I’m kind of annoyed I missed the sold out Will Wright lecture last night. I had tickets and just totally forgot about it. But there’s a lot happening this weekend in my little sphere of interest, so maybe it’s good that I conserved some “going out energy.”
Friday, February 19
- Triple Canopy at the New Museum
- Flux Factory opening at their new space in LIC
- Bushwick galleries stay open late
Saturday, February 20
- A benefit party for the new home of Triple Canopy, Light Industry, and The Public School
- Homestead exhibition
- PechaKucha #9 with Zach Lieberman’s EyeWriter in the line-up
Sunday, February 21
- Sculpture Space: Utica’s Utopia (My friend Heather did a residency in Utica and there’s a video being screened about it.)
- The Phenomenal Handclap band is playing a free show at Brooklyn Bowl, which I’ll probably miss, but damn $2 Brooklyn lager!
And of course there are a few workshops with space left at Trade School including “Caviar: Demystified,” “Collecting amidst disaster” and “Accidental Pornographies: Developing Underground Health Magazines and Stealth Distribution Models.”
Formerly known as Charlie Everywhere, from Saratoga Springs. I’m kind of curious who their label was worried about getting sued by.
Guitarist Josh Carter explained that the band made the change because they have signed a record deal with British label BBE, and that the label was concerned that the name Charlie Everywhere could see to trademark issues. Carter wasn’t sure why, but said it was better to be safe, especially when the band is planning the release of their already recorded album and an international summer tour.
