Five Songs for Fillmore Avenue

Dates: July 16-18, 2021 Time: 9:00pm Performance
Location: Light/Station, 608 Fillmore Ave. Buffalo, NY 14212

Five Songs for Fillmore Avenue is the world-premiere of a new site-specific performance that combines theatre, cinema, and live music. Buffalo-based musician John Toohill (Night Slaves; Radiation Risks; Alpha Hopper) fronts his newly formed band NINES MECCA as the composer for this new project blending garage, noise, rock and roll, and psychedelia into 5 shots of absolutely blistering hardcore punk. Each sonic wall is punctuated by trancelike, experimental passages that accompany projection designer Brian Milbrand’s video collage work, accompanied by lighting design and installation by Buffalo’s Eclectric Oil and Light. Five Songs for Fillmore Avenue is conceptualized by Kenneth Collins, the Artistic Director of New York City’s Temporary Distortion (“The hallmark of this company is a tight integration of style and substance.” – The New York Times), as part of a Creative Arts Initiative residency at the University at Buffalo. This project will be available as a digital experience, a recorded album, and as a distanced, live outdoors performance in the courtyard of the Torn Space design studio.
