Description

The Club Foot Orchestra is a music ensemble founded in 1983 by Richard Marriott, former Montalvo Lucas Artists Residency Program resident. After a brief career playing dramatic, complex music in San Francisco clubs, they became known for their equally dramatic and complex scores for classic silent movies. The ensemble got its name from a performance art nightclub called the “Club Foot,” which flourished in the Bayview district of San Francisco. Marriott, who lived upstairs, formed a house band that came to be called the “Club Foot Orchestra.”

The ensemble will open with accompaniment to a classic Felix short — Felix the Cat Woos Whoopee — and then perform to Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic, Metropolis.
