When Kiev kicks off Segerstrom Center's latest installment of its popular Indie Band Series on May 24 in Samueli Theater, expect a whole new dimension to their music making -- 3D. Orange County's own Kiev, which took home Best Indie Band at the 2011 OC Music Awards, will start the evening before turning it over to Menomena. During their performance, there will be a custom, stereoscopic 3D projection show.
This new dimension to the musical performance is a collaboration between Kiev and the renowned visual events producer Martin Brinkerhoff Associates, which uses images inspired by film animation and analogue videos to combines primitive visual techniques with modern 3D technologies. Each guest will be given 3-D glasses to witness the blend of old and new images that will make the show an even better sensory experience.
To learn more about the upcoming performance and the local band, check out Greer's OC TV for when she sat down with the band members this weekend.
Tickets for Menomena and Kiev are on sale now, $20 for general admission on the main floor, which is standing-room only, and $40 for the VIP loft. Tickets are available online at SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling 714.556.2787.
Kiev consists of band members Andy Stavas (sax and vocals, piano, keyboards), Brandon Corn (drums), Derek Poulsen (computers, bass), Alex Wright (vocals, piano, keyboards, guitar) and Robert Brinkerhoff (vocals, guitars).
