Drew Makes The Rainbow Connection In Manhattan

Partnership is nice and all, and you will shortly see oodles of that
on display as Matmos graces the Brainwaves Festival, but this weekend
Drew Daniel will be doing his solo thing, academically speaking and
otherwise, at two events in New York City. The first is a bona fide
lecture at Columbia, and the second is a bookreading and . . . wait
for it . .. Soft Pink Truth gig in New York City at a benefit for
Housing Works.

The Columbia Early Modern Seminar Presents
Prof. Drew Daniel, The Johns Hopkins University
“My Self, My Sepulchre: Melancholy and Masculinity in Samson Agonistes”

Thursday, November 13, 2008
6:00 PM; free
612 Philosophy Hall
Columbia University Campus

You’re probably only supposed to go to this if you actually attend
Columbia. Or something. So, try to blend in and look the part. Then,
after moping at home all day on Friday, on Saturday night you are
strongly encouraged to attend a charity event:


Saturday, November 15, 2008
8:00pm; Tickets $10
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
126 Crosby Street, New York, NY 10012 :: 212-334-3324

As the HW website has already pointed out, this is a multi-headed
monster: “Matmos’s Drew Daniel will read from his book on Throbbing
Gristle (Throbbing Gristle: Twenty Jazz Funk Greats, 33 1/3 Books),
answer questions, and do a solo dance music/noise laptop performance
(aka dance party).” What sort of dance party can you have in a
bookstore at 8 pm? Well, looking back over the years it seems that in
all this time The Soft Pink Truth has never performed in Manhattan
ever. So . . . prepare yourself for the long overdue manifestation of
SPT in The Big Apple at a bookstore, get ready to jack your body as
Drew “covers” some classic anthems and contribute to an essential
cause while you are at it.
