Arto Lindsay, famed art rocker and co-founder of the seminal No Wave group DNA will perform at the New Museum tomorrow as a part of the museum’s continuing “Get Weird” music series.
Living in Brazil, Lindsay was exposed to the burgeoning Tropicália movement at an early age. In over thirty years of avante-garde music-making, Lindsay has moved freely between rock, pop, bossa nova and experimental music. Consistently fusing the two worlds of art and music, he has collaborated with both visual and audio artists such as Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Rodney Graham, Marc Ribot, and Ryuichi Sakamoto. In conjunction with the New Museums’ exhibition “Come Closer: Art Around the Bowery, 1969–1989″ and their recent aren’t-old-culture-things-still-cooler kick, Lindsay will play songs from his upcoming career retrospective album tomorrow, Friday the 30th.
