A few of us at Be Nice Art Friends made our way out to brooklyn tuesday night to see Chad Vangaalen, one of our favorite musicians and artists. His latest release on Sub Pop titled Diaper Island has been running on rotation for about a month now and is definitely a must listen. Check him out performing “Sara” captured here on the iPhone.
Martin Dosh (born September 6, 1972), known in music as Dosh, is a musician and multi-instrumentalist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As an artist, Dosh is a percussionist who uses various electronics, often with a Fender Rhodes. Dosh has been characterized mostly as experimental and electronic-based due to his use of many samplers and looping machines and the rhythmic feel of much of his music, with songs often relying on Dosh alone on keyboards, marimba, and drums. Dosh is often in collaboration with other musicians during live sets and on recording, both locally and nationally known.
Dosh’s most recent release from May 2008 is Wolves and Wishes. The album features appearances from Bonnie Prince Billy, Andrew Bird, Fog, Odd Nosdam, and long-time contributors, Mike Lewis and Jeremy Ylvisaker.
watch the process of Martin Dosh as he performs ” Fireball” live at the Varsity theater.
Just in one of those Erykah Badu moods. It just doesn’t get much cooler…
Dutch Kills is by far the best place to have a drink in NYC or anywhere for that matter. Experience a high level of class, environment and great spirits from Richard Boccato and his crew @ 27-24 Jackson Avenue Long Island City, NY 11101. It is truly a unique experience for the person who just has no idea what going out for drinks is really all about. Dutch Kills bar has commissioned several of my works which are permanently installed under glass on the establishments walls. They also collaborated recently with Anonymous Gallery for a special project during Armory Week. Big shot outs to the talented Matt Clark, Abraham and his stylish and fine work in this video and Karin Stanley for your brilliant inventions. Thanks Amanda, Ben and Zach for your extra friendly hospitality. You have all been too good to me. : )
