The Northampton Arts Council presents Transperformance 29: Lookstock

We will celebrate peace, love and music while raising funds for arts enrichment programs in the Northampton Public Schools. Your favorite local acts will take the Pines Theater stage to perform 10 minutes of material from performers who graced the Woodstock stage 50 years ago. Groups can “transperform” anyone from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Ravi Shankar to Jefferson Airplane to the Who. Come celebrate 29 years of bringing our community members together to support music and the arts.

Each year in August the Northampton Arts Council and the Parent Teacher Organizations of Northampton’s public school system join forces to raise funds for arts enrichment in the schools and for the ArtsEZ grant program. Once again it’s time to celebrate our community and the arts with Transperformance 29: Lookstock, THE end-of-the-summer music festival at Pines Theater-Look Park. The original concept for Transperformance was for local bands to take on a persona of another established nationally recognized act and perform or “Transperform” their bands’ style. The acts that are chosen are done thematically, such as Transperformance 22 “Food Groups” (Heather Maloney as Amy Winehouse) or Transperformance 17 “Color By Numbers” (Primate Fiasco as Pink Floyd) or Transperformance 23 “Beyond Bob” (Rusty Belle as Bob Dylan). Over the years Transperformance has evolved and tribute style performances have become acceptable if not the norm.

Lineup: TBA
