I've been paying very little attention to this whole Launch dealy, which has a lot to do with those douches on the flyer (I heard it's maybe Chromeo, which makes it excusable I guess), but then I heard that the King Tuff show was part of it and my ears perked up. And then last night I met a dude, an architect, who is involved with planning it. Some pretty crazy shit is going on! There's quite an elaborate website, but the whole thing is so sprawling that I still find it confusing.
The thing the dude was so excited about, which sounds really cool, is a temporary architecture installation made out of 1000 pieces of machine-cut cardboard. It's going to be at Cesar Chavez park, I think set up on Friday? or Saturday and staying through the weekend. They have gotten some crazy permissions from the city, including the ability to have beer at CC without having to restrict it to the beer garden. I think this is where !!! and DJ Shadow, Chromeo, etc. will be.
Tuesday, July 24th is at Bows, with Ross Hammond and Gentleman Surfer. Anyway, check out the website. There are a lot of artists involved, too.
Fuck, I'm gonna do it. I'm going to have a yard sale. Sunday, 9 am. Mostly clothes and other stuff. Books, maybe records? Prices will be CHEAP. I hope none of you see me sell something you gave me. I don't want to give out my address here, so if you don't know it, maybe email me?
