"Plato's Drums"

When: Fri., Nov. 13, 7-9 p.m. 2015

After severe weather cut this year’s Luminaria down to a sole sloshy night, the multimedia arts festival is presenting rescheduled events under the umbrella of “Take Two” programming. Named in reference to Plato’s ominous “Allegory of the Cave,” “Plato’s Drums” pairs indie-rockers Buttercup with contemporary artist Chris Sauter for a conceptual concert experience. Staged in a vacant lot, the project entails a sculptural replica of the band’s drum set (rebuilt by Sauter after rain and wind destroyed the original), video projections and songs about “misinterpretation, blindness, the ego and drumming.”
