"Sad Boy Church"

When: Fri., Aug. 7, 6 p.m. 2015

Since blipping our radar back in 2012, the artist now known simply as Saakred has evolved considerably, experimenting with an array of genres (from dark electronica to “mestizaje blues”), coming out as transgender and charting unexpected territory with 2015’s Make Believe, an EP which Current music editor Matt Stieb described as “a vision of taut and emotional rock ‘n’ roll.” In an effort to raise funds to attend a five-month program at Burren College of Art in Ireland, Saakred is unveiling “Sad Boy Church,” an exhibition and sale of visual art enhanced with a short, intimate performance.
