LOLA 2007 World Tour of Legendary Brian Eno's 77 Million Paintings

By Anne Laszlo Howard

Legendary Brian Eno, Canadian Premiere of 77 Million Paintings. Brooklyn’s Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Final Fantasy, Constantines, Prefuse 73, and Akron/Family are among the artists to perform Sept 20-23.

LONDON, ONTARIO (RUSHPRNEWS) - London Ontario Live Arts Festival (LOLA) taking place September 20-23 is promising to transform downtown London into a massive public art gallery and concert space. With legendary artist Brian Eno displaying his artwork, see Eno’s generative art exhibition 77 Millions Painting. Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Final Fantasy, Constantines, Prefuse 73, and Akron/Family are among the artists who will play free shows as part of this year’s LOLA Festival.

The festival takes place from September 20-23 at various venues across London, Ontario, though not all shows are free. The rest of the LOLA lineup includes Holy Fuck, the Acorn, Videohippos, Basia Bulat, Carolyn Mark, Hylozoists, Wooden Stars, and Sandro Perri (aka Polmo Polpo), and others from the alternative music and art scene. LOLA is setting the stage for an event with great artistic impact to the community with events taking place in popular venues. Artists positioned at high visibility locations and giant projections will adorn select high-rise buildings and wall spaces throughout the core area. Major concert events will take place in the daytime and evenings, starting with Eno’s 77 Million Painting September 20 and concluding with The Constantines at Victoria Park on Sunday, September 23rd.

Special guest, dance Troup EvoLucidance from Quebec will perform its premiere of Roots, a contemporary dance blending the element of classical dance with a middle-eastern flavor.

The impact of immense projections, interactive drama, acclaimed musical and dance performances, and the involvement of major organizations from around the country, including extensive municipal support will combine to create a truly unique event of consequence.
