A Place Both Wonderful and Strange — A Benefit for the David Lynch Foundation

Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s short-lived foray into broadcast television, is without a doubt one of the more curious shows to ever receive a greenlight. But we don’t have to tell you that. You know all about Agent Dale Cooper, his love of coffee and pie, the late Laura Palmer, the Log Lady, and the series’ surreal mix of humor, suspense, and backward-talking dream-sequence dwarves. And you either liked the show or you considered leaving the U.S. for somewhere else that made sense. The electronic-duo of Russ Marshalek (a.k.a A Place Both Wonderful and Strange) and Lucy Swope (a.k.a. Ghost Cop) are among the former, and this week they roll into town to perform the soundtrack to the Twin Peaks film, Fire Walk With Me, in its entirety, albeit with a bit of a musical makeover. “I actually saw Twin Peaks for the first time with Lucy one Christmas, and it was addictive,” Marshalek says. “The re-soundtracking came about from a monthly DJ gig I used to have in my neighborhood, when one Halloween I drunkenly decided I should re-soundtrack the pilot to Twin Peaks. The next day I realized I had to figure out something pretty special in order to pull that off.” Eventually, Marshalek decided to tackle the film, which he actually likes better than the TV show. “It’s weird, it’s horrific, it’s hilarious, it’s very, very Lynch,” he says. Before you catch the show, head online and give Marshalek’s newest mixtape, Damn I Feel Like A Witch, a spin. It’s a WTF mashup up of “decaying, destroyed country” and electronica. —Chris Haire
