Parts & Labor, Big Bear, Gowns, Alex Delivery
Venue: Luna Lounge, 361 Metropolitan Ave, Williamsburg
Date: Friday, April 6
What To Expect Based Solely on the Flier: Spiritual healing, Christian Scientist lice-treatment, tag-team armpit smelling.
Artist: Sto, co-founder of Cinders Gallery in Williamsburg (where, yes, YACHT is playing on April 14).
Concept: “I’ve been working on a series of paintings and drawings exploring faith healers, snake handlers, telepathic powers, and possession,” Sto e-mails. “I love the look on people’s faces when they are in that state of being possessed, the idea of believing in something so intensely! With music, I feel that a kind of possession can happen to the performer and to the audience.”
How Sto ended up doing this poster: “I’ve known BJ [Warshaw] and Dan [Friel] from Parts and Labor for awhile now, they played one of their first shows several years ago at an art show i was having in this garage space I was living in Greenpoint. . . I had Dan play a solo set of music at the opening of my most recent solo show of paintings at Cinders. I also drew the cover for the first record they released on their label Cardboard Records and another one [below] for one of my favorite Brooklyn bands Pterodactyl.”
Parts & Labor, “A Great Divide”
Big Bear, “Track 01”
SOTC’s sick of hunting around for fliers on FoxSpace, getting GOATSE’d, and therefore giving up. So make life easier and send your fliers, posters, jpgs to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
