NYC Activity

Friday highlights:

Helping out with Pieter's show installation at Miguel Abreu Gallery... or trying not to be a nuissance.

Seeing the John Miller, Mike Kelly, Tony Conrad, and Jutta Koether performance at Friedrich Petzel Gallery. I was stuck just outside the gallery for their first "set," due to the large crowd... but after most of the attendees left, they did another set of about 20 or 30 minutes. It was a lot of fun.

Dinner, and then later, drinks, with various wonderful friends.

Saturday highlights:

Recording session in the ass-end (even though near the top) of Long Island City with Brandon and Ken from Terrible Eagle (also current and ex- Indian Jewelry and Electric Set). Really enjoyable afternoon session on a cold day. Walked into a soundproofed room full of gear and we just went to town. I mostly focused on vocals (sung/chanted) - some controlled feedback - and some electronics. They promised to bring the results to Pieter's opening, tonight.

Low-key night, really... saving up energy for tonight... delicious bbq beef bee-bim bop at Snacky, with Pieter and Erin.

Off we go..........................
