Constantly defying classification, THE RESIDENTS have been regarded as icons in the world of experimental music for almost fifty years. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video, with their videos included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Their lengthy career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored numerous films and TV series as well as several projects for MTV. In addition, the group is also thriving in the world of digital media having released ten DVDs, and two internet series.
The evening will commence with a screening of THE RESIDENT’s Feature Film:
TRIPLE TROUBLE, the long awaited first feature film from The Residents, San Francisco’s premier underground band since 1972, is now available for screenings at festivals, theaters and clubs throughout the world.
Triple Trouble tells the story of Junior Rose, a former priest who lost faith in the church and became a plumber. Accompanied by Cherry, an AI enhanced drone, the plumber slowly gathers evidence to support a bizarre theory: a fungus plugging sinks all over the city is a threat to humanity. Emotionally isolated after a divorce and the death of this mother, the former priest’s obsession swells at an alarming rate as his world slowly spirals out of control.
