    Pleasure Dome presents Close To Here – Saudade: A Performance by Roy Dib & Symposium with Laura U. Marks & Nahed Mansour

    Close to Here – Saudade , is a story of war told through the rituals of funerals where every time a young man decides to go to war, his family and friends conduct a rehearsal for his funeral before he leaves. The work explores this concept in all aspects: social, psychological, political, anthropological, gendered and historical. The context is an unnamed city where citizens have a new orientation and a new language made from the logic of chaos and the impulse to have control over the city.

    Performance 12pm
    Complimentary Lunch 1pm
    Symposium 2pm
    Reception 5pm

    Matthew Logan Vasquez is feeling optimistic. That’s not necessarily apparent the first time you spin his new full-length solo album.

    Each track on Matthew Logan Does What He Wants feels urgent and intense. Impatient landlords, financial woes and other frustrations fan the agitation embedded in the opening track, Same. Isolation darkens the brooding images of From Behind The Glass. Death takes a bow on The Fighter. Vasquez can’t help but juxtapose the celebration of Fatherhood with a lament that we ain’t got the money to pay the hospital. The music enhances this impression.

    Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, Froth first garnered attention with their debut LP, 'Patterns.' Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014.
