Friends of the Blog Friday: Sidewalk Dave, Midnightmares, etc.

Friday, Oct. 22:
Sidewalk Dave @ Bespoke, New Haven
The Midnightmares, They Hate Us, Out to Lunch, Arcane Malevolence @ Seaside Tavern, Stamford
"Subversive Manipulations of Technology" @ Billings Forge, Hartford

Some of our BBF (Best Bloggie Friends) have gigs tonight. By now Sidewalk Dave needs no introduction around here; see them tonight in New Haven at Bespoke. And our other oft-mentioned friends The Midnightmares have a gig in Stamford with a bunch of other bands at the Seaside Tavern. HAHA - Arcane Malevolence look hilarious!

We aren't quite on a hugging basis with artist Balam Soto (the way we are with Dave and the 'Mares), but we're working on that, and we're impressed by what we've seen of his work online and intrigued by the description of "Subversive Manipulation of Technology," a collaborative new media effort by Soto and a group of CT/NYC artists, which promises a "union of electronic movement, improvisational dance and movement, large-scale interactive projections and video, experimental instruments and circuit bending." Circuit bending? Fascinating! The performance will be at 8 p.m. at Billings Forge. Afterwards you can go next door for pricey pricey drinks at the Firebox (a fancy restaurant, not a sexual euphemism).

Play us out Dave!


  1. Lol, I like the suggestiveness of "firebox", your humor gets me every time Katie. Maybe it's the british in me, I love your wry humor.

  2. Drinking at a firebox will always cost you one way or another...
