 years and older on this day) and $28 for the whole weekend.
