Quick News Here And There

Hello, patient, decimated but still beloved leadership,

A quick post to let you know there won't be much on here for a while until early next year, when FBC! will have relocated to Europe. Things are going to be very chaotic for us at the FBC! headquarters for a few months, so please bear with us until we're stabilized.

So, what's new? In just about a few weeks, we will launch an Indiegogo to help fund an extensive writing project of ours and cover some research expenses (namely travel and buying books). Please stay tuned, pass it around when it comes up, and if you can contribute a little something we would be most grateful. It will likely take 2 to 3 years to complete (because we don't have a trust fund at FBC! headquarters so research and writing will have to be done on weekends) so you will have to be patient

More immediately and closer to us in Los Angeles, Juan Capistran just opened his solo show White Riot at Tom Solomon's gallery in Chinatown. We've been long-time fans but this show is really awesome, very tight conceptually and visually. Also impossible to photograph if you're not a pro, so take my word for it. Basically, if you like rigorous artist such as Jack Goldstein, Jennifer Moon, Analia Saban or Matthew Brannon you should love this show. Go see it!

The Kenneth Price show at LACMA seems interesting too, but we haven't seen it yet.

Musically, 2012 keeps on being great with the latest releases of The Raveonettes, Dan Deacon, Swans, the upcoming interpretation of Nico's Desertshore by Throbbing Gristle, John Cale's new record,  and the announcement of the December 3rd release of Scott Walker's  Bisch Bosch.

That's all for today, and thanks again for your patience,

the FBC! staff
