Insecto-Ray Orchestra @ ArtSpeak

What: ArtSpeak
When: Saturday, 9/29, 8:30 pm
Where: Mighty Fine Arts, 409A N. Tyler St., 75208

WordSpace presents performance art in conjunction with Andy Don Emmons’ art exhibition at Mighty Fine Arts. 

Insecto-Ray Orchestra, features the immensely talented Marco Villalobos and his awesome musical partner Werner Heimlich, The Insecto-Ray Orchestra could be described as a neo-psychedelic mutant jazz spoken word disco dance band if you’re impressed with labels but they really pretty much define themselves as they go along, constantly overstepping musical boundaries and endlessly improvising and experimenting. This is only possible and intriguing due to the virtuosity of the players and their immense talents. Be sure to come out and check out the Insecto-Rays in a rare intimate setting.
This performance is in conjunction with the Artist reception for the Andy Don Emmons Show at MFA Gallery. Yes Oak Cliff’s legendary hickster genius will be loading up the gallery with brand spanking new art that will set your brain to reeling and rocking. Mr. Andy Don will be channeling the haints of East Texas and digging deep into his back woods aesthetic. You can be sure there won’t be any artsy posturing going on cause this will be some genuine low down for real Art. Get ready!
