Plastic Crimewave Sound (myspace) headline the Empty Bottle tonight, Tuesday, February 24. Also on the bill are Rabble Rabble (myspace) and Sugarfoot (myspace). $8, doors at 9 PM. 21+. (The Great Society Mind Destroyers [myspace] were originally scheduled -- and are still listed various places on the net -- but unfortunately cannot make it because of an accident.) We estimate Plastic Crimewave Sound should be going on around 11:30 PM. The Empty Bottle is at 1035 N Western Ave in Chicago (map).
Plastic Crimewave dot com 2008-08-26 1:00 PMWe added it to our links page when it was announced yesterday, but just wanted to help be sure the word gets out: Plastic Crimewave now has a homeplace on the Web, plasticcrimewave.com -- and it's definitely worth checking out. Blogging at the Reader, Philip Montoro observes parenthetically, “It must be very strange for him to work in a medium where he can't draw and letter everything by hand.”
Plastic Crimewave in LA 2008-05-06 12:51 PM
Plastic Crimewave has a couple appearances of note coming up in Los Angeles this week.
Then on Sunday, May 11 at 8 PM, an ensemble of Plastic Crimewave, Ariel Pink, and Jimi Hey be be doing a live score to 1928 German expressionist thriller/proto-horror film The Man Who Laughs at the Silent Movie Theatre (611 N Fairfax - map). Plastic Crimewave will also perform a solo score to Georges Méliès' Trip to the Moon. (We were lucky enough to see/hear Plastic Crimewave accompany this short in Chicago a bit over three years ago.)
