SOTU FESTIVAL back in Amsterdam // April 16 - April 20

I am performing under the moniker Ti Femme on April 20th in the afternoon at Budapest (in the W.G. Terrein) // plenty of time to drink nice beers, chill out, see some solo acts, before going over to the OCCII for the Body.

OCCII PRINT EDITIONS ! // RELEASE & PARTY

***********//////////////////////////*************************************************

So now the cat is more or less out of the bag - myself and Jan (of art platform Lost Property) are currently working on publishing & printing a limited edition collection of original artist prints from some musicians/artists who have performed at OCCII in its past.
(more about OCCII here : http://occii.org/)

We are printing an edition of 75 (risograph and silk screen) which will be available for purchase beginning at the below-mentioned launch party/dance/OCCII benefit on May 2nd.

There will also be a larger edition risograph-only version (read : cheaper) so that everyone can get their hands on a copy.

Contributors include : Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt), Felicia Atkinson (Shelter Press/Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier), Peter Brötzmann, Nate Young (Wolf Eyes), Boris de Vries (Father Futureback/Adolf Butler), Meghan Remy (U.S. Girls), Rogier Smal…and more…

I’m excited, you excited?

I work from an amazing collective studio space that is part of the Binnenpret, and have spent more hours than are probably healthy in the OCCII - behind the bar, organizing A/V Club nights, witnessing amazing moments of music and performance and heckling and general mayhem, seen a few New Years bonfires sparked out in the streets of Amstelveenseweg, cooked in the MKZ, lounged in the garden with a beer in hand when the weather turned nice…
…It’s home to me…and spaces like these that foster such an incredible community of activism and creativity in all realms, are so necessary and vital. Everyone at the Binnenpret, then and now, have fought hard and enthusiastically to make sure the space is free for people to use as they will. And whenever I get angry and depressed at the amount of passiveness and apathy I run into in this city, I just remember that the people I have meet through the Binnenpret who just say, ‘fuck you’ and do whatever needs to be done.
SUPPORT us, but really - support any and all spaces like these in your area.
