Vocal stylings of Jemaine Clement at Galaxia

Postby 4everconchordsfan » Sat Feb 06, 2010 2:25 am

Saw this tweet just a bit ago, is this genuine? Mention of Jemaine. No Bret or Flight of the Conchords. Bret's probably off on a great project of his own.

Galaxia

In the year 2010, when the world was promised so much, only one show can deliver - GALAXIA! - a once-in-a-lifetime interactive space-glam dance party, set in a retro video-game universe filled with deadly aliens, beautiful princesses and evil super villains.

On Saturday February 27th at The Garden Club, Wellington musicians The Beat Squad and KazaamBLAM! will be teaming up with local creative celebs to generate an audio-visual experience where Flash Gordon meets Star Wars on the dance floor. Look out for the vocal talents of Jemaine Clement and the malevolent styling of Vinyl Burns, in his first serious acting role, as Evil Lord Yerkoff (that’s spelt with a ‘J’).

Galaxia is a live-music dance party set inside a space invaders video game. Like 1970’s video games, Galaxia is not just for viewing and listening pleasure. Galaxia is an interactive show where party-goers engage in battling waves of alien and robot armies while being entertained in the style of a space-rock opera and dancing into the small hours.

Organiser and Beat Squad member, Stephen Templer, says that The Beat Squad and KazaamBLAM! were natural partners for the gig – “We both love theatrics, dressing up and we both play wild party music – although Kazaam are more electro and we’re more disco/dance-hall/funk with the occasional 80’s power-ballad.”

“We’ve wanted to do something crazy for a while and push our music into a more theatrical dimension. I got inspired at a dance party in Bristol this year – it got me thinking about how we could make something fresh for the Wellington scene.”

Stephen has roped in a large crew to help build robots, aliens, paint sets and back-drops and create costumes. “It’s quite amazing the number of people who want to get involved – it’s like a mini-carnival! Since it’s a one-off show we’re all working towards this single goal – making it the most awesome night for party-goers and the best damn space-glam-dance-party in New Zealand this summer.”

GALAXIA – where Flash Gordon meets Star Wars on the dance floor.

Also found this mention of Raybon Kahn:

Raybon Kan
Vegetable of the Arts

Is beauty truth? Is truth beauty? Do beauty queens tell the truth? Why aren't there truth pageants? Is a picture worth 1000 words? What if you want it framed? Now that we all agree completely on religion, climate, sex and human rights, Raybon tiptoes fearlessly around our one final teensy area of mild disagreement. Don't resist.

When: 09 – 13 February
Where: The Fringe Bar

Guh, I'm already in love with this Stephen Templar dude. His illustrations rock. I wish we could get T shirts with his designs. http://www.stephentempler.co.nz/illos/tshirt.html

Look, he's a member of this dance troupe. Sounds like something Jemaine should be involved in.

Lol at the Leisure Steppers....so bad they're good! I had no sound for their vid but loved how they incorporated the love doll at the end! :lol:

The Heavenly Burlesque looks cool, too.. :)

Thanks Red! Way cool.

Im hoping that later we will get some youtube goodness from the actual event. I'd give anything to see this craziness.
