Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks
Ballroom Marfa hosted a free performance of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks in the Ballroom courtyard with an opening performance from Party With Death. Slasher Flicks is comprised of Avey Tare, Angel Deradoorian and Jeremy Hyman, names you may recognize from Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors and Ponytail. Their album, Enter the Slasher House, was originally composed by Tare on acoustic guitar, then fleshed out with Deradoorian’s keyboards and Hyman’s drums. Attentive listeners may detect distinctive signatures of each members’ previous affiliations, but the Slasher Flicks sound is a world unto itself.
Enter the Slasher House is available on Domino. It’s currently streaming with Abby Portner’s pleasantly overwhelming album-length video of damaged VHS cartoon and horror movie imagery (see below).
