Machine Dazzle: Treasure and Other Delights
After a sold-out concert in October 2022, and hot off the heels of his first museum survey exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, NYC legend Machine Dazzle returns to Joe's Pub with an evening of original songs. Joined on stage by music director Viva DeConcini and an all-queer band, Machine will share a selection of new tunes alongside of favorites from his debut album Treasure, a future psyche-sex-adelic synth-rock experience with stories inspired by Machine’s mother, their relationship, and the legacy she left to him.
Machine Dazzle has been dazzling stages via costumes, sets, and performance since his arrival in New York in 1994. Machine has collaborated with artists Julie Atlas Muz, Big Art Group, Justin Vivian Bond, Taylor Mac, Chris Tanner, Soomi Kim, Pig Iron Theater, Bombay Rickey, and has designed projects for Opera Philadelphia and Spiegleworld. In addition, he has held residencies at Tyler School of Art at Temple University, Moody Center for the Arts at University of Houston, Harvard University's Department Theater, Dance & Media Department, and Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ. Machine Dazzle’s work has been exhibited at Parsons School of Design in New York City and contributed to the creation of Diane Von Furstenburg and Cara Delevingne’s 2019 Met Gala camp looks. Machine's first solo museum survey Queer Maximalism x Machine Dazzle was presented by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City from September 2022- February 2023
