New-Wave/ Post-Punk Night at Adelaide Hall
BEAUTIFUL NOTHING (Burlington, ON)
THE FOREIGN RESORT (Copenhagen, Denmark)
SPECIAL GUESTS – To Be Announced
An eighties ignited sphere of driving electronics, thick, grimace inducing bass lines and soaring, dissonant guitar lines that would speak to the Pixies in their Bossanova years.
The Foreign Resort
The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave. The trio combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem.

Dir. Takako Matsumoto, 1 h 42 min, 2008 Japanese with English subtitles
Who is Yayoi Kusama? This rarely shown candid observational documentary captures Yayoi Kusama’s daily activities and creative process over a period of several months in 2006 – 2007 as she diligently works to complete a series of 50 large monochrome drawings. Kusama is seen in her studio, meeting with visiting curators, and reflecting on her life and success. Born in 1929, Yayoi Kusama grew up near her family’s plant nursery in Matsumoto, Japan. At nineteen she went to Kyoto to study the traditional Japanese style of painting known as Nihonga. During this time, she began experimenting with abstraction, but it was not until she arrived in the United States, in 1957, that her career took off
