111 Bicycles to Perform Tonight at Zipper Hall
When Monday Evening Concerts organizer Justin Urcis told us that tonight's performance outside Zipper Hall was unique, he wasn't kidding. Mauricio Kagel's 1996 composition, Eine Brise (‘A Breeze’), is an avant-garde histrionic work for 111 bicycles. At about 8:40 p.m. during intermission concert goers will head towards the sidewalk outside of Zipper Hall on Grand Avenue to watch and hear the performance of cyclists whizzing by whistling and playing bells. Tickets are $27 for a ticket, but you're welcome to just watch the sidewalk portion for free. In 2007, LAist claimed the Monday Evening Concert series as the "King of New Music" in Los Angeles. That sentiment still holds true today. blogdowntown has more details about the 222-wheeled performance.
