This Week in WCP Arts: Bruise Cruise, Fraser Gallery, Gauguin

Far Out vs. Hot Dang, Vol. 15

D.C.'s cultural chasm certainly was not devoid of noise this week. But the mighty Far Out vs. Hot Dang does not necessarily care about the loudest noises. Whispers, farts, thuds, hisses, barks, kisses, moans—it all matters.

“SELF’s message that small steps can add up to major change really resonates with the power base here in D.C.”

Good morning! About 100 people protested last night outside the National Portrait Gallery, where (as reported on Arts Desk), artist Adrian Parsons projected a four-minute David Wojnarowicz's 1987 video artwork A Fire in My Belly—which the Smithsonian removed earlier this week. WaPo's Jessica Dawson and TBD's Maura Judkis were both there and brought photographers.

The Exit Interview: Carol Bui

Here are some of the things Carol Bui got into between releasing her last album, 2007's harrowing and cathartic Everyone Wore White, and recording her new project, which doesn't yet have a name, and which she hopes to release in 2011: Bellydancing.

New Carol Bui Song

Learning to play the drums has been good for Carol Bui, at least if this new song that she recently posted to Myspace is any indication. "Mira You're Free With Me" is heavy on percussion, with tambourines, shakers, and hand claps generously deployed throughout. The big guitar riff ties it all together though and [...]
