The Shock of the New

Neon Renaissance wants to change the way Denverites hear music.

There's little danger of that when it comes to Scholz, whose current project is a three-part chamber symphony titled Lindo Est Carthago. Predictably, the moniker is fraught with meaning. The phrase, which translates to "Carthage must be destroyed," was used as a rallying cry by combatants in the Punic wars who wished to push aside the ruling order in the ancient Phoenician city in favor of the leaders of Rome. In other words, it's a complicated art-student way of saying "Out with the old, in with the new"--which neatly synopsizes the Neon Renaissance approach.

Neon Renaissance Festival. 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, May 23, Bug Performance and Media Art Center, 3654 Navajo Street, $7/$5 after 6 p.m., 477-5977.
