Patriots opera, The Whale, Something on the Wing at Highwire

Thursday, July 19 at 8 PM – 10 PM

Highwire Arts presents an evening mixing music and theater, with guest artists from New York.

First, Something on the Wing, a project led by Highwire’s own Ray Palmer, performs a mix of poetry, music, and more.

Second, The Whale (Kory Cook and Edward Vasquez) play music that is big, like Texas. Free, noisy, experimental, acoustic, a duo, a trio, creative noise and boundless energy in pure exaltation. Check it out for yourself at

Finally, Jeff Young and Paul Pinto, members of New York ensemble thingNY, join us on their album release tour of their work entitled: Jeff Young and Paul Pinto, Patriots, Run for Public Office on a Platform of Swift and Righteous Immigration Reform, Lots of Jobs, and a Healthy Environment: An Opera by Paul Pinto and Jeffrey Young. Created in 2011 as a parody of contemporary politics and politicians, the piece focuses on issues of immigration and national identity. Expect a violin, metallophone, zither, cardboard boxes, political buttons, and shiny shoes. More at
