The Red Room next door to Normal's book and music store is a small venue that features experimental, improv and jazz performances along with anything else out of the extraordinary.
The folks over at the Red Room are a pretty heady bunch, so much so that the avant garde music collective has its own philosophers’ union devoted to discussion of theoretical import in their explorations of the outer reaches of consciousness. Tonight, they go way past what most philosophers would consider the outer reaches, with Graham Harman, who is a charter member of the Speculative Realism movement. Harman is going to be asking “What philosophy can learn from H.P. Lovecraft.” In case you’ve forgotten, Lovecraft (pictured) is the author of such horrifying stories as the “Call of Cthulhu,” which is also being adapted by Baltimore’s own Chris LaMartina, into Call Girl of Cthulhu in the near future. So we could come to a real meeting of minds here. Or mind control by a prehistoric sea creature, you know. (Baynard Woods)
