We Are Not the First Album Release + Video Premier @ Commend, October 30

cmmnd_hb-03

Join us at Commend this Friday October 30 to raise / praise the release of We Are Not the First, the 11 poem Epic forged by Hieroglyphic Being & J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Buhl.

We’ll also screen / celebrate the video for “Fuck the Ghetto / Think About Outer Space.” Directed by Georgia (Brian Close & Justin Tripp) and featuring vocals by Rafael Sanchez, the clip is an ecstatic admonishment of the prison of technology / the ghetto of the mind.

A live musical performance from Georgia + spoken word from Sanchez will provide a meal of melted tunes and tomes for your brain with complimentary green tea on the side.

@ 172 Forsyth between Stanton and Rivington, 7-9pm.

with bonus tracks and new, visceral mastering, the album gleams all the more and signals a spree of live performances this fall revisiting the material.
