      EVENT DETAILS
      Xiu Xiu

      with Green Dreams, Nancy Babich
      Xiu Xiu began in 2002 to try to make music for people opposed to and opposed by the horror and disquiet of life.Throughout this time they have been called self flagellating, harsh, brutal, shocking, and perverse; but also genius, brilliant, unique, imaginative, and luminous."The group draws upon musical traditions of British post punk, 20th century classical, industrial noise, experimental and traditional percussion musics, 50s rock and roll, field recordings, queer dance pop and kosmische. Xiu Xiu has toured relentlessly all over the world. They have shared stages with Swans, Sun Ra Arkestra, Ben Frost, Zola Jesus, Deerhoof, Prurient, Liars, Matmos, Faust, Grouper, Genesis P Orridge, Angelo Badalamenti and thousands, perhaps billions, of other unstoppable musical fairies, dignitaries and saints. The past three years have been more productive than ever. Xiu Xiu released their 9th studio album (Angel Guts: Red Classroom), collaborated with Mitski, Merzbow, Eugene Robinson, Mantra Percussion, and Lawrence English and recorded reinterpretations of the music of Nina Simone (NINA), American religious songs (Unclouded Sky), Mozarts The Magic Flute, and the music of Twin Peaks (Plays The Music of Twin Peaks, which entered the Billboard charts twice in May and September). In this period Xiu Xiu also became involved in the art and film world. They created museum installations with Danh Vo, David Horvitz and Phil Collins and are currently scoring films for John Cameron Mitchell, Dennis Cooper and Susanne Sachsse.Xiu Xiu is Shayna Dunkelman, Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart. Each member, a respected and extraordinary artist in their right, together have never played with more intensity, dedication and doomy love/hate.
