TOO MUCH TO PROVE, TOO MUCH TO LOSE

"Maybe contemporary art should be more like casinos." - Richard Prince
So this coming weekend, Oct. 3-4, is going to be one big party up in Portland, Maine. With an art opening and late Black Label dance party on Friday, and then Japanther and Matt & Kim with the Black Label DJs again on Saturday. It's early October, Maine is beautiful, and it's not a bad bus ride from NYC (Chinatown bus to Boston, Concord Coach to Portland). What better early-fall getaway could there be? Just a suggestion.
I was lucky enough for Lidia Stone to slip me a couple preview tracks from their forthcoming EP Loud Birth. A band that never disappoints my ears, yet I seem to have some sort of curse where I am never able to catch any of their live shows in town. Their next one is no exception, as I will be in Maine installing my show. Oh well, that doesn't mean you have to make the same mistake. They play with Pony Pants and Le Rug at Silent Barn this Thursday, Oct. 2nd. It's their EP release party, and they will be giving away copies to everyone there (as in for free). Don't be a doofus like me and miss it.
