The Gay Agenda
By Edgar Casillas
TUNES: Kaki King (above) sure knows how to manipulate a guitar -- and if you don't believe us, check out this ridiculously impressive video for her song "Playing with Pink Noise." The multi-talented lesbian musician has contributed to Tegan and Sara's The Con and the Foo Fighters' Grammy-winnning Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, and now King -- who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work on the score for Sean Penn's Into the Wild -- is releasing her fourth album, Dreaming of Revenge, a tight collection of dizzying instrumentals and meditative vocal tracks. For a sample, head over to her MySpace page and check out the haunting key track "Pull Me Out Alive."
EXHIBIT: Fresh from an artistic journey that took him to Madagascar, in which his still-life art evolved into breathing memories, Joseph Radoccia will be displaying his work at the Leslie Lohman Gallery. Radoccia's exhibit Art, Actually! Painting, Drawing, Sculpture will premiere with an opening reception on March 11, 6-8 pm, and will run until April 19th, at 26 Wooster Street in New York City.
