The Everything Butt Art ostrich took some time out to jam with Wilco.
In the wake of our high from being part of TechCrunch Disrupt we’re announcing something that couldn’t be more different but is equally exciting. We’ll be calling the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) our home from June 24 – 26 as participants in the 2011 Solid Sound Festival – A Music and Arts Festival curated by WILCO.
The entrance to MASS MoCA.
I’m not sure there’s a better venue anywhere for this type of festival. If you’ve never been to MASS MoCA you should make plans immediately (there are still tickets available for Solid Sound). It is situated in the picturesque Berkshires - nestled in the mountains - in a converted factory campus. The Berkshires is ripe with art, music, film, and theater housing gems like Tanglewood, the Clark Art Institute, and the Williamstown Theater and Film Festivals. However, in my mind, MASS MoCA is its crown jewel.
What a venue! We’re lucky.
I was disappointed to miss last year’s festival because of a conflict but couldn’t have anticipated that this year’s attendance would be as a participant. We’ll be in a tent on the concert field. Based upon the success of the 2010 festival this year’s attendance is expected to be around 6,000 revelers. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to share Everything Butt Art with a crowd that has great appreciation for art and fun.
Oh, and wait until you see the surprise we have in store for the band!
Thank you to Joe Thompson, Sue Killam, and Wilco for inviting us to be a part of what promises to be an exceptional weekend.

This is going to be quite the weekend. Grab a ticket and join in the fun.
