la superette 2006

we are scheduled to perform at this year's la superette to be held at eyebeam in chelsea. kudos to our friends kyle+tali of lovid, and the rest of the la superette crew!

december 9, 2006 - 12 to 10pm

here's a snippet from the press release:

"LA SUPERETTE is conceived and organized as a place for artists to meet and collaborate on a specific project. A catalog zine is published, which distributes contact information of all participating artists, a web catalog is hosted at WWW.LASUPERETTE.ORG, and a video catalog is produced and screened at the event. LA SUPERETTE 2005 included more than 100 artists and attracted thousands of visitors and shoppers.

DIY merchandise has been a part of the music world for years through micro labels and zine culture. Today's proliferation of interdisciplinary artists and multi-media collectives is concomitant with an increase of visual artists producing merchandise and multiples. Many of these artists act as cultural hackers, re-appropriating history, media, science, and other elements of contemporary life for their work. They share a growing need to reconnect and to distribute, so they make t-shirts that look like their paintings or web sites, join a knitting circle in Brooklyn to rediscover craft, or paint
elaborate packaging for their self-recorded albums. With an emphasis on the handmade, homemade, and loved, these pursuits help modulate a digitally reproducible society and give an alternative to mainstream standards."

snaps from transmissions

these are some pictures from our gig at the pussycat lounge last september 30. it was a great night! nick played drums, and i (stanley) played all the electronic parts (including some guitar footwork!).

our set was around 20 minutes, and we were able to capture it live on minidisc. we'll probably upload a few minutes of it here.
