Superior Viaduct presents the first West Coast performance of Nivhek
Saturday December 21st
The Lab, San Francisco
Doors at 8pm / Music at 9pm
with Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta opening
Under the name Nivhek, Liz Harris (Grouper) maps richly detailed inner worlds where enigmatic vibrations and voices glide dimly in and out of the void. Double album After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house consists of opaque assemblages of Mellotron, guitar, field recordings, tapes, and broken FX pedals. In pacing, palette, and poignancy, these sides rank among Harris' most stark, primordial work: fragile, feverish, ominous, and otherworldly.
Bay Area artist Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta will perform a piece titled "In Defense of She Who Smiles, the Armed Beauty, the Horse Thief."
