tonight i'm playing at a new "diy" venue around the corner from my apartment in Bushwick, a noted artists' enclave in Brooklyn, New York, once featured in an episode of the popular HBO series GIRLS. i'm excited because i'll be performing a new set which i wrote exclusively for my electribe (and a loop pedal). it's a good news/bad news thing: the bad news is my other main sequencer is temporarily broken, but the good news is it has forced me be more creative by doing more with less. less is not always necessarily better, but i think you wind up with a stronger composition if every element's presence is completely justified. it should be fun tonight. 86 menahan. i'm on around 9.
