Shows

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017
Gold Bolus Recordings presents some new music from its artists.  I’m playing guitar in Reps, and also on the bill is Excarnation (Dave Kadden & Ryan Soper), Grout Pomade (members of Panoply Performance Lab & Geraldo Mercado), and a trio of Angela Morris, ellen o, and Sam Sowyrda. It’s at the re-opened Secret Project Robot at 1186 Broadway in Brooklyn. 8pm show, $7 cover.

July 21-23, 2017
thingNY will be celebrating our ten years of existence through creating a sound installation made up of sounds from our first ten years. This goes down at Harvestworks at 596 Broadway in SoHo, for three hours a night (4-7pm), and the installation is the kinda thing where you can play around with the sounds yourself. More info here.

July 23-27, 2017
Along with Abigail Levine, I’ll be realizing a Sol LeWitt wall drawing at the Fridman Gallery in SoHo. The performance/installation will be open for 5-6 hrs each day, with the assembly of the work taking 25 hrs total. More info coming soon!
