The Lisps are extraordinary under any circumstances, but they have been exploring some new territory, and we are lucky they are bringing it to MASS MoCA in North Adams on Saturday, April 27 at 8 PM. It’s a rock musical.
Futurity is a sci-fi love story set inside a history lesson. This original indie-rock musical by the Lisps, a Brooklyn-based assemblage of 21st-century theater-loving indie rockers, borders the literary and borrows liberally from vaudeville, anti-folk, science fiction, and Americana. Broadway World advises, “Leave your presumptions about musical theater at the door. Born of the art world and the indie rock scene, the show is part performance art, part rock concert and totally defies conventional labels.”
