Opening Night Party/A Toast to COIL
Joro-Boro is a crunk charlatan born in Bulgaria. He plays and promotes etnoteck, glitch-folk and post-national bass – the dirty local side of globalization force-fed back into a party without borders detonating the conglomerated mono-culture.
Joro-Boro hosted MoGlo (Modern Global) on Radio New York 91.5FM, has toured with Balkan Beat Box, and has performed with artists ranging from Bassnectar to Tinariwen. He established himself over seven years as the resident DJ in the Bulgarian Bar (Mehanata) in New York City. In 2007 he left his residency there and developed the charlatan/artist alter ego Joro De Boro.
Hannah Thiem (Copal | Nyxyss) is an evocative violinist combining gypsy stylings and background textures of deep electronic and ambient sounds. On stage, Hannah has opened for The Rolling Stones (with Kanye West), Bassnectar at Stubb’s in Austin, TX (with Haj Ji and Jon Margulies), Shpongle Live at Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC (solo) and EOTO at the Skyway Theater in Minneapolis, MN (solo) and at House of Blues, Boston, MA (with the Zebbler Encanti Experience). She’s been sighted on TEDxBrooklyn with PjOE for a nationally broadcast performance, as well as a guest performer at the Alvin Ailey Gala in NYC.

WOAHMONE. Woahmyne. Woahmommy. Hmones. Woahbone. TheMone.
Once a month the Perv-eyors of WOAHMONE – Savannah Knoop, Nath Ann Carrera and Nica Ross – come together to create a monthly visual crisco disco ball celebrating the expansive radicalism of Queers and Womyn’s Libbers. Spanning the 60‘s, 70‘s, 80‘s, and beyond, WOAHMONE embraces the occult, the seedy, the ecstatic, and the experimental. Nath Ann Carrera and Savannah Knoop play music that straddles queer sexual/contextual history, while Nica Ross’ Ass-Troll Projections combine a pastiche of found films, homemade porn, and YouTube clips.

ETHYL EICHELBERGER AWARD NIGHT
The Ethyl Eichelberger Award is a commissioning award given to an artist or group that exemplifies Ethyl’s larger-than-life style and generosity of spirit. The recipient of the Award receives a show in the upcoming season at Performance Space 122 as well as a commission toward its creation.
Ethyl Eichelberger was a seminal performer, a landmark and a legend. His work inspired his contemporaries and those who came after him. His spirit and artistic adventurousness was an intrinsic component of what came to be viewed as the Performance Space 122 aesthetic. The Ethyl Eichelberger Award was created to honor Ethyl’s memory and to create a bridge between PS122’s past and future.
Celebrating artists whose work exemplifies Ethyl’s “larger than life style and generosity of spirit” is an integral part of the life of PS122 and an expression of our commitment to the creative spirit of a seminal artist whose struggle in the face of HIV inspired entire generations of artists and audiences. Through the Ethyl Eichelberger commissioning award, PS122 will continue to support innovative artists who make a vital contribution to the cultural life of New York City.

Geo Wyeth: Bad Ideas
Geo Wythe is a New York City based musician, performer, and visual artist. Geo derives inspiration from the mind numbing activities of daily life, and many of his performances and installations are generated from a place of deep despair and irreverent humor for the world around him. His work expands on popular music performance and contemporary song structure through experimenting with conceptual ideas of interruption, failure, and imitation in performance. He is an out female-to-male transsexual born in New York City (Hell’s Kitchen) in 1984 to a white father and an African-American mother. His works are darkly humorous and ecstatic meditations on the absurdity of these embodied experiences. Geo is currently developing a long term investigative research and performance project called HAUNTS, which catalogues and expresses his “run-ins” with the ghost of a racist gynecologist, who also happens to be his ancestor. His full-length studio album called ALIEN TAPES was released in June 2012.
