The Gay Agenda
By Edgar Casillas
TUNES: The debut album from Atlas Sound sees Deerhunter's lead singer Bradford Cox venturing out to experiment with a new, innovative solo sound. In Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, Cox's vocals are immersed in an ambient backdrop, often infused with tambourine jingles and electronic beats that create a feeling of muddled tranquility. The record hits stores February 19.
DRAMA: Taking a novel twist on the all too common trope of gay bashing, actor-playwright Victor Bumbalo's new drama, Questa, explores a gay teen's guilt and search for redemption after he finds himself responsible for the death of a straight young man who tormented him for his sexuality. Presented by New York City's off-off-Broadway Wings Theatre Company, the show's performances begin February 23, with opening night set for March 1. Tickets available online now.
