SEE TO BELIEVE YOU HEAR THE NOISE INSIDE BATOH'S HEAD

posted May 31st, 2012

It's finally upon us, heads! Masaki Batoh is taking his brain and its machine on the road. The first jaunt, before an eventual trip to the new lands of the Americas, occurs in Europe. It's a mini-tour, perhaps, but it's perfect for the considerable amount of collective consciousness it takes to perform such material as that found on Batoh's Brain Pulse Music, or the improvised mental sets he's sure to flex live, with his Brain Pulse Music Machine. Yes, the BPM Machine... (read more)

POST MEMORIAL GLOBAL SHARK CAGE TOUR

posted May 29th, 2012

We had a swimmingly awesome holiday weekend, didn't you? Ah, the mammories we come to hold dear, post-mammorial day. This year's holiday weekend was particularly bacterial in the way stagnant swimming-hole water can be inner ear; it marked the beginning of Papa M's return to the stage! Yep, across the salty pond of the real world (as opposed to that in the fjords of your swimsuit), Papa M converged infectiously on the crowd at Crane Lane Theatre in Cork to kick off his first...

THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER MAY 2012

posted May 25th, 2012

WORD ONE

Ah...Drag City comes alive again in the words of a fresh new newsletter! But even though life is beginning anew here, and even though life is long, and even though life is often too long for some of us (we’re looking at you Rolling Stones! And thank you Sonic Youth!), frankly, we don’t have time to waste on niceties, felicitations, another word here. So we won’t beat around the bush with fancy languages. Let’s try it this way: we want you to... (read more)

WE KNOW WORLD - you have an opinion on digital music, we have the emails from many of your residents to prove it. BUT KNOW WORLD - Drag City don't hate on digital man, we sell mp3s on our website!

A GAELIC OLD TIME IN LONDON TOWN

posted May 22nd, 2012

Ach, those people of the nairth! They have their own way of living and their own sense of the time, the Scots do! And we're not just talking Hebridian sheep-farmers who stubbornly refuse to leave their now-deserted island homes either! Well, not entirely. We might be referring to them a little bit no matter which direction we turn in bonnie Scotland - because today, we're talking about the great Gaelic tradition in Scotland - and the Gaels are a Scottish people spread far and wide...

SIX ORGANS IN ASCENT

posted May 16th, 2012

For all of us earthbound creatures, the firmament with its revolutions of planets and stars, determining the spread of tides and the length of days and the drift of the calendar and the juxtaposition of our very personalities (astrology-wise, we're speaking) is a marvelous muse to have. Hanging over us day in and out, framed in the unattainable and yet somehow soul-linked to our own humble path across the face of this planet. There's an element of the uncanny to all of this and the... (read more)

YOU SEE I SEE A DARKNESS VID?

posted May 10th, 2012

I see a new Bonny risin'! Coming this summer is an EP of new versions of Bonny classics from years gone by - fresh-minted by his constant companions of late, Ben Boye, Van Campbell, Emmett Kelly, Danny Kiely and Angel Olson. Before you roll your eyes, and ask "Greatest Palace Music too?" get an eye-full of the rolling going on in the Ben Berman-directed video, which premiered on the good ol' New York Times (remember them?) and is now...
