IUD @ the ICA: Peaches is coming to the Institute of Contemporary Art in July

 

The teaches of Peaches have been nothing short of works of art ever since we first caught Merrill Beth Nisker opening for Elastica on Lansdowne Street back in the fall of 2000. Now she’s coming to Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art as part of the Wavelengths series, throwing down a DJ set on July 25.

The appearance is presented by Converse and tickets are $20 for members and students and $25 for the general public.

Other Wavelengths events feature Dean Wareham and Quilt on July 11, Autre Ne Veut and Ava Luna on July 18, Mas Ysa and André Obin on August 8, and Hooray For Earth on August 22. For the full lineup, click here.

 

Here’s the Peaches event description from ica.org:

Since the release of her debut album in 2000, singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, DJ, and outrageous performance artist Peaches has questioned and disrupted global perceptions and practices relating to gender, sexuality, and inclusivity.

Also, she rocks.

 
 

From her debut album The Teaches of Peaches to her shocking live performances to her widely lauded one-woman theater production Peaches Christ Superstar, Peaches has continually pushed herself to new, more provocative creative heights, blowing audiences’ minds wide open.

Along the way, she’s gained a huge following in the queer, art, feminist, and underground communities, and honed mad DJ skills, which she’ll show off at the ICA.

You know it.
