WIERD Presents a Live Performance by Tobias Bernstrup!

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

This will be another epic week in the WIERD world as Wednesday we are honored to welcome the return of our old friend performance artist Tobias Bernstrup for a live synthetic music performance at midnight! This will be the official record release party for Tobias' new 12" 3 track EP 'Midnight Blue' which will be available here for the first time! Apart from our creeping suspicions that the EP's title track has its etymological origins in the back seat of one M Canterel's mysteriously short-lived 1983 BMW 325i, rumors have it that our beloved specimen of the Svedsk Arachnoid night will be joined onstage by a surprise dark synth diva guest to perform 'The Blue' in all its open road Ferrarissima glory! When we tried to reach M Bernstrup for comment his eminently distinguished gallerist replied simply he was unavailable at the moment as he was on a plane en route from Addis Abeba, Ethiopia by way of Istanbul(no I'm not kidding, the Bernstrup world tour has visited places we can only imagine)...to which we of course simply replied...'Ah yes I see, excellent, well then I suppose we'll just see him Wednesday yes? Thank you very much for your time Ms Schiptjenko'...VR

As if the pleasures of the frozen cold Midnight Blue weren't enough this weekend WIERD Records will be participating in the first ever New York Eye and Ear Record Fair and Music Fest at Vanishing Point in Brooklyn presented by Pendu.org. Congratulations to Todd Pendu and Patrick from Vanishing Point for putting together a massive 2 day festival of 36 bands and 30 independent record labels celebrating the state of DIY music in New York City! More info is available here via the website and MySpace page, I'll be sending out more details on Thursday for this event featuring the likes of Xeno and Oaklander, Led er Est, and Cult of Youth which, for anyone who cares about the current state of independent music in the US, is not to be missed!:
