It Came From Brooklyn, Part 2: Julian Plenti at the Guggenheim


Get ready for the second installation of the Guggenheim's It Came From Brooklyn series-- this time with the honorable Julian Plenti, you know... a.k.a. Paul Banks of Interpol. Much like 2002's Turn on the Bright Lights, the solo debut of Mr. Banks, Julian Plenti is... Skyscraper, has been caught in a loop on my iTunes. These are the kind of tracks that embrace a space with a perfect frost, a mix of glistening sadness and a twirling danceable haze. Bring on the cold weather, with Skycraper, we're well equipped.

The series, named after Robert Gordon's birth of Rock 'n Roll novel It Came From Memphis, "is meant to have a cabaret-like atmosphere" says co-producer Sam Brumbaugh. Along with the rhythmic orchestrations of Brooklyn's experimental post rock I'm In You, this promises to be a night of echoing proportions, and in that rotunda quite literally. Plus, that Eugene Mirman is a funny guy.

So let's talk the money issue-- there's something about experiencing a show within the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, and although Brooklynites could argue against the cost of the show, spending the few extra bucks seems worth it. Plus, if you get there early, you can take a stroll through the current Kandinsky retrospective-- which on a regular day will cost you at least $15 (with student ID) in admission. Oh and, are we forgetting that it's Julian Plenti and Eugene Mirman!? I'm there.

Friday Sept. 25th @ the Guggenheim Museum, tickets available here.
