A Weird and Wonderful Night With Gary Wilson at the San Diego Art Institute

Recently, Gary Wilson and the Blind Dates performed at San Diego Art Institute's special event in Balboa Park, titled "Body/Space/Time". I gave some background to this special event here.

Though I didn't get to enjoy the work of Dynasty Handbag and Amy Alexander while I was backstage getting ready for our set, I heard glowing reviews from those who did. It felt especially inspiring to be on the same bill as these kind of artists, and I'm grateful for the San Diego Art Institute's commitment to bringing dynamic, unusual entertainment to Balboa Park.

Don't worry if you're one of  those who missed the floor-rolling, baby powder-covered set of classic Wilson weirdo hits -- videographer/photographers David Robles, Nick Lane, Galina Betker, and Jayden Fullerton were on the scene, documenting the proceedings for posterity. 

 

 

Enjoy the video and photos here, and I will be posting several more in the near future. As always, feel free to check out my Gary Wilson page, which I update often with photos and video from our Blind Date adventures.
