This Sunday I invite you to join me for my first ever solo live performance for FREE. I have no idea what will happen. I have no idea how this will sound. I will begin prepping Sunday morning and what you will see and hear will be an entirely improvisational performance that will start and end with you in your home. No editing, no multi-tracking… you will get the full nitty gritty: fuck ups and all. I follow a list of highly varied and skilled performers and recommend tuning in early to hear and see all of their performances! Please RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/140097439463119

There is a backpack. There will be things that make noise in this backpack. There is a plane. It will be taking this backpack to Seattle. There are MORE noise making things and people in Seattle. We will all be in a room with these things. These things will light up when electricity is surged through them and they will make SOUND. SOUND YOU CAN HEAR. WITH YOU EARS. THAT ARE NEXT TO YOUR FACE. YOUR FACE HAS THESE EYE THINGS THAT CAN SEE:
Once again, THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN creep out from their secret little holes to entertain YOU, the seedy underbelly of NYC and to help a friend, John Servo DeSalvo (recovering uninsured from a shattered leg) 7 bands. 8 Burlesque performances.

THIS. IS. THE. BIG. ONE.
We, The Qualia (Lars Casteen, Chvad SB, Rossen Nedelchev, and Zakai Robbins) will be celebrating the release of our new EP,MEMORIAL GORE, by completely losing our minds at Pianos on the evening of July 8th.
And we’re not alone. We’ve roped Bellevue’s Finest (the best band in New York City) into helping us in our festivities. Sure, we’re really excited about this, but we’re not the real winner.
THE REAL WINNER IS YOU. For only 10 American dollars, you can see both New York’s best band and the world’s best synthesizer music for a stunning two hour event. Also, you will be able to pick up our new EP, MEMORIAL GORE, for a great low price.
We will be playing a BRAND NEW COVER of a SONG THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIKE, and it WILL BE INCREDIBLE.
Come on out!

When: Friday, July 8th, starting at 9:30 p.m.
Where: Pianos, 158 Ludlow St in the LES
