We are happy to announce that Embrace Chaos is joining forces with ABOVE GROUND on April 16th at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles.
Presented by Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and Billy Morrison (Billy Idol) who will join forces with their musician friends and special guest performers, this immersive evening of art and music will celebrate the vinyl album as an art form, and at the same time raise awareness and funds for the treatment of mental health, with the profits being donated to MusiCares.
Two seminal albums will be performed in their entirety—Kings Of The Wild Frontier by Adam And The Ants and The Velvet Underground & Nico by Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground—with completely different stage sets and production for each album’s performance.
Guitarists Navarro and Morrison will be joined by bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), drummers Erik Eldenius (Billy Idol) and Josh Freese as well as violinist Lili Haydn, plus special guests Billy Idol, Courtney Love, Jesse Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Franky Perez and more.
During the intermission between performances, there will be speeches from people in the mental health field and a small memorabilia auction to raise funds, along with art displays and information booths. Revolver Gallery will showcase works by Andy Warhol.
