Jason Forrest

Electronic music producer, musician and DJ Jason Forrest plays a free show at Public Assembly tonight (6/3) with Star Eyes, Dev/Null, and Lil Internet. Saturday (6/4) is the first-ever NYC screening of content from Jason's new online TV network Network Awesome at 92Y Tribeca. According to Jason, who launched the website in January:

"There's a fantastic amount of incredible TV shows, movies, interviews and videos that are just not getting the exposure they deserve. I started to wonder what would happen if someone put all these bits of culture together, and this is the main concept behind Network Awesome. We are passionate about sharing what we think is interesting, entertaining and culturally relevant. It's like with your friends, you say 'Cool, look at this!'"
The NYC screening will consist of short films by Karel Zeman, Sally Cruikshank and Guido Manuli, and a rare presentation of the TV show Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. According to 92Y's website, "Special guests will be on hand", though it doesn't specifically say if Jason will be there (we assume he will be). Tickets are available. Check out a video teaser for the show below.

In April, Network Awesome posted a "Live Music Show" curated by Das Racist. Their more-recent Live Music Show was curated by Jason himself. In May they posted "A Time Capsule of Early 1980s NYC's Lower East Side or, "New York's Alright (If You Like Basquiat)": Downtown 81." Browse the site for more.

Jason released an album called The Everything on April 15 in Germany via Staatsakt. You can download the album on iTunes and check out the artwork, tracklist, and the track "New Religion" below.
