BUNDLE UP THIS FALL AND WINTER!

posted October 31st, 2013

When braving the cooling winds, plunging temperatures and diminishing amounts of available light in the outer-world, you know you gots to layer up, man! One can't expect to walk around the brisk alleys and off-roads in just jeans and a t-shirt for protection - if you want to keep sane and secure, you need all facets of a warm wardrobe. So how 'bout a fashionable (yet warm) dose of scarf, sweater, and jacket combo? Then top it off with a bit of fedora or knit... (read more)

HOP IN BILL CALLAHAN'S SMALL PLANE

posted October 30th, 2013

Bill Callahan's Dream River: still reigning o'er you, still dreaming! All on through the night, it's an album of frightening love, Calla-style, set to the silent movie of your forlorn, love-sick dreams. Dreaming in black and white, and on film, no less, is just the type of setting Bill's likely to haunt as it is; so congratulations, you've arrived at the doorstep of his genetic constitution. With trial there is always tribulation, but what about the third phase, come tomorrow? Will... (read more)

NEIL HAMBURGER TAKES HIS HIT $1 TOURING ACT WORLDWIDE

posted October 24th, 2013

Like the blessed Mother Teresa before him, Neil Hamburger just can't keep his charitable gestures to himself! Spreading a wealth of "gags" to those less privileged than he, The World's Funnyman cannot be contained by continental borders. Touring the USA constantly is a given, but why should the planet's Number One 3rd-World country get all the laffs? There are down-trodden in other parts of the world, across many oceans, who could all benefit from a gentle ribbing now and again. Neil has graciously performed his... (read more)

The DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2013!!!!!!!!!!

posted October 22nd, 2013

...AND NONE SHALL SURVIVE

Why the long face, o assembled? This much-awaited (blursh!) newsletter's just setting off, and already we got a problem? Hmm. Must be the dire header. You don't like the idea of scorched earth, with everyone and their baby deader than hell...and to be honest, we don't entirely cherish the image ourselves. Let's instead try to hear it more as a turn of phrase spoken from an ultimately happy place. A psyched place, even! Yes, Drag City is psyched, because in this... (read more)

BLUES CONTROL WORK THE WESTERN FRONTIER

posted October 22nd, 2013

How the west will be won, indeed - stetson bound (and gagged), once again in the back of a paddy wagon after a mild slip-up on their last heist (which poseur tipped off the sheriff?), Blues Control plot their escape, and tonal devastation, with sweaty fervor. Lehigh Valley be damned, these "Iron Pigs" gotta hustle! There's gold in the mines, we're told, and Blues Control as a duo are known to sniff out the metal. Further, this ain't no Potato Land - BC...

WANNA SEE WOT A NEW MIKE DONOVAN SONG LOOKS LIKE? WELL, DO-DO YA?

posted October 18th, 2013

Oh, WOT! Mike Donovan's debut solo album has just entered the capitalist, free-market place. While we fully anticipate you're already walking to the corner store to buy a copy with your Freemason emblazoned greenbacks, it's realistic to assume you'd like to get an impression of the record on your mobile device while you motor on down. Thus, we give you the video for "Do Do Ya?" - an intensive visual accompaniment to an already rollicking jam.

In this new life of... (read more)

EUROPEAN BRAIN PULSE BROUGHT TO YOU BY MASAKI BATOH

posted October 14th, 2013

Like an acupuncture needle delicately inserted into the core of your gourdtex, Masaki Batoh's Brain Pulse Music is both revealing and frightening at the same time. Unlocking the inner mysteries of universal mind, Brain Pulse Music sonically appropriates the alpha, delta and theta waves emanating from a human brain in the meditative state. With deft precision, Batoh directs these signals from a subject to the Brain Pulse Machine, then manipulates and amplifies them in front of an audience to mind-altering effect. For participants,...

A NEW VOICE EMERGES FROM THE SOURCE FAMILY: AQUARIANA

posted October 10th, 2013

It's not often a parent knowingly allows their child to join a cult outside the structure of their own family-style cult, but such is the case with Aquariana, who joined The Source Family as a teenager and went on to become one of Father Yod's 13 wives. Happily, it is clear that their spiritual path was where she was meant to be as well, first working her way around the The Source restaurant before landing into Father's loving arms. Aquariana was gifted in... (read more)
