The night will open with a performance by Bob Baker's Marionettes followed by F’s improvisational noise performance. This all ages event will feature marionettes, colorful projections, and special surprises. Also at the theater will be a one-night-only exhibition and reception featuring artworks by the members of F inspired by Bob Baker's legacy. If you've never been to the Bob Baker’s Marionette Theater to see the amazing things they do, this is an incredible chance to see this historical Los Angeles landmark!
F is a Los Angeles art-rock supergroup whose motto is "Simplicity Through Noise" and who have developed a practice rooted in improvisational ensemble playing using electric guitars (played with rubber mallets and other extended as well as traditional techniques), percussion, and vintage synthesizers, in various combinations. F are Marnie Weber, Doug Harvey, Daniel Hawkins, and Kane Lafia.
12" LPs, CDs, and Cassettes are available for purchase at the event. In addition, beer and wine will be available for purchase at the bar.
Marnie Weber’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses performance, film, video, sculpture, collage, music and costuming. Weber’s early years were grounded in performance art, before moving into filmmaking and later large-scale installations, all the while continuing a practice of collage, creating limited edition records as an art form, and performing and recording music. www.marnieweber.com

THIS EVENT IS PART OF OUR SCHOOLHOUSE ROCKS PROGRAM!
"Schoolhouse Rocks!" is a collaboration program through the Bob Baker Marionette Theater that supports field trips down to our historic theater. A portion of proceeds from each ticket will help to support a bus full of students to rock and roll their way down to the theater for a special puppet show field trip.
You come to dance... we bring the puppets... and the kids get a show!
