We shot and edited this video highlighting THE SURREAL SALON SOIRÉE at the Baton Rouge Gallery. The event consisted of great artwork from around the country and fantastic costumes worn by party guests.
The event was an exciting evening of visual art, live musical performances, outdoor installations and of course hundreds of attendees in costume, channeling their own pop-surrealist visions.
The Surreal Salon Soiree's headlinging musical act will be none other than Quintron & Miss Pussycat. The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes and entertaining puppet stories.
The pair has been making genre-defying noise for over 15 years, mining the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music with a distorted Hammond B-3 organ and a cache of self-made instruments (most notably among them, the Drum Buddy, a light-activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, lo-fi rhythmic patterns).
Meanwhile, Miss Pussycat breathes life into tactile, idiosyncratic characters with pithy dialogue and electronically pixelated soundtracks. In 2014, the two were chosen to be resident artists at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
The evening also included a set from RAV3N, a Baton Rouge native who recently returned home after a five-year stint in Los Angeles. While in California, she became a resident DJ at Eva Longoria's Beso restaurant. Locally, Baton Rouge residents might have heard her at City Bar, The Spanish Moon and other venues.
For many however, the highlight of the Soiree every year is the hundreds of unique and creative costumes worn by attendees. From pop-culture characters to homemade surrealist visions, every year attendees add to the artistic quality of Surreal Salon for this one night with wildly imaginative attire and outrageous creativity.
