This news is a week old but we missed it so maybe you did too…Galapagos has moved to Dumbo (that’s not the news). Southpaw owner Matt Roff has taken over the old Galapagos space and, after holding a “rename our space” contest, renamed it Public Assembly. Check out the new/old space on the 13th when dailysession regular Jesse Mann starts up his new party “Dont Sweat!”

Brooklyn based Wax Poetics just launched a digital download site. Here’s what they’re saying about it: “This is a historic moment for Wax Poetics. We’re very proud to be the first U.S. magazine that has ventured into the digital music arena. We are excited to have the opportunity to further our message of ‘Music in Context’ through this new medium.” Check out the site here.
They’re baaaaaaack! Japanese psych-noise-crazy-genius-types Boredoms will once again bring the clattering of oh-so-many drums to the States this summer, in a bi-coastal sequel to last year’s wildly successful 77BoaDrum event. This time out, they’re calling it 88BoaDrum, and performances of the brand new 88-minute composition from Boredoms leader Eye will take place August 8 (8/8/08, you see) in both Los Angeles and Brooklyn, New York.
The Los Angeles event will take place beginning at 8:08 PM PST at the city’s famed La Brea Tar Pits, and will feature 88 drummers selected by both the Boredoms and 88Boadrum artistic director Hisham Bharoocha of Soft Circle. The New York event, conducted on behalf of the Boredoms by Brooklyn’s own Gang Gang Dance, goes down at 8:08 PM EST at the Williamsburg waterfront.
Both BoaDrums will be free and open to the public, but tickets will be required for entry. They’ll be available starting Friday, July 18 at brownpapertickets.com, at L.A.’s Amoeba Records and the L.A. County Museum of Art, or at New York’s Other Music and Sound Fix Records. Only one ticket will be available per person.
