LA CHESS BOXING: COFFEEGRAPH EDITION TONIGHT!
Coffeegraph has been pretty insane. From modern dance themed after coffee to a coffee sound piece to the latte art throwdown that took the space over last night for LA Coffee Club’s final event… we have had a lot to do.
So it’s only fitting that we close the show out (although we are hosting a closing party with LA Weekly tomorrow – RSVP and join that one for free!) by pounding out all of this extra energy we’ve built up with a battle of both brains and brawn. Four Think Tankers will square off in two bouts, with an additional fight by pro fighters, to knock each other out or survive in the ring and take the king. Info below:
Five rounds of chess. Five rounds of boxing. One winner, by checkmate or knockout.
Or decision, but still it’s still one of the wildest performance art pieces you have ever seen. Get hopped up on coffee and cheer on your favorite boxer (our intern is fighting one of our OG Think Tankers) as he tries to keep his 15 moves ahead in his head while his head gets pounded by fists.
Three bouts, with the first happening shortly after 8pm, will feature two matches pitting Think Tankers head to head, and one featuring LA Chess Boxing Club members. Boxing will happen in the center of the gallery, with chess projected onto a wall through a live video art piece for all to see.
