So next Friday I’ll play a show at the new hipster hot spot in Manhattan,
Pianos, with some astonishingly good friends, Wobbly and Blevin Blectum, both
from San Francisco. It promises to be a really, really good show, it’s only $5
and alot of you friends are over due for a night out of drinking and insane
dancing … really, if you’re in town you should come and have some fun!!! And
bring your other friends!!!! HA!!
OK the info/hype:
BLACK CRACK SESSIONS presents
158 Ludlow St. (Lower East Side)
At Stanton St.
10pm doors / $5
Some call it Plunderphonics, while others might call it sample-core.
Regardless of what you’d name it, this astonishing triple bill brings together 3 of
the world’s most renowned experimental musicians for a very special night down
on the Lower East Side. Hailing from the Bay area, both Wobbly and Blevin
Blectum have redefined what electronic music is, and what it can do. They will
be joined here tonight by brash new comer Donna Summer.
Jon Leidecker has been producing collage-based music under the name Wobbly
since 1990. He’s released CD’s on Kid 606’s Tigerbeat6, Phthalo, and the aptly
named Illegal Art. He’s lit up audiences at the Royal Festival Hall in
London, Sonar in Barcelona, and has been performing lately with Matmos, Negativland
and People Like Us. The Wire says: “Wobbly galvanizes digitally corroded
samples into a complex array of seasick yet strangely catchy loops, before quickly discarding them in search of another set of quirky rhythms.” Tonight he’ll be doing all sorts of shit that will make you wonder why you haven’t written about him before.

Blevin Blectum, formerly 50% of the massively lauded Blectum From Blechdom,
presents “Traffica”, a multimedia collaboration with video artist Ryan Junell.
“It is a lost comedic delusional paranoid fantasy fixative on the giving and
receiving of traffic tickets in San Francisco.” Rumor has it they’ll be
dressing up all funny. This is, incredibly enough, Blevin’s first real show in New

Local boy Donna Summer (AKA Jason Forrest) takes the stage tonight with an
overconfident stride, and a penchant for berserk theatrics. His latest UK album
has been creating a stir internationally, and has been tearing up dance
floors from Tokyo to Berlin. The current issue of XLR8R raves: “With David Lee
Roth’s charm, Keith Richard’s skill, and a pseudonym shared by disco’s greatest
diva, Donna Summer single-handedly inducted his computer into rock and roll‘s
economy of sex appeal.”
