Anna Luisa Petrisko creates fantastical worlds beaming with technicolor visions of lush, bountiful futures, whether in her sculptures, performance art, sci-fi video game, Jeep Jeep, or new EP, Green. The multi-talented L.A. artist, who used to go by Jeepneys when she lived in the Bay Area, is heading up to Oakland on tour with experimental electronic duo Xina Xurner, whose album Queens of the Night juxtaposes operatic vocals with guttural howls and industrial club beats.
At Pro Arts in Oakland on Oct. 17, Petrisko and Xurner will join internationally touring DJ and sound artist Maria Chavez and Oakland's Tyler Holmes, whose D.I.Y. electronic music fuses the extremes of catchy electropop melodies and abrasive, computerized noise. (With Holmes, you never quite know what you're going to get: at one show I attended last year, they performed an acoustic set in drag as a sad clown.)
The evening promises an eclectic array of feminist, queer experimental pop. Details here.
