(the Miss Rockaway slumbers in the fog)

So I'm back. Sort of. The Mississippi has finally let me go and I have returned to dry land. I'm not quite NYC bound yet, as my room is occupied, but I will be making a quick appearance at the Miss Rockaway Armada's speaking engagement at P.S.1 on Saturday. It should be interesting, as a lot of members of the Armada should be present. We'll also be showing photos from the trip. Come say hi.



Saturday, September 30, 3:00 pm
P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center
22-25 Jackson Avenue at 46th Avenue
Long Island City, NY 11101

(Long Island City, NY – September 19, 2006) P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center is proud to present a slide show and discussion of the Miss Rockaway Armada, an artist-organized journey down the Mississippi River on a flotilla of hand-fabricated rafts.

Initiated by Greater New York 2005 artist SWOON, the Armada is a group of approximately 25 performers and artists from all over the country, including members of the Toyshop Collective, Visual Resistance, The Amateurs, The Floating Neutrinos, The Infernal Noise Brigade, The Madagascar Institute, and The Rude Mechanical Orchestra. In July, the group converged in Minneapolis to construct rafts and have since been journeying down the Mississippi, stopping in towns along the way to host musical performances, vaudeville variety-theater, and workshops focusing on arts and environmental issues.

For their presentation at P.S.1, Armada members will share photo-documentation and explain the project's influences and goals; the details of construction, engineering, and day to day life on the boat; and the unexpected encounters along the way.

*This event is free with museum admission.*

I'm sure most of you have caught the new TV On The Radio album that came out a while ago. Well it's just as good as one would hope. I really appreciate a band that is interesting, innovative, and offers staying power. I also like the idea of a mountain made out of cookies. Win win.
