Mark Golamco: Ghostlight

December 18, 2015 12:00 am - December 20, 2015 6:00 pm

Event Navigation

Mark Golamco founded and hosted a monthly performance cabaret called Ghostlight at the infamous (and now shuttered) Cafe Dancer bar in New York City. Ghostlight is an eclectic night of performance featuring exceptional artists and DJs. Each night is grounded by an intimate solo performance by Golamco self-accompanied on the viola.

Ghostlight has now become a nomadic series, recently staged aboard the steamboat SS Lilac on the Hudson River and at Judson Memorial Church in NYC. Mark is thrilled to bring this performance series to HRLA. He will be joined by musical guests Michael Gerald Bauer, Oscar Santos and DJ Earthen Oxytocin. The performance will also include some installation magic by Felisa Funes from Of The Flowers and Travis D of Project Rage Queen. Special guest appearance on Saturday night by Gorgeous Vermillion and Beast Nest featuring Alexander Brown and John Brumley.

These artists will be charging the space with energy before and during the performances through art making, installation and elemental ritual. The public is invited to see the remnants of these occurrences as well as impromptu performances during open gallery hours.
