Issue Project Room Adds a Marc Ribot Soundwalk

by

I have very little idea what Saturday’s Sunday’s Issue Project Room Soundwalk-a-Thon is actually going to sound/be like, but I find it profoundly intriguing nonetheless: Twenty-odd curated strolls, wherein you either listen to ambient city noise or make some yourself, through various BK-centric enclaves with names like Gowan-us! A Crudrophonic Sound Event and Balloon Bassoon Promenade and We would like to run past all your walkers, opposite their direction, while screaming songs. Let us note that downtown guitar god Marc Ribot, well loved in these pages, is leading his own charge, the demurely titled Gowanus Soundwalk. These are all Saturday Sunday, BTW, so get on this now.
