First programming I’ve gotten to put together since moving to Philadelphia! Hearers’ Duo is my friend and roommate Dan Finn on electric piano and myself on drums. Quinn (di—es—-can-ic-ul-ar—es) will be speaking in multiple voices via piano and amplifier. Van Sutra features Philly percussion guru Julius Masri and ex-Don Caballero/Storm & Stress guitarist George Draguns, and they’ll be laying out massive free-rock collages. Philly friends, see you there!
it seems that often, when we speak about performance, we’re generally speaking about (or at least we think we’re speaking about) some exhibition in the Real (Real-time and Real-space) of some performer’s physicality. this is, apparently, the difference between a performance and a recording: in…
gosh i was wondering if anyone was gonna criticize how chivalrous we’ve been with the phrase “woman & children” surrounding gaza these days.
Yo, I sense the shit out of that. all the OOO dudes and accelerationists on Facebook are so fuckin pumped about snow piercer and I’m just like “calm down”. And then Mckenzie Wark is just like “whatever I’m watching edge of tomorrow”.

So our distro site is here for the physical pickup action. = )
Our HQ Metropolarity.net needs a lot of love, but since AMC planning took over my life, and I work on computers for $$$, I’m taking a summer vacay from spending any time massaging relevant blog content (although there’s so much planned!). It IS good for keeping up on our events though.
However… the insidious FBook is still the easiest place to keep up on our events, and a lot of our network’s events in Philly and the surrounding area. So peep us there if you really wanna keep up on what we’re doing, where we’re going. (Like actually just check the page from time to time, cause you know how FB likes to manipulate what information shows up for who and when.)
Oh AND WE HAVE AN OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TILL JULY 31st DON’T BE SHY NOW PRETTY PLEASE PRETTY PRETTY
This stuff is all wonderful and yes we’ll all be at RIPE! Rasheedah, Alex, & Maggie Eighteen will be on a panel I’m curating/moderating about personal takes on sci-fi/genre/fantastical worlds, along with O Horvath, Inés Estrada, and Alabaster—. xoxoxoxo
