What I did on my winter vacation.
My welcoming remarks were very brief, since this show came with its own Master of Ceremonies in Bernard Meisler from Sensitive Skin magazine. But Michael Zelner was there to photograph it nonetheless. :)
While you're looking, admire the portion of the amazing proscenium arch you can see to the right of me. It's made entirely out of backlit 35 mm slides. It was a wonderful backdrop for the performances. Thanks to Michael Zelner for the photo!
Amar, Tim, and I will be performing at the Watermelon Sugar party #841, this Saturday night at 8:30. It's officially known as a "noise series" curated by Nice Ass Records and hosted by KUSF's Bryan Chandler in his home in Potrero Hill.
Here's our set list, which will be the same one that we played at the In the Flow festival:
Small Chinese Gong
One Should Never
The Animal Trade in Canada
Ode to Steengo
Emir Scamp Budge
Seemed to Be Divided in Twain
An Empty Rectangle
We will be sharing the bill with Sarah Elena Palmer and the Shortwave Surfers. You can find us at 238 Missouri Street near 18th Street in San Francisco, and you should BYOB.
Photographed by Tom on a Salton Sea "beach", made up of luminous white salt deposits and the moldering bones of thousands of fish, washed up in layers as the Sea became too salty for them. It is a surreal, eerie experience to walk on the spongy, powdery, crunchy surface. Environmental disaster up close.
