I’ve been meaning to post about The Bell House‘s amazing upcoming schedule of events for a while now (and I still plan on doing so in the near future), but I think these two little gems merit a post of their own.

OSSO QUARTET PLAYS THE BQE
SAT 11/7: 7:30pm (EARLY SHOW) / $12
Sufjan Stevens’ The BQE is a 40-minute symphonic and cinematic exploration of the infamous Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, a major traffic artery that severed neighborhoods and contoured waterways with the brute force of modern urban planning. Commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of their Next Wave Festival in November 2007, the film tells a quintessentially American tale through an original film by Stevens and a live soundtrack by OSSO QUARTET.
FYI, the CD/DVD version The BQE is now available for pre-order at Asthmatic Kitty for a very reasonable $15.00.
