|UPCOMING THINGS||NOTABLE JAMS|
|the news around here:|
It's 11-13-13. Just missed 11-12-13.
Last Sunday marked the first performance of thingNY's This takes place close by, a new musico-theatrical piece we've been putting together for upwards of a year. We do it twice this weekend at Incubator Arts and then take it back to the lab for some work before more performances around North America in Spring 2014. Rad on wheels.
Big news on another front: I've launched Gold Bolus Recordings, a previously theoretical label that released four albums of mine that's now putting out the music of awesome other folks. Joe White & Piad Guyvessant are up next, with lots more to come.
Why Lie?, still working hard on record #2, will be getting back to playing live shows in the coming months, with the first at Ange Noir on 12-5-13. And I'll be doing the second performance of a fun new project called Dancecasting at Bowery Poetry Club on 12-16-13. More on shows here.

Varispeed just pulled off another caper this past weekend in the form of Perfect Lives in the Catskills. We had an amazing two weeks at Mt Tremper Arts and look forward to next year in Pittsburgh! You can read a few things about that we did here.
Meanwhile, I've got some work with Dusan Tynek & his company at BAM Fischer in early September, a great show of stories with Woody Leslie at Dixon Place in late August, and much more thingNY new material in late August on through November. And did I mention this?...
Biggest development: you can go here to find a little EP I've put together called It Happened. This is material that resulted from a collaboration with Joanna Kotze (read more here). As a reminder, you can listen & download any time to Solo for Guitar, released last fall.
It's not too early to make plans to come to the Catskills for Varispeed's Perfect Lives & Adult Party Games (info here), and word on the street is that Varispeed's gonna be bringing some great stuff to Pittsburgh, my home town, in the coming year.

Big news this summer: Varispeed will be at Mt Tremper Arts in August presenting two jolly good programs, a new take on Art Jarvinen's Adult Party Games from the Leisure Planet and once again Robert Ashley's Perfect Lives. Very stoked to be bringing this to you fine people!
In the mean time, thingNY maintains a robust schedule, including a new piece we're writing, to be premiered in excerpts at Incubator Arts's monthly late night series, May-August. Dave & Woody's Chicken Slaughtering, LLC got off to a great public premiere last month, and we'll continue to drop nuggest of multi-media storytelling over here. And, serious this time, Why Lie? is making some real progress on our second record!
