As you may well know, the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan has started putting on monthly concerts in celebration of its 50th anniversary to highlight the multi-discipline creativity bursting out of Brooklyn. This Friday evening will mark the third show in the aptly-titled "It Came from Brooklyn" series, this time hosted by up-and-coming comedian Max Silvestri with performances by Yeasayer and Tanlines and a reading by writer Rachel Sherman. And in the spirit of Halloweekend, the concert boasts a favorite childhood delight: that's right, 3-D glasses!
To ensure trippy-good times are had, the museum will distribute a limited number of black paper ChromaDepth 3-D glasses for audience members to use during Yeasayer's 3-D light show. The band will project cycles of color and animation onto the wall of the museum's famed Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda to create a "synesthetic experience of music and light." You had us at "synesthetic."
Tickets for the show cost $40 for members and $45 for non-members, and you can purchase them here or at the door, if space allows. The show runs from 8 p.m.-12 a.m. Concertgoers can also traipse through the museum's Vasily Kandinksy exhibit currently on display.
Previous shows have included performances by artists like The Walkmen and Julian Plenti (a.k.a. Paul Banks of Interpol). For more information about this month's artists, check out the Guggenheim's website.
