First Friday: Party in the ICA 07/03/15
Celebrate Independence Day at the ICA!
 
Wavelengths: Martha Wainwright/ The Zs 07/10/15
From following in the footsteps of her acclaimed musical parents to lauching her career singing backup for older brother Rufus, folk seems to be singer/songwriter Martha Wainwright's birthright. The Z's, named 'one of the strongest avant-garde bands in New York' by the the New York Times, combine disparate elements: progressive jazz, minimalism, no wave, musical abstraction, prog rock, lengthy repetition, and unpredictability.
 
Wavelengths: How to Dress Well 07/17/15
From his debut 2010 album Love Remains, dubbed 'the biggest breakthrough in home-recorded-lo-fi in years,' by Pitchfork, Tom Krell's project How to Dress Well has provided audiences with an energetic mix of electronic pot and R&B.
 
The Secret in Their Eyes 07/23/15
Unpredictable, rich with symbolism, and mesmerizingly acted, this Best Foreign Film Oscar-winner directed by José Campanella lives up to its reputation. A retired court investigator hoping to find closure for a long unresolved homicide case—and for his unreciprocated love with his superior—both of which still haunt him decades later, decides to write a novel, reopening buried history and emotion. Primarily a thriller, the film also captures love in many different stages: young love that is passionately fulfilled, unconsummated love, and various forms of love in close friendships. With unconscious parts that are mysterious to others and to ourselves, there are many secrets in all of our eyes. Argentina, 2009, 129 min.
 
Wavelengths: !!! (DJ Set) 07/24/15
!!! was named after the click sound of the Khoisan language that, when written down, was signified by an exclamation point; while most commonly pronounced as “chk chk chk,” the band says any monosyllabic sound repeated three times will do. The Sacramento based dance-punk band’s sound ranges from quirky indie rock to funky electronica, both infused with high energy, heavy bass, and an art-disco vibe. As the Guardian says, they are “positively raring with the joys of sproingy bass, synthesized squelches, and stubborn, repetitive beats” sure to propel you to the dance floor.
 
Wavelengths: Pico Picante / Otto Von Schirach 07/31/15
DJ duo Pajaritos describes Picó Picante as a “non-stop dance party driven by global music influences.” Curated by 2015 Foster Prize winner Ricardo De Lima, the Boston-based monthly party features DJs from across the country and dance music from Latin house to tropical bass, to Moombahton and electronica. Otto Von Schirach, the self-titled “King of the Bermuda Triangle” grew up in Little Havana, Miami, surrounded by Miami bass, Cuban tropic music, Afro-Cuban noise, gangsta rap—and a White Magic–practicing grandmother. These musical and supernatural influences come through in unhinged and chaotic songs that merge dubstep, 80s dance music, grind, noise, psychobilly, garage rock, and tropical calypso: Pitchfork called one track “a fevered hallucination,” another “just the right mix of mutilated party anthem and breakneck cut/paste lunacy.”
 
First Fridays: White Hot 08/07/15
Get out to the waterfront in your summer whites and enjoy some oysters on the half shell.
 
Wavelengths: Lisa Hannigan + Aaron Dessner + Lucius 08/14/15
With her soulful, mystical vocals, delicate instrumentals played on vintage instruments, and self-knit album artwork, Lisa Hannigan has perfected a quirky musical ambience. She appears at the ICA with the National guitarist (and Wavelengths co-curator) Aaron Dessner. Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the retro-fabulous lead singers of indie-pop quintet Lucius, met at Boston's Berklee School of Music. One part 60s girl group, one part endearing alternative Americana, and one part hyper-stylized indie-rock, Lucius is the 'the missing link between Arcade Fire and Haim,' says The Guardian.
 
Wavelengths: Mykki Blanco 08/21/15
Mykki Blanco is a genre-bending, gender-bending, rapper known to feature spoken word by original riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna. With a punk hip-hop act that merges electronic music, rap, noise, and performance art, Blanco has worked with collaborators from British electronic dance music duo Basement Jaxx, to experimental hip-hop groups Death Grips, to Bjork.
 
Wavelengths: Kingdom 08/28/15
Brooklyn-born, Los Angeles-based DJ, producer, and label CEO Kingdom (a.k.a. Ezra Rubin) has been climbing the electronic music ranks with futuristic hybrids that merge mainstream and underground, resulting in mercurial, tightly produced, and irrestiable tracks.
 
Doug Varone & Dancers 10/16/15 To 10/17/15
Known for its expansive vision, versatility, and technical prowess, Doug Varone and Dancers create kinetically thrilling dances that reflect the complexity of the human spirit. From the smallest gesture to full-throttled bursts of movement. Varone's work can take your breath away. The company will perform the Boston premiere of ReComposed, inspired by American abstract atrist Joan Mitchell's pastel drawings and set to Max Richter's newly constructed version of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, along with other works.
 
This is Tango Now 11/20/15 To 11/22/15
Formed by renowned, Tony-winning tango artists Fernanda Ghi and Guillermo Merlo and musician Alfredo Minetti, This is Tango Now represents a unique approach to tango, reflecting an unconditional passion for the art form. Featuring a stellar company of 12 dancers and musicians performing the world premiere of Carmen...de Buenos Aires, this breathtaking new production of Carmen blends tango and flamenco with an original score based on Bizet's beloved melodies.
