The answer is far from simple; sister duo Taraka and Nimai Larson have lived in ashrams, worked for utopian architects, written manifestos, delivered lectures from pools of fake blood, their art has been exhibited internationally conducted group exorcisms disguised as VHS workouts, inventing a vegan cook books to writing love blogs, and have now finished inventing an apocalypse on which to base their new pseudo-compilation album, Top Ten Hits of the End of the World, comprised of ten singles "channeled" from fictional deceased pop bands. Prince Rama are constantly breaking the mold of what is acceptable to forge a dizzying universe that is wholly their ownBased in France, Video Love mixes drummer and vocalist Elmapi’s fanciful “electro pop” concoctions with Matterlink’s video sampling, which tends to favor scenes from obscure B movies. They have created an explosive and highly original blend of sound, image, and performance.Multidisciplinary artist Katie Macyshyn personifies pop, politics, and psychedelia through her performance, video, and costume works. Embracing garish glamour and camp, Macyshyn often creates celebrity characters at the end of their time. These characters live in missed opportunities, trying to grasp at the energy which remains from their supernova. Can they find peace before it’s too late?Poster via Jourdan Betette (http://magickbat.com/) View Larger

Is D.C.’s Music Scene Shutting Out Disabled Music Fans?

But all venues can take steps to do better by disabled showgoers. Independent promoter Sasha Lord, who books Comet Ping Pong, says getting the word out about local venues’ accessibility—or inaccessibility—is key. “Be proactive,” she says. “Every venue should assess their accessibility. Knowing your limitations should be the first thing.”

Happy and honored to be a part of this very important article by Tori Kerr for Bandwidth regarding the DC music scene’s accessibility — be sure to read it, and keep this discussion going!
