Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Tonite WIERD welcomes the return of Revel Hotel for a live performance at midnight! Johnny, Frankie and co. have a whole new set of trax in store which will serve as a glimpse into their forthcoming debut EP due out early next month!

I'm very proud to say that the Angular Recording Corporation in London just officially announced the forthcoming 2xLP gatefold/CD/Digital release 'Wierd Presents: Cold Waves and Minimal Electronics, Vol. I' historical compilation that has been in production between Angular labelhead Joe Daniel and I for nearly two years now! Please visit the Angular website http://www.arc018.com/ as well as Joe's 'Cold Waves' blog devoted to this epic release http://coldwaves.tumblr.com/ for more details, the cover artwork, and pre-ordering info.

Special pre-release press features on the compilation including the final 2 x LP tracklist are also now online below. The CD and digital versions will contain several extra trax soon to be revealed: Alt. Sounds Fact Magazine/UK

The WIERD world had quite an excellent time at what turned out to be one of the wildest WIERD Parties ever last Thurs. night at Art Basel Miami with 1000+ people dancing the frozen hot night away. Many videos and photos to come from this one. Special thanks to our long time VRiends Ramiro Jeancarlo and C.E. Oni of the heat-seeking Cubanowave pleasure-machine that is Opus Finis for helping coordinate the details of this incredible evening. For everyone down south due to WIERDular demand Opus will return for a repeat performance at the Living Room in Miami Beach on Dec. 15th. http://www.myspace.com/opusfinis

Xeno & Oaklander will play a special live show this coming Friday Dec. 11th, 8pm-midnight at the Boiler Room in BK(191 N. 14th St.) to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Spoonbill & Sugartown Bookstore with OPEN BAR all night. For those unfamiliar, S&S has long been Williamsburg's eminently well-stocked shop for all things art, architecture and design oriented, so please come out and help our long time supporters and friends Jonas and Miles of S&S celebrate this momentous occasion!
