friday funk

it's gonna be a slow weekend for me here in chicago. so this is what's in my ears (rick wade) and on my mind at the moment:

MOOMIN MORNING IN THE WINDY CITY i'm really excited about this one - an excellent booking for chicago. moomin's LP the story about you was one of my favorite albums from last year, and the german dj obviously has classy tastes (like just about everyone from the smallville label/family) as evidenced by this clubberia mix, which has been stuck on my playlist for months now. moomin will be playing an early morning party next sunday, alongside a fine group of local dj's. nice one. check out the details on facebook and/or RA.

MONOLAKE SHOWS HIS GHOSTS robert henke is back in action with a new album, ghosts. the announcement is old news, sure, but it will be released at the end of the month. i'll be keen to pick up a vinyl copy or two as soon as possible; silence from two years ago already commands 'collectors' prices on discogs. anyway, ghosts seems like it should meet with plenty of anatomy approval here, especially given such an openly abstract album name (compared to prior titles like hongkong and polygon cities). go read the words at "Some kind of monotonous moans that seem to come from nowhere." looking forward!

THE BEAN VERSUS LUMINOUS FIELD this looks like a classic chicago public art spectacle. millennium park's 'cloud gate' - aka that big huge bean-mirror - will get bathed in psychedelic light and rhythms over the next 10 days. check the picture to the right, read all about it at the trib, go!

and now, for a change of pace (and dj skirt)...

THE OCTOPUS! that's a cool-looking exclamation with all caps and all italics, right? anyway you may wonder why i diverged from my usual cosmic imagery at the top of this post. it's because of this very interesting story about octopuses. under the sea, under the sea!

DEADMAU5 TO LEAD TERRIFYING GRAMMY-NIGHT PERFORMANCE COLLAB all on one stage: deadmau5, david guetta, the foo fighters, lil wayne, and others... whatever the grammys are smoking this year, i will *not* be trying to grab from their stash. we live in a crazy, fucked up world.

okay, that's it from my end. i'll have some monday moods to serve up next; until then, have a radical weekend.
