release party for the new Psychic
TV
album. "Psychic TV/ PTV3
returns with Mr. Alien Brain vs.
The Skinwalkers!
, a collection of
ALL new material from various
sessions." Dias records head
Gibby will guest DJ. Last time I
was there, the Punch-Out game
was working fine. It should be a
fabulous nite out.

And since there's an extra Saturday this Nov., there's an extra XY:XX. A tribute to D.A.F. is in the works. Although, the competition is fierce as only blocks away, the New Beverly is running a Vanity triple feature...

It is exactly 8 days to 8-8-8 (aka August 8th, 2008), when many noteworthy events are scheduled to take place, including, of course, the kick off of the Olympics in Beijing and such lesser publicized events as World Hoop Day. 8-8-8 is also the date for the Boredoms' 88BoaDrum show.

Check out the blog I did on last year's 77BoaDrum.

Another music-related event scheduled for 8-8-8 at exactly 8 o'clock is when Genesis P-Orridge of Psychic TV has announced that he/she will have the final surgery in the ongoing series of gender reassignment operations in the unique Pandrogeny Project (a love story of gender reunion), that he/she and his/her late partner/collaborator Lady Jaye, who tragically died suddenly late last year, were going through together -- essentially a process whereby they were attempting to become one and the same person, or as close to it as physically/mentally possible.
