hello everyone! it’s been an intensely busy couple of weeks for us electronic spirits. our mini-tour of the northeast was great fun and very successful; our sincere thanks to everyone who came out, especially the FOUR artists in the program who braved the crazy rains in new york: thanks shana, michael, elliot, and jillian! and of course, thanks to paige sarlin of magic lantern in providence and jack and peter of le petit versailles in new york, as well as michael o’neill (aka DJ LGBT) for bringing us to heathers bar for afterparty fun!

we also had a screening at the school of the art institute of chicago this past tuesday! many thanks to mark jeffery, faith wilding, and mike fleming for making our contribution to the performance department’s PROPOSITIONS series come off successfully. for all of our chicago friends who couldn’t make it, fear not–we will be having a local screening that is a) outside of the loop and b) does not require dealing with security guards very very soon!

AND NOW, we have some plans for your halloween weekend. by a curious cosmic coincidence, although we do not have what would be an appropriately spooky screening this weekend, we do have not one but TWO fun-fun-fundraising events!

TODAY. HALLOWEEN. fruitbasket (aka latham and ethan) will be spinning records at danny’s tavern from 10pm until 2am! wear something ridiculous and come ready to get down. we’ll be the ones dressed as kurt cobain and courtney love. zombie grundge disco nonsense. you love it.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER FIRST! the hideout is hosting a benefit show for CHANNELING! see the amazing poster above, created by aay preston-myint, whose work is also in the program. featuring golden birthday, mayor daley, magical, beautiful, and hearts of darkness. the show starts at 8:30pm and is a mere $8 (get tix here). we’re super excited–please come out and help us take CHANNELING on the road, and most importantly, pay our artists! crazy, right?

in less than 24 hours, latham and i will be burning some dvds, packing up our records, and getting on a rhode island-bound fancy airjet, ready to bring the spookiness to providence and the magic lantern! from there, we’ll head to new york city for a couple of days of nefarious plotting and dead-summoning before heading over to le petit versailles for another screening and then to heather’s bar for some good queer fun!
