St. Patrick’s Day leads us into a gorgeous weekend filled with beer, basketball and the imminent arrival of spring. Despite tradition, some will choose not to wear green on Friday, hoping that one of the many pinches they receive might wake them up from a political nightmare.
Whether or not that works, there are always plenty of great Triad events to enjoy:
- Anthony Braxton @ SECCA (W-S), 7 p.m.
SECCA opens its SoundSeen: Remix exhibit with a live performance by legendary jazz artist Anthony Braxton. SoundSeen: Remix presents the musical compositions of three artists — Braxton, John Cage and Christian Marclay — in which drawings, diagrams and images replace the musical notation to become a “graphic score.” More info at secca.org.
- Mr. Gaga @ Aperture Cinema (W-S), 8 p.m.
Helen Simoneau Danse and Aperture Cinema co-present a screening of Tomer Heymann’s film, Mr. Gaga. The documentary tells the story of the internationally acclaimed choreographer Ohad Naharin, who invented the form of dance and “movement language” known as Gaga. More info at aperturecinema.com.
- Art Chantry @ High Point University, 11 a.m.
A graphic designer from Tacoma, Wash., Art Chantry uses analog techniques to observe the arcane and obscure.
