The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft’s annual Bourbon BASH is up there with the Speed Ball and other red-date social events.
(This used to be “The Bourbon Ball,” but has been reshaped from a stiff evening for VIPS to one more geared for 2012 audiences.)
Tonight, to up the spontaneity, KMAC is inviting everyone to Sandford Biggers performance, which starts late and will run late.
Here’s the 9-line from KMAC’s Julie Gross:
You may already know that we’re having our annual fundraising event, the Bourbon BASH, on Saturday, Oct. 20th. We’re bringing in famed NY multi-media artist Sanford Biggers and his current project Moon Medicine, which is a live performance that incorporates found images of punk, funk, film noir, sci-fi, traditional Samoan dance, and Buddhism with original video content as well as improvised turntableism and veejaying resulting in an evocative concert that is as much jam session as it is a performative film screening. That’s a mouthful indeed! HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN.
We want/need you to get the word out about inviting the public to Sanford’s performance. It’s late notice, but that’s part of the appeal. We’re calling it 40 for 40 at 10pm. The first 40 people get in for $40 each at 10 pm. The event is being held at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, 1701 West Muhammad Ali Boulevard on Sat. Oct. 20th. Doors will open for these select guests at 10 pm. This show will be astounding.
For the uninitiated, Sandford Biggers is part performance artist, part installation magician and NOTHING like you’ve seen in this sleepy little town.

The $40 deal is, we might note, the appealing alternative to the 300 bucks everyone else is paying.
And you’ll still (probably) get your photo in the Voice-Tribune standing next to Chris Morris!
You can get the tickets here.
See you there ….
