Happy Seventh Birthday WIERD!
Colors of the Dark wishes to extend very rare birthday wishes to WIERD!
Tonight's event features a performance by the mighty Xeno & Oaklander at Midnite! If you are anywhere near New York City you should be there.
Here's the official word from Wierd founder Pieter Schoolwerth:
It was this week almost to the day back in the fall of 2003 that the Wierd World was born at the legendary Southside Lounge in BK, and now 7 years and 400+ parties later less than a mile away, every single week, we're still going strong. So it is with pleasure this Wednesday evening that the WIERD proudly invites you all out to a celebration of this amazing, invisible, incredibly fragile sculpture we've all built together in our Refuge Underneath the frozen cold world in a time in which more and more bringing people together to revel in the fleshly bliss of real space and time is truly becoming Very Rare, we truly thank you all for your continued support. We're wrapping up and soon will be unleashing the long-overdue, and entirely updated massive invitation archive thats years behind at this point its been quite a labor of vague froide love I assure you, so you'll all be able to relive and VRemember all the wild nights at last!...stay tuned...
It only makes sense somehow that our beloved in-house heros XENO & OAKLANDER will be taking the stage on this momentous occasion. Sean and Liz will indeed be making this performance extra special they tell me as they will be debuting a whole new set of trax off their forthcoming second album on the way next year. This will be one for the VRecord books, can't wait to see you all [tonight]! VRp.
This week's party will also be an unofficial NYC launch party of sorts for the new issue of ANP Quartely which includes perhaps the most erudite and radically ambitious epic feature on the Wierd World to date by the great Ethan Swan of Silk Flowers - so many pages of photos, interviews, anecdotes etc. We'll have as many boxes of the monster oversize print edition as we can jam into the little sputtering Wierdmobile to drivem to the club tomorrow on hand, so arrive early if you'd like a complimentary copy. This excellent ad-free bi-annual not-for-profit publication is crafted with care and won't be out there for long so grab one before, like all precious things, they become...VR.
Glenn Maryansky, Anarexia, and Frankie Teardrop Spin the History of the WIERD!
