ERIC DEJESUS (w/ Dragon Turtle)
We Have Heaven's Eric DeJesus will be reading excerpts from his new, We Wont Be Here Forever. It is 80 pages of magic realism, small typeface, bic pen drawings (with watercolour applied by Elizabeth Duby), hard cover, and a CD soundtrack by Minus Pilots (UK). For this event, Dragon Turtle will provide the musical backdrop.

The book is out on AMERICAN TYPEWRITER, the publishing wing of EASY SUBCULT.

Eric says:
The next project is a book by JONATHAN VANCE of MOSS ICON fame. RAW POGO boxsets too.
Look here:

FURSAXA (w/ Helena Espvall)
"Fursaxa boasts a fan base with the likes of Bardo Pond, Acid Mothers Temple and Thurston Moore, who released a record by her on his Ecstatic Peace! imprint. A previous member of the band UN, Burke is now one of the epicentres and key collaborators of the North American free-folk movement, along with such luminaries as Jack Rose, Charalambides, Ben Chasny and the Jewelled Antler Collective. With her hypnotic, echo-y churchbell chanting, Burke possesses a power-filled vocal sound that harkens back not only to those other polar queens of disaffected freakout psychedelia Nico and Barbara Manning, but she is also akin to and inspired by Hildegard von Bingen, the 12th-century Benedictine mystical abbess. With the low drone of chord organ and Farfisa, detuned ringing guitar, and endlessly looped, multiply-tracked vocals applied with heaps of delay, Fursaxa sounds like a tripped-out medievalist perched upon a poppy petal. Burke has an alchemical knack for turning folk into lo-fi, and then into sheer psych and back again, but more importantly, her music is pure humming narcosis." -ATP
"...rank(s) right up there with Joelle Leandre and Eugene Chadbourne, as far as wild passionate and extremely diverse playing goes. Spooky, dark, dissonant, often psychedelic. -Mufaor, KZSU

ZILLIONS (Rosali Middleman)
New project by Rosali Middleman of Blood Like Mine ("Down home experimental swamp-a-delic americana to tickle your eardrum." says Fire Museum.)
