I know it seems like every time there’s an Arthur Russell related event in town I somehow get myself involved. Maybe it’s because I can’t even put into words how much I love his music? It’s really that simple. This time is going to be special. A bunch of Arthur’s old friends and collaborators have formed a band called Arthur’s Landing to play his music. Peter Gordon described it: “It’s a large, lively band, playing his disco music, songs and instrumental compositions seamlessly.” They will be joined by Nomi of Hercules & Love Affair, Nick Hallett, Alex Waterman and Rafael Sanchez. On the DJ front, I will be playing a mixed set of Arthur related disco not disco and downtown art musics before and between the live bands, while neo-disco superstars Lee Douglas and Just Vandervolgen will be DJing well into the evening.

This takes place Saturday, April 4th at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker St, NYC. Doors at 10, 12$ adv., 15$ day of. More information can be found on the Facebook event page.

Coming soon…another Lines update. Maybe this blog should be called “the Arthur Russell DJ event and Lines update” While I have your attention, I did my first Viva radio show in a thousand years, now that they’ve finally fixed things. I actually did it weeks ago when I had a free minute, but didn’t get to upload it till now. It’s called “Chain or Reaction” and features some classic New Zealand stuff, a bit of the Chills but mostly of the Peter Jefferies/Xpressway axis. It’s all good.

Coming later…another Acute CD, some Acute vinyl, some more DJ gigs and other ways to be cool.
