The Ace Hotel is this awesome and spectacular gothic venue, downtown Los Angeles, which leaves you totally speechless, especially when you enter the theater. It is so heavily decorated and sculpted, so cathedral-like that you may feel you have stepped inside the den of the phantom of the opera.Eight months ago, I saw Lykke Li there, and it was quite the perfect place to see her, except that my seat was so far from the stage and so high that I had almost vertigo.
On Wednesday April 1st, another perfect fit for the place will be celebrated: David Lynch and his music with performances by Duran Duran, Jim James, Karen O, Moby, Angelo Badalamenti, Chrysta Bell, Donovan, Julee Cruise, Kinny Landrum, Rob Mathes, Sky Ferreira, Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips, Tennis, Twin Peaks, Zola Jesus, and some special guests.
Angelo Badalamenti scored Lynch’s masterpieces ‘Blue Velvet’ and ‘Mulholland Drive’ as well as the Twin Peaks series, so you can expect a bit of this, plus many interpretations of Lynch’s own compositions by all the artists above, I am not entirely sure how this will work, but it sounds interesting. It is not totally cheap, tickets go from $45 to $1,000 – but apparently the cheap ones are all gone already or they are gonna be released later as the event has just been announced?
All proceeds benefit Lynch’s foundation, which brings Transcendental Meditation to at-risk populations suffering with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Beside an excellent seat, the VIP option will give you access to a private pre-concert event with David Lynch, and you will be served top shelf cocktails, crafted hors d’oeuvres, and given a limited edition concert poster designed by Shepard Fairey! Too bad I don’t have this kind of money to blow on a single night, because, let’s check out this lineup one more time,… it’s kind of great, right?
