Took a week off to head to the beach and do other fun stuff. I’m actually tired of saying that relaxing is more tiring that working.
Had a super fun LAZERCRUNK this past friday with guest Shiftee, hit up Park Bruge, the Arts Fest, Ian Michael Black’s comedy show and the OJO ..er..’experience’ that Bricolage put together,
hung with the family for father’s day and capped it off with the Game of Thrones season finale. Couldn’t really ask for more.
Mostly avoided digital un-reality for the past week, but catching up on some goings on, here’s a few things I can recommend this week:
$4 – $5 Donation At Door For Touring Bands
(APT 421 Tapes, Vague Output // Baltimore, MD)
___ All-hardware electronic noise musician, Josh Laskin, emerges from the Baltimore underground on a brief tour of the east-coast. Exhibiting a wide array of textures, Laskin conjures sonic imagery that lies somewhere between ethereally busted and the utterly dismal.
+ DWAYNE RIFLE
(Firehazard Records // Pittsburgh, PA)
___ Found object, broken instrument & tape improvisation.
+ MICAH BLACKWELL
___ Well-versed in rhythms, noise (and pseudonyms), Micah Blackwell takes an unpredictable approach to sound, utilizing diverse set-ups and unique arrangements… expect the unexpected!
+ WASP NEST HEAD DRESS
(Turtle Creek, PA)
___ The claustrophobic harsh noise/ power electronics offerings of Eric Ross. In the words of the man himself, “depressing sounds presented by someone full of fucking nothing.”
(Unknown Tone Records, Firehazard Records // West Mifflin, PA)
___ Improvised sound-collages and manipulated analog samplings from the buckled & dripping mind of Zach Katonik.

+ SUNSHINE FILLED SETS FROM OUR RESIDENTS
We’re excited to have our friend and all around shining individual Tomasz do a set for us. Weekly he charms our ears with his selection of synthesized sounds on “Salad Daze” his weekly radio show on WRCT. Monthly he fills our bellies as one of the driving forces behind Pierogi Night and the catering business Apteka. Whether you catch him behind the decks or in the kitchen, you can always count on him to bring a smile to your face.
The residents will be providing sunshine filled sets of the house, techno, disco, synth, and a variety of other bright selections mixed in.

Friday June 20th
9PM – 2AM
$3 Before 11 / $5 After
Saturday is the first day of summer and we’re trying to get in the solstice mood. We’re making some bao bun sandwiches, and in the spirit of a kicked-back summer attitude, we’re taking some liberties and pulling together our favorites of south east Asian cooking to make these guys really special (we’re looking at you, Burma). So after you pull those whatchacallit wrappers off your back that you picked up at the polish hill pool, waddle on over and eat with us.
No shoes, no shirt, no problem- this is a pirate ship- that’s appropriate attire.
$10 take-out (5 pierogi + 1 big bao)
As always, all vegan. Bao buns- Gluten Free.
