One night only, Synchromy is teaming up with Viola-Vocal-Tube ensemble Spacepants once again to present Dance of the Spacepants Fairies, a fundraiser prom that will rival your blurry adolescent memories, mainly because at this one you won’t have to hide your booze. Spacepants will be setting the mood with witty banter and intermittent performances, DJs will provide dancing all night long, and there will be photobooths, food and drinks, fortune tellers, haiku writers, raffles prizes, and much much more. Bring your fake ID, and get your date now before they ask your best friend.
Spacepants is Jennifer Beattie and Diana Wade. While singing (Jen) and playing viola (Diana) at a music festival in Vermont, we met, realized we shared a life-long dream of wearing as many sparkles as possible, and ran joyfully out into a field to celebrate. Our enthusiasm attracted the attention of some rad aliens who invited us to party and jam with them. As luck would have it, they were having a full-on sparkle party. When we woke up the next day, groggy and disoriented, we discovered the rad aliens had left us three parting gifts: a 25-foot long tube, a mission, and several pairs of spacepants. The tube would of course become a central focus of our music-making. The mission, which we accepted, is to wear spacepants while bringing both our own and other earth-bound beings’ works of music, poetry, multi-media, storytelling and art to life.
Look, we don’t know if we’re doing crystals right, but we sure try.
