This show is SOLD OUT!
Due to the very visual nature of the show, we are cutting off ticket sales a little low to make sure that everyone who has a ticket can see the visuals. We will have tickets available at the door for great side stage seats with limited views of the visuals.
Tickets are $22 in advance, $27 day of show (including all service charges). They are also available through Hold My Ticket (112 2nd St SW), 505-886-1251, Monday to Friday 9 AM - 6 PM, Sat & Sun 11 AM - 6 PM.
A limited number of pre-show VIP Meet & Greet Tickets are available for $55. This will also give you first access to the theater, which is handy since the Outpost is General Admission seating.
"In her near-13-year career that's seen six studio albums and a Golden Globe nomination for best original score, King has earned critical acclaim for the way she combines unusual tunings, complex fingerstyle picking, and slap bass techniques to create soundscapes that range from instrumental acoustic work to high-voltage rock songs. Now, she's using her guitar in an entirely new way: as a projection screen."
Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto herself," composer and guitarist Kaki King [website | Amazon.com] is a true iconoclast. Over the past 13 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and the Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks, including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn's "Into The Wild," and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.
Her latest work, "The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body," is Kaki at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. This groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto her signature Ovation Adamas guitar which has been customized specifically for this production.
In addition to her own solo work, Kaki sometimes performs accompanied by NYC-based string quartet ETHEL. She has also performed at Carnegie Hall, premiering a classical piece commissioned by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
