FUCKED UP GIG!
w/ artwork by BRIAN SCHMIDT
"I have known Brian Schmidt for longer than I have known most anyone. Our families are very close freinds and I was lucky enough to have Brian babysit me back when I was 6 to 8 years old. This is where I got to hear a lot of my earliest rock and roll records. I still will never forget him teaching me to play 'Heaven's On Fire' by KISS on the bass, or the amazing PRINCE mural he had CARVED into his bedroom wall!! Too cool! We recently reconnected a couple years ago when he showed up to one of my gigs. I hadn't seen him for over 20 years! I think he really connected the abstract sound to his abstract artwork, and has become quite a regular figure in the Ann Arbor noise scene. He'll often show up to gigs with paintings to trade for tapes and records! We are all excited to have his works displayed for this show. His mysterious work will complement the sounds perfectly."

UFO FACTORY AT MOCAD--
CARDBOARD ART HISTORY
Curated by Davin, Dion and Warn
AUGUST at MAJESTIC CAFE, Detroit
(opening reception Thursday August 7, 7-11pm)
"You all may remember the TIME STEREO/UFO FACTORY installation at the MOCAD "Considering Detroit" artshow May-July 2008. If you were able to visit the installation I'm sure you enjoyed the exact replica of the real UFO FACTORY, perfect in every detail except is was made entirely of cardboard, tape and glue instead of traditional building materials.
On July 19, 2008, PRINCESS DRAGONMOM held a ROBOT HEART artshow/ performance inside the cardboard UFO FACTORY at MOCAD. Sadly, during the course of this performance, most of the UFO FACTORY was destroyed by the out-of-control robot who was trying to find his missing heart while PRINCESS DRAGONMOM played harsh electronic noise.
Fortunately, using careful excavation and restoration techniques, members of PDM were able to salvage some of the artwork as well as some architectural details.
As a result, this artwork and architecture will be on display at the MAJESTIC CAFE for the entire month of August!!!"
Featuring artwork by Dion Fischer, Davin Brainard, Warn Defever, Sarah Lapinski, Aliccia BB, Hitoko Sakai, Jamie Easter, Jenny Price, Sarah Burger, Chris Pottinger and the Taormina Bros.
The artwork will also be for sale at reduced prices so you can bring home a UFO FACTORY memory!!!
