One of the hardest working mama musicians in this town, Elizabeth McQueen, is at it again. We’ve had her as a performer for the showcases we have put on during SXSW with Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child. We’ve seen her perform as part of the Soul of a Musician Series. We’ve listened to her DJ on KUTX. I assume she sleeps, but I’m not sure quite when that happens.
She’s done, among other genres, jazz, country and rock and roll, and now she is venturing into new territory yet again. Elizabeth’s planning an interactive art installation called Infinity + Infinity. She will be joined by guitarist Lauren Gurgiolo and multi-instrumentalist Lindsay Greene on a set designed and built by visual artist Jerome Morrison. The band will be debuting a set of songs about the joys, ambivalences and heartaches of long-term commitment while the audience creates pseudoholographic visuals with their bodies. You can either attend with adults or bring along your kids. On Sunday, March 8th, the band will host a special kid-friendly playdate so the little ones can interact with the pseudoholographic structures.
Elizabeth concedes that it’s a little hard to describe in words, so here’s a video from last year’s Holiday Stroll to give you an idea of what’s in store.
