Upcoming events: "Besides my regulars (Loving Touch (first and third Wednesdays at Lo-Fi); Weird Room—micro techno party in the Nacho Borracho back room), I have a gig at the Panther Room at Output NYC on September 22 with my friends I've been working with for the last year or so (Marco Malpeso from Berlin and Anderson from Connecticut, along with 100hz from UK). I'm also bringing them out here on September 29 to Re-bar, which will also be the grand opening party for the extended pop-up record store Looters Records." (Located at 2310 E. Madison St., tickets for the event can be purchased here.)
