alice anderson Monumental Installations Made Of Doll Hair

Alice Anderson’s giant installations created out thousands of feet of red colored doll hair are a thing of wonder. Selected for its relationship to her own bright red hair, Anderson selected the material to refer to her childhood where she invented rituals based around her hair to calm her anxieties when left home alone. Draped over buildings, walls, and every imaginable surface, Anderson’s work is just as much about reinterpreting an everyday material as it is about coming to terms with the ghosts of her youth.

Previously B/D interviewed artist Erik Mark Sandberg recently sent in this beautiful new print! I believe its a cosmic rainbow-vision ghome appearing between two prismachrome portals, that also happened to let in a couple visitors from beyond. Just a guess. Some detail shots below- now hanging in my office!

Surfer Blood opened The Summer Twilight Concert Series At The Santa Monica Pier

Photo by Frank Maddocks.

Thursday nights in Santa Monica, CA are going to be a lot louder now that the 29th Annual Twilight Concerts at the Pier are back. Packing in 10,000+ people to the opening night this past Thursday July 11th, Surfer Blood tore through songs off of their new album, Pythons as people on the beach danced on their blankets. The audience on the pier itself sang along and moshed which made singer, John Paul Pitts follow along jumping into the crowd himself.

This year, the recently relaunched Myspace is presenting the shows and will even be streaming a lot of them online. With the help of Rum & Humble and Spaceland Presents, the incredible lineup of upcoming concerts include Meshell Ndegeocello, No Age, Hanni El Khatib, The English Beat, Nick Waterhouse, Gardens & Villa along with Mr. Little Jeans, and Jimmy Cliff capping off the series on September 12th. All the shows are from 7-10pm, but beware that the adjacent parking lots fill up early. Also, don’t forget to visit the many vendors on the pier. I was able to grab one of the famous beef and pickle tacos from the Mas Malo stand as well as browse through the very cool collection of sunglasses from Brazil at the Chili Beans truck. Check out the schedule here and I’ll see you at the beach!

Living Legend and Founding Member of the Velvet Underground, John Cale

John Cale founded The Velvet Underground back in 1965 with Lou Reed and he’s been going strong ever since. The living legend turned 70 earlier this year and yes, he’s been making music for almost 50 years! His fifteenth solo album, Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood came out this past October on Double Six Records to great reviews.

You can still get tickets for tonight’s last stop of his West Coast tour at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles with opener Cass McCombs via Ticketmaster. He also has three special performances in January, 2013 (A tribute to Nico and Paris 1919) at New York’s Brooklyn Academy of Music. Check out the video for Face to the Sky and do what you can to make it to one of these rare shows.
