SPEAKEASY

SPEAKEASY
featuring Mydolls
Friday, March 3, 2017
7 PM
Free Admission

Lawndale Art Center is proud to present the third installment of SPEAKEASY, a program featuring music, performance, and discussions of contemporary art that takes its cue from the eponymously titled series that took place at Lawndale from 1993-2002. Featuring Mydolls' release of their limited edition collectible red vinyl EP, It’s Too Hot for Revolution, and a Q and A session with friend of the band and former Lawndale Executive Director Mary Ross Taylor, SPEAKEASY will take place on Friday, March 3, 2017, at 7 pm.

Mydolls, Houston’s original femme punk band, has been part of the music scene since founding in 1978. Part of the first wave punk scene, Mydolls was fronted by girl punk rockers who have since paved a path for women in the arts and continue to empower a new generation of fans. Mydolls continues to play national and statewide shows on a regular basis.

The event is free and open to the public. Gallery Hours are 12-6 PM.

SPEAKEASY
featuring Jandek

8 PM
Free Admission

Lawndale Art Center is proud to present SPEAKEASY, a new program initiative that re-envisions Lawndale's "Speakeasy" series that took place from 1993-2002. This series will cast a reflexive eye on Lawndale's historical relationship to live music, performance and the exploration of issues in contemporary art.

Our second event will take place on Friday, January 6, 2017, at 8pm featuring a solo performance by Jandek.

Cold beverages generously provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

Jandek is the musical project of Corwood Industries, a record label that operates out of Houston, TX. Since 1978, Jandek/Corwood Industries has independently released over 100 albums/DVDs of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk, rock, and blues songs without ever granting an interview or providing any biographical information. Jandek often plays a highly idiosyncratic and frequently atonal form of folk, rock, classical, and blues music, at times using an open and unconventional chord structure. The name "Jandek" is most commonly used to refer specifically to the project.
