MCMAF & Arthur Magazine co-present

The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda + Paradise Now

Take an alchemical journey with Ira Cohen’s The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda, a mythosphere filtered through Mylar and worthy of Kenneth Anger’s most lysergic moments, with ritual music provided by ex-Velvet Undergrounder Angus MacLise. Also on the program is Marty Topp’s Paradise Now: The Living Theatre in Amerika. “Life, revolution and theater are three words for the same thing: an unconditional NO to the present society” – Julian Beck, Living Theatre co-founder

About Jay Babcock

I am the co-founder and editor of Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curator of the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was one of five Angelenos listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. Today, I live a peaceful life in the rural wilderness of Joshua Tree, California, where I am a partner in JTHomesteader.com with Stephanie Smith.
