We are pleased to be able to help Tom out in some small way by being part of this benefit organized by Issue Project Room. It will be Wednesday September 12th at 285 Kent in Brooklyn. Thurston will be presenting his new project Chelsea Light Moving.
Gary War has generously asked us to be part of his record release party at Le Poisson Rouge. We will be playing as a trio with the inimitable multi-instrumentalist Hahn Rowe. Our man Carlos Giffoni will also be jamming his No Fun Acid Project. Come celebrate. The action starts around 10:00.
Looks like we will be performing on June 2nd at 7:00pm in a beautiful old church on West 57th Street. The festival has a indiegogo page to help raise money for their expenses. We will be playing with our old friend and Downtown audio/visual pioneer David Linton.

The answers to all your burning questions.
Here are a couple of nice mentions for our Record Release show this Sunday.
Feb. 26: White Out celebrates the release of its subtle and powerful fifth album, “Asphalt and Delay.” Formed in 1995, this genre-defying duo—Tom Surgal, on percussion, and Lin Culbertson, on synthesizers, voice, and flute—is known for frequent collaborations with more prominent but equally adventurous musicians, such as Thurston Moore and Jim O’Rourke. The improvised songs on the record move seamlessly between richly textured, almost delicate moments and dense, noisy climaxes. For this show, the Swedish guitarist Anders Nilsson will be their guest. The gentle avant-blues guitar master Loren Connors opens.

White Out Record Release Show
Local experimental twosome White Out (composed of Tom Surgal and Lin Culbertson) offer this free evening of musicality at Zebulon in support of their latest album, Asphalt and Delay. The duo have an off-kilter sound that speaks to their anti-establishment roots—exactly the sort of thing you’d expect from the kinds of folks who’ve previously collaborated with the likes of Thurston Moore and Jim O’Rourke.
We are going to be guests on the Live Constructions show on WKCR. We will be playing some tracks off the new record Asphalt and Delay as well as other material including some boss live unreleased jams.
