George Herms: The Artist's Life @ Redcat

The image is the "Concerto for Cell Phone and Saw" George Herms at the saw.
Wow, what a show George Herms: The Artist's Life @ Redcat in the Disney Hall.
George loves free jazz. So much he had two free jazz bands on stage. He did his thing; assemblage, live on stage. Making art on paper plates and then flying them into the audience like frisbees. In the picture you can see the spiral staircase. That was played with 2x4s. He also brought out a buoy. Not a little buoy, we are talking eight foot in diameter buoy. It was suspended and then played with 2x4s. It was like an art/noise show. Very Cool!
The one thing I think he will leave as an institution at Redcat was to Start the evening with the After-party. Everyone can feel cool.
It is going tonight and Saturday if you want to see it. Order tickets online or you will be shut out.
