Author Reading and Live Music

Ready to kick off 2020 with the inimitable Dr Madd Vibe AKA Angelo Moore (front man of Fishbone)?  Coupled with his forays into image and ink, this interdisciplinary live experience with Angelo Moore is not-to-be missed!

Born with super-star powers, Angelo Moore has been called “a one-man force of energy”. Join him on Saturday Feb 15 for a FREE author reading and intimate concert with rare insights into Moore’s work in film and comics. As the lead vocalist and saxophonist of the legendary band Fishbone, Moore is an icon who has ferociously fused punk rock, funk, ska-reggae, gospel and rock & roll. Working in the vein of Louis Armstrong, Frank Zappa, James Brown, Dali and Jean Michel Basquiat, Moore’s alter ego Dr Madd Vibe mixes live big band sound with conscious lyrics. Poetry, performance art, and live music are all in the mix, as the Dr takes his audience on a thrilling ride through an auditory amusement park.
