Abandoned Yugoslavian Monuments

Crack Two has a great photo collection of abandoned monuments here.  The author doesn’t quite know what “Soviet” means, but the photos are great.  Like a commenter noted, they look like Halo happened here on Earth.

unFact at the Tank with Noveller collaboration and films by Sean Patrick

I’m playing this Tuesday evening at the Tank.  The show is early: I’ll start playing at 7 PM and the whole thing will be over by 9 PM.  I’ll play my own unFact set with short films by filmmaker Sean Patrick, and then do a collaborative improvisation set with Noveller.  This is part of the Tank’s Ear ♥ Music series.

Noveller’s web site
Sean Patrick films
Event calendar for the Tank – this incorrectly shows the show as starting at 8 PM.  If you get there at eight, you’ll miss most of the show.
