For the second year running, PhilaMOCA celebrates the bizzare, disturbing and mind-bending world of David Lynch and the Philadelphia neighborhood that inspired him with their Eraserhood Forever (and Ever) variety show on July 12th. There will be musical performances by Pittsburgh’s Silencio (who explore the dreamy, orchestral worlds of Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti) and local party band Weird Hot in addition to a topical burlesque show, art show and the premiere of PhilaMOCA’s Eraserhood Forever – a short film that delves into the evolution of the Callowhill neighborhood. Tickets and information for the all-ages event can be found on the Facebook event page here. Take a look back at last year’s celebration here and watch Silencio perform “Slow Sin Jazz” below.
The haunting, surrealist movies by filmmaker David Lynch always have the perfect moody musical accompaniment – and Pittsburgh ensemble Silencio picks up on that big time. The group plays World Cafe Live tonight, performing a selection of musical moments from Erasherhead to Mullholland Drive, from which the group borrowed its name. The giant red curtain at the back up the upstairs stage will probably make more than a few audience members think of Twin Peaks. Tickets to the show are $15 and available here; below, watch Silencio perform Eraserhead‘s “In Heaven.”
