Festival blurbage:

For the sixth straight year, Basilica Hudson's Founders and Creative Directors Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone are working in collaboration with The Creative Independent Editor in Chief Brandon Stosuy to program Basilica SoundScape, a carefully curated weekend that's been called "the anti festival" by various publications for offering of a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature. This year they welcome back previous BSS Creative Director Michael Renaud to handle all aspects of visual design for the event and have added the talents of a special guest curator, Jenn Pelly, editor at Pitchfork, and author of a forthcoming book on the Raincoats.

As you know, Basilica Hudson is in a converted industrial space in Hudson (near the Amtrak station), about a 45-minute drive from Albany.

I still don't know why it has to look like a spaceship. There are countless downtown theaters that fit in aesthetically with their surroundings. I was just in Arlington, Massachusetts and they have a six screen theater in a building fronted with a bakery, a toy store, a salon... Thinking that theaters can only look like suburban malls shows either a lack of imagination or a lack of awareness.
