120+ years of US music showcased
Archive footage of music from across America is to be shown at SVA on Friday at 8pm
I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore is a presentation by Eric Isaacson from Mississippi Records.
His presentation features staggering and fascinating footage of musicians shot by the world famous song collector Alan Lomax as well as archival film, images and stories carefully dug out from Mississippi's archive, spanning 1890 to now.
Hosted by Isaacson, who runs the Mississippi Record store and label HQ in Portland, Oregon, the show illustrates Eric's own special history of underground music movements from across the US' wide cultural spectrum.
The live footage is culled from rarely seen film shot during Lomax's North American travels between 1978 and 1985 as well as Mississippi Record's own library of folk blues, gospel, international and punk music archives.
Isaacson will also present a slide show and talk, take questions and DJ songs.
Tickets are £5 in advance and £7 on the night.
