How I Survived Taylor Mac’s 24-Hour-Long Musical History Lesson

“Just shy of noon last Saturday, I showed up at St. Ann’s, in flats. The cavernous space on the Brooklyn waterfront was decked out for the occasion with hammocks, a medical tent and a kiosk offering snacks. I settled into my seat with a notebook and pen. What follows are my impressions of one of the longest — and greatest — feats ever to have unfolded on the American concert stage.”

Review: Taylor Mac’s 24-Hour Concert Was One of the Great Experiences of My Life

“I’ve slept on it, and I’m sure. “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music” is sublime.

…By about 10:30 a.m., donning a giant pair of butterfly wings, Mr. Mac mustered the fire to shred through a version of Sleater-Kinney’s “One Beat.” He stalked the St. Ann’s stage in his bare feet and in comically high heels. He sang through costume changes and through near-mishaps. (At one point, it looked as if the audience members carrying him from table to table were going to drop their load.) He never lost his sense of humor or the pathway to any of the punch lines in his 24 hours of stage patter or his knack for the dramatic and comedic power of holding a silence. Normally, he’s a star. This weekend he was a solar system.”
