- Event Details
Boyd Rice may well be the only person alive who's been on a first name basis with both Charlie Manson and Marilyn Manson. His career has spanned more than three decades, during which time he has remained at the epicenter of culture and controversy. Rice first came to prominence in the '70s as one of the pioneers of the industrial music, gaining a reputation for live shows that were deemed the most abrasive, minimalist, and loudest concerts ever staged (his shows regularly clocked in at 130 decibels -- about a dozen louder than your average jet plane taking off). As early as 1980, he was already hailed as the Godfather of Noise Music. Since then, Rice has extended his creative pursuits to numerous fields, even lecturing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology despite being a high school dropout. Six years in the making and clocking in a nearly four hours(!), ICONOCLAST is filmmaker Larry Wessel's in-depth, kaleidoscopic examination of the life, career, and obsessions of this perpetually fascinating, often disturbing, and uniquely American artist. Screens in three parts with short intermissions between each section.
