Upcoming CocoRosie events

Most people would be content with promoting a new single and video, doing some tour dates, and making plans for a future full-length album. But, then again, most people aren’t like Sierra and Bianca Casady of CocoRosie. In the next two weeks, the sisters have separate non-CocoRosie related events that we thought were worth mentioning.

On Saturday, June 7 at 8 PM Sierra Casady and pianist/violinist/cellist Gael Rakotondrabe – in collaboration with French artist Loris Gréaud – will put on an exclusive musical interpretation of the French opera “Cellar Door” libretto. The performance will be held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), The Mall in London, UK. You can find out more information right here.

Beginning the week after, Bianca Casady will have her art exhibition shown at the Wall House #2 in Groningen, Netherlands. The display will open with a special performance/BBQ/tea party on Thursday, June 12 from 8 – 11 PM. [Side note: unique art + earl grey + bratwurst w/ mustard, no ‘kraut = good times.] Following the opening event, the exhibition will run from June 14 until August 3, viewable on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 PM until 6 PM. Also, in conjunction with the art showing, Foundation Wall House #2 will be publishing Bianca’s book, Le Combat Spirituel. For additional information on the Wall House and its events, go to the website.

And finally, just a friendly reminder: CocoRosie’s digital single/video for "God Has a Voice, She Speaks Through Me" is available right now on this very site (right here). You can also preorder the limited-edition picture-disc 7” (available 7/8/08) at that same link. Enjoy.
