Facebook event | Ticket info ($60-$110)

Does something referred to as an “antifestival” appeal to you in any way whatsoever? Do you like things “carefully curated”? Do you have $60-$110? Well, you’re in luck. The beautiful weirdos at Basilica (including Melissa Auf der Maur of Smashing Pumpkins fame) have carefully curated a thing for you. It looks good. From ticket info page:

“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 anti­festival” 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.”
