Julianna Barwick at the Guggenheim in 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
JB

Sleep No More performer Emily Terndrup and La Blogotheque director Derrick Belcham have a new project called "Debut," which merges "independent music, contemporary dance theater and large-scale art installations." The music was written and will be performed by a very impressive cast of Julianna Barwick, Mauro Remiddi (Porcelain Raft), Ruby Kato Attwood and John Ancheta (Yamantaka // Sonic Titan), David Moore (Bing & Ruth), Jessie Stein (The Luyas), Hannah Epperson, Taraka Larson (Prince Rama) and Reed Smidebush (Muuny). Here's more:

"Debut" is an expansive evening of divergent and evolving paths through an experiential narrative, and tells the story of a group of teenagers who break into an abandoned building on the evening of their senior prom. Throughout the evening, the music, lighting, costume and set design will actively evolve to reflect the shifting perspectives of the characters and audience.
The show premieres in Queens on October 7-9 at the Knockdown Center, the same place that hosted Hardcore Activity In Progress and M.I.A. / A$AP Ferg earlier this year. Tickets for all three nights are on sale now. Trailer below.

"Debut" follows Terndrup and Belcham's production of "The Wilder Papers," which they staged at the Knockdown Center this past June with music/performances from Barwick, Fleet Foxes' Skyler Skjelset, Noveller, Porcelain Raft and Hannah Epperson. Check out a video of some highlights below.

Julianna Barwick plays NYC again not longer after "Debut" at the Pitchfork/Blackened Music-presented "Tinnitus" show with Ben Frost and Oneirogen on October 18 at The Wick. Tickets for that show are still available.

Prince Rama are also performing at the NY Art Book Fair.

Cat StevensCat Stevens

Cat Stevens aka Yusuf recently announced a tour that was supposed to hit NYC on December 7 at Beacon Theatre but his NYC show has now been cancelled because the state of NY wouldn't allow him to sell paperless tickets. Here's what he said:

Unfortunately I will not be performing in NYC this time around but I am looking forward to playing for fans in Philadelphia on December 4 and hope to return to NYC at a future date. My fans will understand and I thank them for informing me about the extortionate tickets prices already being listed on some websites. I have been a longtime supporter of paperless tickets to my shows worldwide and avoiding scalpers. Unfortunately NY has a state law that requires all tickets sold for shows in NYC to be paper, enabling them to be bought and sold at inflated prices. I'm sorry about not being able to now play in NYC but hope to find an opportunity that aligns with my support of this issue in the near future, God willing. Looks like the Peace Train is going to arrive at New York a little bit later than expected.
The Boston date that would've happened on December 4 now happens on December 7, and he'll now play Philly on 12/4 instead. Updated dates are listed below.

Thurston Moore

The ninth annual NY Art Book Fair is happening from September 26-28 at MoMA PS1 with a preview being held the evening of September 25. The preview features a live set from Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and his collaborator James Nares, as well as a DJ set from MEN/Le Tigre's JD Samson. That goes from 6-9 PM, and at 7 PM Thurston will be in PS1's lobby signing copies of his new chapbook of lyrics from his new album The Best Day. Skater/poet Mark Gonzalez will also be there for the launch and signing of Non Stop Poetry, his collection of over 145 of his zines. That's about a month before Thurston's tour with PCPC.

The fair will feature over 350 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from 28 countries. Here's more details:

This year's NY Art Book Fair includes an ever-growing variety of exhibitors - from the zinesters in (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome representing publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history. NYABF-classic Friendly Fire focuses on the intersections of art and activism, and with the support of the Norwegian Consulate General in New York, the NYABF and Printed Matter presents NORWAY FOCUS: KUNSTNERBØKER, a curated selection of 23 Norwegian booksellers, institutions, artists and independent publishers.

NYABF14 is also host to an array of programming and special events: now in its sixth year, The Classroom is a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. The Contemporary Artists' Book Conference (CABC), now in its seventh year, features two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture. The stage at the top of the stairs will have continuous musical performances programmed by Printed Matter, Showpaper, and Know-Wave Radio.
The fair is FREE and open to the public.

On the Saturday (9/27), there will also be more live music at PS1 during the fair, this time from I.U.D. (aka Lizzi Bougatsos of Gang Gang Dance and Sadie Laska of Growing), Prince Rama, Psalm Zero, Ratking, Junglepussy, Juiceboxxx, King Concubine, Dark Sister, Trollkrem, Fortunate Dad and onre more TBA.

Kevin DrewKevin Drew

Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew was set to begin a US tour in Portland tonight (9/23). That tour was supposed to visit Brooklyn on 9/26 for a show with Eleanor Friedberger, but we just realized that all of these dates have been cancelled with the following message from Kevin:

I am sorry to have to cancel these shows....

There is nothing i like more than playing for people and feeling connected with the ceiling of peoples party smiles....

but sometimes the state of before can shut down the anticipation of after.

What I mean is....

life has happened and i cannot make these dates work anymore.

Please, for all those who are disappointed....

buy a strobe light and blare DARLINGS in your bedroom.

love and love

kevin

This is the 2nd time this year Kevin had problems getting to the USA. The list of cancelled dates is below...
