This month's 'Disco brings you the aerial stylings of Adam Wier, Evan Holm's Image Immersion Machine and an all-star line up of musical acts that includes Daniel Higgs, Barn Owl, Danny Paul Grody and Portraits - all under one gothically vaulted roof

Grace Cathedral
1100 California Street
San Francisco, CA 94108

The Art
San Francisco artist and innovator Adam Wier of "Say My Name" fame returns to Grace Cathedral, once again upward bound and in buoyant reflection on what makes a space sacred. With bedsheets and helium balloons Wier hoists fort-like sanctuaries over the labyrinth reminding us that a sacred space can exist in something as tiny as the breath, as large as a cathedral, expansive as an astral vision or something as simple and comforting as immersion in a private and personal place.

Created just for Grace, Oakland artist Evan Holm presents the latest episode of his hi-tech meets low-tech Image Immersion Machine. Built for individual experience, the participant is plunged into a temporary reality through kaleidoscopically interwoven soundscapes and visuals, this time revolving around the narrator Karen McMullen's whispered words on the last moments of her mother's life.

The Music

Root Strata Records presents an epic mountain of a show to EpiscoDisco this month featuring the legendary freak folker Daniel Higgs (former frontman to post-punk Baltimore band Lungfish), the raw-picked acoustic sounds of Danny Paul Grody, hallucinatory electric hummings Barn Owl and the fresh-on-the-scene sounds of San Francisco's Portraits. This line-up kicks off at 7:30pm.

Paradise Now

Theology, music and art all share the aspiration to transcend the borders that language cannot. Paradise Now is a nondenominational curatorial duo that is exploring this commonality by showcasing artists who engage the awe-inspiring space within Grace Cathedral through multi-media installations and performing arts. Paradise Now is Eve Ekman and Jean Cooney.


Recently voted one of 7×7 Magazine's 250 Things To Do In San Francisco Before You Die and anointed "unusual fun" by the SF Chronicle, EpiscoDisco is a monthly event where community congregates to enjoy contemporary art installations, live performance, drinks and DJ'ed music at Grace Cathedral. EpiscoDisco is hosted on one Saturday of each month by Reverend Bertie Pearson and curatorial duo Paradise Now.
