Even though I HATE the titles on this record, I am really feeling the new Bon Iver record 22, A Million. This song feels apt today.
Also, Sunday December 11 is the 14th annual New York City Small Presses Night. I am co-curating the event with David Kirschenbaum. Presses being featured include:
I am especially excited about this event because Fuff Comix’s Jeffrey Lewis is doubling as the musical guest. His record The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane is one of the first records I remember finding in the slush box at the radio station where I was a dj. I played his song “The East River” on the radio I don’t know how many times. All these years later I am co-curating an event where he will be performing. 20 year old Jackie wouldn’t believe her luck. I am trying desperately to conjure up that sense of wonder in the world today. Please come!
