Inspired by the loss of very close friends, "Soul Song Paralytic: grief, death and other favorites" was a musical-visual collaboration exploring grief that brought together the musician Dup Crosson (Saint Solitude) and the visual artist Dara Lorenzo of an evening of art and catharsis. Drawing from and sublimating personal losses into a complete musical album and visual exhibit, the event created a shared public space where mourning and all its facets can be on display with pride. The event connected with those in mourning and encouraged similar creative means of expressing the brutal emotional experiences found in loss. Alongside the debut of Dara's exhibit, Saint Solitude performed as a band for the first time in 5 years, playing the newly released album in its entirety.
