If you are in the Chicago area, make sure to stop by the Schneider Gallery for blog favorite Reuben Wu’s latest exhibition titled Distant Suns. Opening reception night is this Friday, January 10th, and will run through March 1st 2014, alongside Lynn Saville.
Some words from the gallery on Reuben’s work:
Somewhere between 1970s concept album art, expeditionary imagery, and Surrealist painting is where Reuben Wu’s photographs steadfastly sit. His are pictures made in the real world, however, through collapsing time and merging processes, the real is transformed into the surreal, evoking a response simultaneously familiar and foreign. The photographs amplify the strangeness of place and speak to Wu’s individual experience within it.

Really happy to announce that I’ll be taking a break from the studio this summer to play the Lightning in a Bottle festival on July 14th, 2013. Always wanted to check out LIB, excited to be a part of it.
UPDATE: Added another LA show and a show in Santa Ana.
We’re going to take a break from recording the next Tycho album to play a special run of shows on the west coast next month including two nights right here in San Francisco. Really excited to end off this past year of shows back home. We’ll be sharing some new songs and visuals and a few other surprises. See you soon!
The first 100 people to buy tickets for each show will receive this limited edition poster, so be sure to get your tickets soon as they’ll be gone fast.
Also really excited to announce that some good friends will be supporting for these shows. First up, Christopher Willits will be opening the Jan 18th date at the Independent in San Francisco where he will be debuting some new video work. All of the other dates will feature DOOMbird as opener, who just released an excellent EP.

With the latest trend of live shows trying to out do each other Flying Lotus goes dreamy and multi-layered with projections onto him for his project Layer 3:
new mini-documentary peeks behind the scenes of Flying Lotus’s new live audiovisual extravaganza, Layer 3 – which the Academy was proud to assist with developing in support of the Until The Quiet Comes tour. Made with the help of visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy, the trio have devised a method of transporting FlyLo into outer dimensions using two transparent scrims and interactive front and rear projectors, conjuring nothing short of the acid-fried Space Odyssey “Stargate” scene.
Treasure Island Music Festival is this weekend in SF and we have a couple things to announce. First off, Tycho will be playing at 7PM on Saturday. There will also be an ISO50 / Tycho booth with prints, clothing, and music where we’ll be doing a meetup before and after the show. Scott, Jakub, Alex, and Jonathan will be at the booth from 4-5PM on Saturday and then after the Tycho set the whole band will be hanging out over there as well so drop by and say hello. Hope to see you out there!
