Fresh off a great review in Ground Control Magazine, Bipolar Explorer return to El Taller in a twi-night doubleheader with a trio of opera singers. Yeah, you heard that right. The enormously talented Lucia Song, Roberto Esquivelzeta and Todd Carter open the evening at 7:30 with a program of "Opera in the Round" and at 9pm, BPX hit the stage with their minimalist indie rock ("taut, emotional, urgent and altogether haunting", according to GCM - thanks guys!). El Taller is a cool, funky little art gallery space that reminds us of the kind of gem of a venue one might find in SF's Mission District. We usually say come on down but in this case come on up. Indeed, calling all Upper West Siders - we're in your hood. Come for the Puccini, stay for the moody shoegaze...
