Final Friday is the grande finale of LOUD & Clear.  April 27 will see the multimedia video and sound performance by students in MUS 452.  With a title of “Psychic Sasquatch and the UFO Connection” what can you expect save an evening of wild music and cosmic visuals?  Dr. Jackson 2Bears leads this band of merry, sonic experimenters. A must see (and hear) experience.  Free and open to the public.  North Bank Artists Gallery, 1005 Main St., in downtown Vancouver next to Kiggins Theatre.

Remember, Negativland’s Mark Hosler talks and screens his film “Illegal Art” from 5-6:30.  There will be a 30 minute intermission.  The musical performance begins at 7 and will run until 8 p.m.  I am sure there will be an after party to close the LOUD & Clear festival.  So, don’t miss it.
