    Balthrop, Alabama

    Presented by at MASS MoCA

    August 29, 2009


    Balthrop, Alabama

    The theatrical folk-rock art collective Balthrop, Alabama combines the siblings Lauren and Pascal Balthrop with former members of Rainer Maria and their Brooklyn neighbors. Artist Michael Arthur accompanies the band on pen and ink, illustrating the songs live with the drawings projected behind the band in the vaudeville tradition of a "chalk talk," a precursor to animation. The music is clever and darkly funny and the art is astonishing to watch. The band "combines breezy, melody-driven pop with Neutral Milk Hotel-style existential wailing." --Village Voice. Galleries open til 7:30 PM. The Alt Cabaret Series is supported by the Hans and Kate Morris Fund for New Music.
