Cavanaugh (Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti) at Hotel Congress
December 12, 2015 @ 10:00 pm
In a new urban development on the far west side of Detroit, Florida, it’s mandated by a 5 to 4 city council vote that a new housing structure be erected that has both luxury condominium units available for private ownership and section 7 housing in the same building. Via separate entrances the Cavanaugh building services two very different populations. And though the lifestyles of the residents vary, each unit relies on the same system of pipes and wiring and are serviced by the same crew. Mike and Dave have a combined 14 years of experience in Cavanaugh maintenance. They usually work drunk, mumbling greetings to the residents, soaking up all the disdain that the higher and lower income inhabitants have for each other. They talk shit to each other all day. Complaining about their home lives, spinning passive aggressive tales where they pretend to be angrier, stronger, more expressive men.
Though Serengeti and Open Mike Eagle have known each other for many years and
went to Southern Illinois University together, Cavanaugh is the first group that the two
have collaborated on and it’s the first project Mike has produced in its entirety. Time and
Materials features P.O.S., Hemlock Ernst, and Busdriver.
