introducing a new mix series from our Commend home. Sides will explore the collections of our favorite heads from the Commend space and beyond.
first up is John Also Bennett (JAB), a NYC-based synthesist and sound designer, member of the band Forma, and one half of Seabat. he also works behind the scenes for RVNG Intl. and Commend. peer into this sonic psyche below:
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.
