URANUS is a performance for body and voice. Love and sex, need and fear, spirit and fluid. Entertains the audience with song and performance, then sets them a challenge they weren’t expecting.
'URANUS, performed by Moreno Solinas [...] is striking, beautiful and frankly bizarre and by far the highlight of the night. [...] Playfully, with equal intensity and precision, Solinas shifts between the beautiful, the erotic, and the rude. [...] The interaction and nudity in such close proximity might be considered excessively challenging and invasive, but executed with such control and strength it was nothing short of astonishing.' (Rohanne Udall, Exeunt Magazine)
'URANUS is both witty and challenging and performed with utter confidence' (Howard Loxton, the British Theatre Guide)
'URANUS is an exercise in control, constructed so that Solinas draws the focus of the audience’s gaze across his body precisely, transforming the scale at which we watch. [...] Solinas controls our journey across a thin edge between amusement, beauty, discomfort, distaste and disgust.' (Alice Mackenzie, Bellyflop Mag)
A nude street protest was held a few days before the ban on public nudity was to take effect (February 1st).
On the steps of San Francisco's City Hall, local nudist gathered to express their disapproval.
Lead by local activist Mercedes and Gypsy Taub.

WARNING! ACHTUNG!! May contain traces of nuts!
The Gooch Palms are a fun duo and they play what they call "Shit Pop"! Leroy is on vocals and guitar, while Kat bangs a racket on some drums, while occasionally stroking her theremin. By the way, that is not a euphemism! Clever pop hooks and short fast songs, just the way I love 'em. Just two members, it’s a girlfriend-boyfriend duo that play scuzzy, fuzzy garage-rock. It’s simple, loud, brash and bold, taking big chunks of 50s rock’n’roll, mixed with equal portions of 60s-style lo-fi punk. I originally saw them at the BOOGIE Festival and they were the best new band they I saw play! They recently played at BigSound and raised a few eyebrows. They come all the way from Newcastle, where they run a second hand clothes store. If they are coming to your town, check 'em out because I reckon, THEY WILL BLOW YOU AWAY!
