CLA Camarades

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

6:00pm

The UCLA Camarades is a versatile chamber music ensemble ranging from duos to a full-string orchestra comprising the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music’s acclaimed string faculty and its most gifted students. Since its inception in 2009, Camarades ensembles have performed at numerous chamber music series and venues of Los Angeles, including previous performances here at LACMA’s Sundays Live, Trinity Lutheran Church in Manhattan Beach, the Dilijan Chamber Music Series at the Herbert Zipper Concert Hall, the Music Guild, and as featured guests at the Los Angeles Philanthropic Committee for the Arts’ annual gala at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Residencies at two international festivals in the summer of 2012 in Yerevan, Armenia, and in Tuscany, Italy, made for a particularly enriching experience. A quartet recently formed within the UCLA Camarades program, the LAMI Quartet, was a finalist in the Chesapeake Chamber Competition in 2011.

Get Mean

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

The unofficial fourth installment in Tony Anthony’s “Stranger” spaghetti western series, Get Mean (1975) is one of the more bizarre and inventive examples of this pliable, ambidextrous genre in its waning days. Anthony and Italian director Ferdinando Baldi (the influential Django, Prepare a Coffin with Terence Hill) had previously collaborated on the pasta-delic Blindman (1971). Borderline psychedelic, not to mention historically fakakta, Get Mean’s plot (Anthony’s wise-ass gunslinger is hired by gypsies in late 19th century Wisconsin to return a deposed Spanish princess to her desert kingdom) is a mere pretext to unleash a barrage of highly entertaining explosions, high-camp gay villains, laughing skeletons, gypsy soothsayers with supernatural mirror-balls, Barbarian hordes vs. Moorish hordes, gang-rape by angry harridans, and a hero who turns black and is almost roasted like a pig. —Howard Berger

Dir. Ferdinando Baldi, 1975, DCP, 84 min.
