What You Missed: Anthology

11 Feb

The opening of the “Anthology: Images and Words from the Twin Cities Music Scene” photography show at XYandZ Gallery last night was hit. The people showed up, the “City of Music” videos were brilliant to see on the big screen in the Trylon Microcinema and the photos, carefully chosen, printed large in black frames on the white walls with concise but heartfelt snippets of text floating around them, the photos exploded off the walls. We can be as digitally connected as we want and share all these photos, recordings and videos through the miracle of the internet, but the beauty and connection of the physical object still has the power to fix a person in place and feel that something is real, really happening.

Another thing that really happened last night was that there was music, only appropriate for a photo show celebrating the local music scene. “Coloring Time” was the band, a mini-impromptu collaboration between Peter Pisano of Peter Wolf Crier, Joe Horton of No Bird Sing, Graham O’Brien of No Bird Sing and Abzorbr and Casey O’Brien of Abzorbr as well as many other projects, all of them. It was a good reminder of the Twin Cities ethos- hip hop and folk guitars mixing, honed musicians having fun and giving us something different, defiant of conventions, serious in craft and light-hearted in touch. The video below, as always, is a poor representation, you should have been there, it was a lot of fun.

    […] The gallery was jam packed all night, and all three photographers happily chatted with friends, family and art appreciators about their work, telling heartfelt stories about their subjects. Many of the musicians depicted in the photos showed up as well, including Mark Mallman, Chris Koza, Jeremy Messersmith, The Goondas, and Peter Pisano of Peter Wolf Crier, who played a surprise set along with smooth raps from Joe Horton of No Bird Sing–a special one off performance that they dubbed “Coloring Time.” Check the vid below from Cake in 15.
