    Shabazz Palaces, Porter Ray

    Seattle abstractionist rap duo Shabazz Palaces – former Digable Planets rapper Ishmael Butler and multi-instrumentalist Tendai Maraire – earned critical approval with 2011’s progressive Black Up. The group simultaneously released its third and fourth albums in July, Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines. The compelling set underscores human reliance on machines through the view of an outsider or alien, providing expressive solutions via artistic deprogramming.

    Launched in 2001, Karachi’s Fuzön achieved subcontinental renown on both sides of the Indo-Pakistani divide. The band’s moniker is an Urdu derivation of “fusion” and they live up to it by blending Hindustani classical music with modern pop, rock, and jazz tropes. Rameez Mukhtar’s soaring vocals channel the late Mehdi Hassan, while guitarist Shallum Asher Xavier takes cues from Steve Vai and Joe Satriani.

    Special Screenings

    Zardoz (1974)

    Weird Wednesday: In this provocative fantasy film, the world is divided into Brutals (who worship a floating head called Zardoz that instructs that the gun is good and the penis is evil) and Immortals (who are pure consciousness and have become completely effete). Sean Connery is the Brutal who penetrates an Immortal community.
