this weekend i will be in NYC at the WFMU record
fair hopefully buying all the minimal synth and
DIY 7"s before all the hawks come in (dealer
badge means 7am entry!)..
on Friday after FMU i am djing in NYC at 12:30
am as part of CMJ, so come on down and chill out.
its free... see flyer below.
i will then stay awake until 7am and go back to
the record fair to grab more stuff before i jump
on a plane in the afternoon to head over to
Portland for the ITALIANS DO IT BETTER party.
We try to throw parties all over the USA whenever
we have a record to promote. This time we are promoting
a few records: BEATBOX on vinyl (with bonus 7"!) and
a new addition to the Italians family: Nite Jewel from
Los Angeles, CA. Also playing is Farah (her first Portland
gig ever!) When she is there she will hit the studio
with Johnny to work on some new tracks. Very busy
weekend for the Italians family. I'll be djing the gig
and the afterparty as well. The afterparty will be at
the "storefront". if you are from Portland you know
this place. Last time i played there it was pretty
insane. I love that place!
and FINALLY, regarding the ITALIANS gig. We will be
selling a gig -only PINK VINYL version of BEATBOX.
But have no fear, if there are any left i will lug them
over to NJ for mailorder!
Also at the party we will be giving away a new Glass
Candy cd called DEEP GEMS, which is a collection of
singles, b sides, and rarities. in between touring like
crazy, glass candy has been in the studio every possible
moment working on a new lp for 2009. in the meantime,
