If you’ve never seen one of Alexis Gideon’s Video Musics projects, they’re wild—hip-hop animated operas that also function as performance art, influenced by mythology and literature. The former Portlander’s current project is Princess, the reunion of a pop duo Gideon formed with Michael O’Neill (of JD Samson and MEN), and tonight they perform Out There, a “live narrative video album.” Featuring an electronic music soundtrack that ranges from dance-friendly to jagged goth, Princess tells a science-fiction story about the parallels between misogyny and dystopia, as the duo leaves Earth in search of a world that recognizes the power of the divine feminine. If that sounds strange, rest assured it will be, in the most intriguing possible way.
