Miami Light Project Presents “Timur and the Dime Museum”

Miami Light Project Presents Timur and the Dime MuseumApril 18 & 19 - The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse, 404 NW 26 Street, Miami Wynwood Arts District

Miami Light Project is proud to present the South Eastern U.S. premiere of the acclaimed, Los Angeles-based “Timur and the Dime Museum” on April 18-19, 2014 at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse in Wynwood. The post-punk glam band Timur and the Dime Museum fuses alternative indie sounds with fierceness and theatricality. Formed in 2010, the band is led by Kazakhstan born opera singer Timur. Displaying the full arsenal of vocals and deliciously thick orchestral textures, Timur and the Dime Museum’s performance tell stories of demented passions, global catastrophes and social orders.

The first night of their Light Box residency on Friday, April 18th at 8pm, will feature a performance of Timur and the Dime Museum’s latest program, Collapse, a post-ecological Requiem, that is envisioned as a sardonically theatrical mass service, where different stories are refracted through the hauntingly eclectic sound of the band and the post-punk voice of Timur. Re-imagining the traditional Requiem form into a band-driven song cycle for the 21st century, Collapse will also feature live-mixed projections by the award-winning video artist Jesse Gilbert (World Technology Network fellow). Tickets are $20 or $50 for VIP.

The Saturday, April 19th program begins at 7pm and is dubbed the Timur and the Dime Museum Karaoke Spectacular; it will also serve as Miami Light Project’s annual fundraiser. In addition to the concert, tickets will include an after party with food and open bar. As an added bonus, some lucky audience members will be invited to perform select karaoke songs with Timur and the Dime Museum as the backing band! Funds raised for this event will support several Miami Light Project artistic programs including The Contemporary Performance Series; Here and Now, MLP’s signature commission program for Miami-based artists; and the Technical Fellowship Program, a workforce training project. Fundraiser and after party tickets are $100 each. Student and Senior tickets will be available at the door.
