LA punks No Age are on the East Coast this weekend, as part of a traveling concert/art exhibit titled Generationalpictomusicapolis that also features performances by Portland/LA psych folk band Sun Foot (featuring members of Smog, Swell, and Jackie-O Motherfucker) and Devin Gary & Ross, the trio featuring Pee Wee's Playhouse artist Gary Panter as well as animator Devin Flynn, and photographer/sign painter Ross Goldstein. It hits NYC on Friday (7/17) at Surf Pavilion in Coney Island and tickets are on sale. Here's a little more about it:
A celebration of collaborative music and art making, this one night concert and pop-up exhibition features experimental punk from No Age (Randy Randall and Dean Spunt), the barely amplified feel-good vibes of Sun Foot (Ron Burns, Chris Johanson, Brian Mumford) and the ramshackle psych-folk of Devin Gary & Ross (Devin Flynn, Gary Panter, Ross Goldstein. Limited-edition, collaboratively made artworks created by each band member are exhibited at the show, and are available for purchase. These unique prints utilize the creative vision of each individual musician/artist as well as the whole of the group, and feature paint, photography, silk screens, spray paint and more.Generationalpictomusicapolis is in Toronto tonight (7/16) and Philadelphia's PhilaMoca on Saturday (7/18). Sounds pretty cool.

by Klaus Kinski
Gary Panter is an illustrator, painter, Panter, designer and part-time musician whose name is synonymous with Pee Wee's Playhouse, underground comics, and a post-punk artistic aesthetic. He won three Emmy awards for his work on Pee Wee's Playhouse, and is sort of regarded as an underground comic God. He's done album covers, fliers, comics for books and magazines and all sorts of other stuff. In 2006-2007, Panter was exhibited alongside Winsor McCay, Lyonel Feininger, George Herriman, Elzie Segar, Frank King, Chester Gould, Milton Caniff, Charles Schulz, Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Robert Crumb, Art Spiegelman and Chris Ware at the Masters of American Comics exhibition at the Jewish Museum in NYC.
The Whitney Museum of American Art currently has an exhibition called Lyonel Feininger: At The Edge of the World on view through October 16th. (note: Feininger is a Klaus favorite. This show is not to be missed). As part if the exhibition, the Whitney has organized an epic event on Wednesday July 20th at 7:00pm featuring a panel discussion that will include Gary Panter, Art Spiegelman, and Chris Ware (another Klaus favorite!). They will discuss the intersection of comics and fine art, do a Q&A, and get assaulted by your man Klaus for some autographs. The event will be moderated by John Carlin.
Panter recently donned his musician hat for a new release by Devin Gary & Ross called Four Corners Bounce.
Devin Gary & Ross is a mind melting three- man music making machine. Four Corners Bounce is their first record. The six tunes on it are full spectrum serving of psychedelia that includes washed out wanderings over well- worn terrain, bold ventures into a candy-col- ored abyss and a snappy title track that you will end up signing in the shower.The artwork was recently given the honor Best Cover of the Month by Vice. That's it above. MP3 at Altered Zones.
In other awesome Whitney-related-events-news, be sure to mark your calendars for Wednesday August 10th, 2011. Why? Because in conjunction with the Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools exhibition, the Whitney has scheduled an event called Title TK Meets Danny Goldberg. Who are Title TK? Title TK is a three piece band consisting of Cory Arcangel, Howie Chen and Alan Licht. They are a phenomenal band, though some regard them as slightly banter prone.
Who's Danny Goldberg?
Goldberg has had a long and distinguished career since the late 1960s, ranging from personal manager, record company president, public relations man, and music journalist. Among other things, he served as Chairman and CEO of Mercury Records Group and of Warner Bros. Records, was Vice President of Led Zeppelin's Swan Song Records, and managed The Allman Brothers, Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and the Beastie Boys.The guy is a freaking legend, and that blurb is only the tip of the iceberg of this man's achievements and contributions to music. You will laugh. You will get annoyed. You will laugh. And you will learn something.
