Riverside Theater Show partner at Turner Hall hosts The Residents Feb. 16th

The Residents will perform on February 16th at Turner Hall. This show will certainly be full of audio and visual splendor. The Residents have performed their art/music/craziness since the late 1960's. Nobody knows what the actual performers look like. That mystery makes this band even more enjoyable. I'm more about the art, than unmasking the artist.

I'm also happy to see that this event is not a Riverside Theater show. Turner Hall has a large stage, and the hall itself is small. That will make the event even more spectacular.

For those who have never heard of The Residents, they fancy themselves to be makers of avant-garde music, backed up by a visual show that cannot be described to easily. They have well over fifty albums to their name. These albums are hard to digest, if you don't open your mind and let them pour their liquid craziness into your head.

Some critics have no love for the band, where others certainly "get it." Those that follow the movements of The Residents are an intelligent, arty, fringe, group. They bring out the best in we normal humans that understand that music and art are not just what you hear on commercial radio, or see in the most famous of galleries. My favorite album is Mark Of The Mole.
