I. Love. This. Show.
As far as I was concerned, opening night for AS FILTHY AS IT GETS was not to be missed. The Methane Sisters truly rock, in every sense of the word. They eat, drink, smoke and snort rock & roll. Ann Jewlie and May Joon fully embody the hilarious ups and downs of the archetypal pop culture music gods the industry pops out by the decade. And we're along for the ride as The Sisters position themselves to catch up for a comeback.
And this comeback story is in technicolor, multimedia, 3-D. The songs in the show mostly are Methane standards, familiar to fans. The video work is visually tasty, funny, gritty. And the quiet moments of drama show a glimpse behind the songs and outrageous stage personalities. There's heart here.
Mucho kudos to Annele, Monessa, Sam Lerma, Jump-Start for such a delicious treat. And a huge thank you to Dino Foxx for helping me get some shots, which I hope somewhat live up to the occasion.

PERFORMANCE: The Methane Sisters at SA Current's "Mosaic Contemporary Art Month Wrap-Up Party" by Troy Wise
Charlie Fink, from Noah and the Whale, is a clever young man. Not only has he, and his band, provided you with a new surprising album The First Days of Spring, he has also created a compelling film as a visual narrative for it. In this current fast world of ours that is becoming less and less personalized, where attention span is lacking, he is challenging you to indulge and immerse in those painful, yet beautiful, times you didn’t (or still don’t) want to face.
