7pm Film screening of Triple Trouble
9pm Music starts

TRIPLE TROUBLE, the long awaited first feature film from The Residents, San Francisco’s premier underground band since 1972, is now available for screenings at festivals, theaters and clubs throughout the world.

Triple Trouble tells the story of Junior Rose, a former priest who lost faith in the church and became a plumber. Accompanied by Cherry, an AI enhanced drone, the plumber slowly gathers evidence to support a bizarre theory: a fungus plugging sinks all over the city is a threat to humanity. Emotionally isolated after a divorce and the death of this mother, the former priest’s obsession swells at an alarming rate as his world slowly spirals out of control. 

Long considered to be one of the originators of music videos, The Residents’ reputation also extends into experimental music, performance art, soundtrack music and episodic internet series. Having somehow survived for fifty years, the group is thrilled to finally produce its first feature film…

Constantly defying classification, THE RESIDENTS have been regarded as icons in the world of experimental music for almost fifty years. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video, with their videos included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Their lengthy career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored numerous films and TV series as well as several projects for MTV. In addition, the group is also thriving in the world of digital media having released ten DVDs, and two internet series.
Currently, in collaboration with noted video artist, John Sanborn, The Residents are creating a major multimedia event to be performed at the Museum of Modern Art on Jan 24 & 25, 2020. In addition, based on the recently discovered recordings of Alvin Snow, aka Dyin’ Dog, the group is completing their 49th studio album, METAL, MEAT & BONE. Then, in the spring, The Residents will embark on another world tour, again featuring the music of Alvin Snow while also revisiting Duck Stab, one of the band’s most popular albums.

Alternately seen as a rock band, an arts collective and a spirit, THE RESIDENTS have been regarded as icons in the world of experimental music for over forty years. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video. Their early videos are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and their Freak Show CD-ROM was featured in MOMA’s “Looking at Music 3.0” exhibition. Their four decade long career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored numerous films and TV series as well as several projects for MTV. In addition, the group is also thriving in the world of digital media having released ten DVDs, and two internet series.

The group celebrated its 40th anniversary with a trilogy of tours – The Talking Light, Wonder of Weird and Shadowland – performing as Randy, Chuck & Bob, the World’s Greatest Residents Cover Band, an unexpected morphing into a power trio, gleefully plundering their vast catalog of music to the delight to their fans. Not content to rest upon their justly lauded laurels, the group reformed as THE REAL(?) RESIDENTS, a four piece combo that celebrated its debut at the prestigious Blue Note jazz club in Tokyo in early 2017. The show continues with a European tour in the fall and plans for a US tour in the spring of 2018.
