Two painters playing music Wednesday night at Best Video in Hamden

Best Video Performance Space
1842 Whitney Ave., Hamden, (203) 287-9286
Christopher Mir & Paul Panamarenko In Concert
Wed., Oct. 3, 7:30 p.m.

Picture this: Christopher Mir and Paul Panamarenko are known around the area as being highly regarded painters. But their artistry also extends to music-making. Mir and Panamarenko each will perform a solo acoustic set at Best Video Performance Space this Wed., Oct. 3, at 7:30 p.m.

Mir's music combines intertwined strands of folk music, murder ballads and indie rock. Or, as he tells me in an email: "Roll the stone up the hill, and it rolls back down. That's what writing songs is all about. Also it's about stealing lyrics from old Baptist hymns. The gods command!!!"

Paul Panamarenko is a Texas-born musician who immigrated to New Haven via Oakland, CA. He plays in the vein of Hank Williams, Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash.

(No, this blog isn't going to start covering music as well as visual art. But I book the music shows at Best Video and thought it worth mentioning. The show is free and open to the public.)
