Indie rock stalwarts Yo La Tengo will perform courtesy of FringeArts, although it won't be like their normal Philly appearances.
The Hoboken-formed band will play a score alongside "The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller," a live documentary about the legendary architect. Academy Award-nominated director Sam Green (check out his fabulous "The Weather Underground") narrates while Yo La Tengo plays along.The film itself focuses on the Dymaxion Chronofile, Fuller's project to document everything about his life.
For the architectually unaware, Fuller was an architect, author and futurist who invented the geodesic dome (think Epcot, or the Fuller-designed Montreal Biosphere). For the last 10 years of his life, he lived in Philadelphia, teaching at Penn, Swathmore, Haverford and Bryn Mawr.
It all goes down April 4 at 7 and 9 p.m. Tickets go on sale March 1 fringearts.com or by calling 215-413-1318215-413-1318.
