Amoeba Music is proud to sponsor “Without Sympathy: The Visceral Journey of Al Jourgensen” at Lethal Amounts Gallery in Downtown L.A., documenting the development of industrial music pioneer Al Jourgensen of Ministry.

Co-presented by Cleopatra Records and Lethal Amounts, the exhibit features the archives of Brian Shanley, photographer and art director of legendary Chicago industrial label Wax Trax! Both Shanley and Jourgensen will be on hand for the opening night of the exhibit April 17 at 8 p.m.

The show documents the early years of Ministry and its side projects as Jourgensen and like-minded musicians stretched the definition of electronic and new-wave music from 1980 to 1990, including Revolting Cocks, 1000 Homo DJs, PTP, Pailhead, Special Affect and more. Expect a sordid array of images from the early club days to major label success, including original album art/layout, concept designs, cut-and-paste flyers, magazine clippings, promo glossies and a selection of unearthed photographs from the era.

Lethal Amounts is located at 1226 W 7th Street in Los Angeles.

Amoeba’s pop-up shop is open from 12 to 6 p.m. from Wednesday through Sunday and features Blue Note vinyl for sale along with listening stations. Amoeba’s shop is Sonos Studio’s first ever “Records-in-Residency” program.

The exhibition, which began last week, will stay open through Oct. 24. The exhibition celebrates the legendary jazz and blues label's 75th anniversary and features Blue Note’s iconic album art (originally by artist Reid Miles, using photographs of the musicians in session by photographer Francis Wolff) remixed by Phil Bicker, Letman and Shadrach Lindo for Studio Lindo. The opening of the exhibition featured a performance by Robert Glasper.

(Look close – I'm the guy in the green shirt next to the building.)

I recently returned from a week-long stay in San Francisco.

Now, before you jump to conclusions that’ll confuse matters as I continue on with my story about San Fran, (yes, there’s even more to the story!) it’s important to clarify I was in San Francisco, California – not, I repeat not, San Francisco, Córdoba.

Okay? I just saved you from asking a bunch of inappropriate questions about whether I heard any good cuarteto while away, plus making embarrassingly irrelevant jokes about “getting a dolor de la panza from eating too much Cabsha Alfajores de Dulce de Leche Cubierto con Chocolate.” I know you too well, dear reader! You and your assumptions.

San Francisco, California is located roughly 3,670 miles south-west of Prince Edward Island, but don’t confuse the two – only one of these locations was watered with the many tears of the Mi’kmaq people and named after a British royal who was no fun at drinking-games.
