from Steve Krakow aka Plastic Crimewave:
“this friday July 27th- is a BIG ONE, please do come out–!!! It’s the official release party for my baby, the Galactic Zoo Dossier #7– over a year and a half in the making, it’s a 100-page, 72 trading card, 2CD extravaganza of an underground psychedelic magazine, and we’ll have copies for sale at a discounted price. There’ll also be free beer, an effects-treated reading by yours truly at 8:30pm, and the extreme honor of GZD-music contributor and godlike noise-guitar proto-post-punk legend from MN, Michael Yonkers– playing both solo and with my outfit Plastic Crimewave Sound backing him, at 9pm. If you haven’t heard Yonkers’ Sub Pop-reissued “Microminiature Love” from 1968, you are missing a classic bit of throbbing underground guitar paranoia. Yonkers recent even noisier work and 70’s private pressed folk LP’s (about to be reissued as well) are also essential listening.
The whole event starts at 7:30pm with insane collector know-it-all DJs Chris Carnahan and Dante Carfagna spinning the rarest and hottest major label psych, unknown private presses and loner folk funk, throughout the night….but the event should be over by 11pm.
it all goes down thanks to drag city and stop smiling, who is hosting the event at their space in wicker park, at their fine storefront/space at 1371 north milwaukee ave.
since the event is free and will fill up fast, we’d like people to rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org
