What is The Brickeaters? Briefly, an absurdist buddy story which teams together a very tall and young internet content screener with an aging career criminal, who work to prevent a middle-aged lottery winner from polluting the Los Angeles water supply with massive amounts of fluoride. Also, the narrator is an unreliable alcoholic! This show will definitely sell out. $25 advance, $30 at the doorAlternately seen as a rock band, an arts collective, and a spirit, The Residents are regarded as iconic in the world of experimental music. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video. Their early videos are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, and their Freak Show CD-ROM was featured in MOMA's "Looking at Music 3.0" exhibition. Their four-decade-long career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored numerous films and TV series as well as several projects for MTV.
