The Seth Bogart Show (2016)
Los Angeles, CA
Seth Bogart returns to Sled Island on the heels of a romping lo-fi pop record. Having wowed audiences in 2011 as Hunx and his Punx, the charismatic showman now stands on his own with a collection that warps pain with pleasure and sincerity with absurdity. Bogart has gained notoriety for his subversion of tropes in punk, ‘60s girl groups and pop art. Past guest curator Kathleen Hanna is a noted fan and her bratty turn on freaky single “Eating Makeup” somehow fits perfectly alongside tender laments about Bogart’s own fragility. With so many notches on his belt and a new creative stride, we’re expecting big things from him at the festival.
