This month we are accepting gently used paperback books -- especially dictionaries, histories of people of color in the U.S., how-to books, social sciences -- to donate to NYC Books Through Bars, who work to provide books directly to our severely underserved incarcerated population. For more information on what to donate, click.
Join heroic force of positivity, Rafael Sanchez, for a sharing of music, hand-designed shirts and exchange of high-frequency energies.
Sara Musselman on Michele Mercure
New works inspired by Eye Chant
Opening reception Thursday, March 14, 6 - 8 pm

This exhibition - the first in a series to coincide with each release on FTS - will feature multi-disciplinary works created in response to the debut release, Michele Mercure's Eye Chant.

Brsitol-based imprint Bokeh Versions have been broadcasting their own strains of mutant dub via their NTS residency and releases from the likes of Seekersinternational and Jay Glass Dubs.
Label-head Bokeh Edwards brings us a special 2 hour set of swamp dub and treated field recordings that's meant to evoke imagined landscapes somewhere in South America (he's never been ;-) ).
We hope you can join us!

"Bit Tones, Sonic Moods, and Gradient Rifts" is a package put together by LA-based graphic designer Ezequiel Olvera, containing a zine by Claudia Fibonacci (aka Ezequiel Olvera), a mix CD by Jamma-Dee and a print-out of Moore's timeline. We are proud to present copies to NYC in combined celebration with Arcane's coffee adventure. They've taken great taste to new heights by adding beans to their collection of sought-after offerings. Celebrate this delicious expansion with a DJ set from boss EDG4R and coffee (and records) available for purchase.
Join us in a coast-to-coast toast on Thursday, Feb. 2nd from 7-9pm.
