Dear Distopian Dream Girls,
At the mention of Friday, a youngish band’s thoughts naturally turn to the German author Alfred Döblin, who wrote, “If you ask again whether there is any justice in the world, you’ll have to be satisfied with the reply: Not for the time being; at any rate, not up to this Friday.”
What’s interesting about this quote is not its encapsulation of workweek ennui, but rather the way it was later borrowed by the restaurant chain T.G.I. Friday’s for an ad campaign that expressed, “The world is a void, and lacks most notably justice, unless you’re talking about buffalo wings with friends on a Friday night!”
Which bring us to this Friday night, the 13th, hands down the spookiest day of the year so far. We’re playing at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, NY with Backwords, Moonmen on the Moon, Man, and Yanqui. Click some stuff on Facebook here >
The show starts at 8pm, we’re on at 11pm, and $7 gets you in (unless you bring us a copy of the Döblin book containing the above quote AND a clamshell container of buffalo wings [provenance not important], in which case you’ll get in for free and we’ll serenade you on stage, also for free).
Cameo Gallery is located at 93 N. 6th Street in Williamsburg, in the back of the Lovin’ Cup Cafe. We hope to see you there!
