The Chairman Dances head up opening of Unnatural Behaviour exhibit at Pterodactyl Gallery
Opening this Friday at Port Richmond’s Pterodactyl Gallery, the Unnatural Behaviour exhibit is a month-long celebration of up-and-coming Philadelphia artists – illustrators Jenn Hall and Luca Chiriani, painter Nicholas Stathopoulos and more – and Philly art-pop luminaries The Chairman Dances will headline the opening night concert. The band released its ambitious second LP Michael and the Prophetess earlier this year, blending literary allusions, modern classical motifs and pop songwriting (read Kate Bracaglia’s interview here); to coincide with the Pterodactyl opening, they released a music video for “The Words Came Out at Once,” the song that opens the LP in a progressive swell, building from airy and minimal to orchestral. The music video, produced by J. Randolph Brown and Steady State Productions, follows band members through black and white Old City with an alluring color overlay.
