Doors are at 7:30, and I go on at 9pm, with SPECIAL GUESTS!

the club is all ages, too, so come one/all

Tomorrow night, sept 30, at 10:45, Careful takes the stage like taking candy from a baby, or like loss takes time, or like taking one for the team.

It’s a benefit—the money will go to support housing relief in the wake of the earthquake in Chile.

“Between bites of an indescribably cumbersome sandwich at Polonia on lower First Avenue, Eric Lindley explains the unusually intimate recording technique used on his latest album, Oh, Light. Lindley, who now records under the name Careful, tells me that the bulk of his most recent work was recorded in his girlfriend’s closet, which, with a bit of rough estimation, he says is only slightly larger than the area of the table we’re sitting at. “I literally had to push clothing aside to fit the boom for the mic; I could barely fit the neck of the guitar in there” Lindley recalls as he pensively contemplates the unwieldy comestible before him.”

ERIC LINDLEY is a bi-coastal artist/researcher/teacher, living with a foot in New York and a foot in Los Angeles. His work, ranging from critical/creative cross-genre writing, to biofeedback installation, to fluxus-style event scores, puppet-musicals, digital photography, experimentally-based research in cognitive linguistics, and electro-folk music, has appeared in/at: EOAGH, ANTENNAE, JOYLAND, The Santa Monica Museum of Art, the CUNY graduate galleries, Telic Gallery, the Veleslavasay Panorama, Machine Project, REDCAT, the Knitting Factory, the Juliard School of Music, Pianos, the Smell, The Royal College of Music (UK), STEIM (Netherlands), and many other places that his body has occupied at one point or another. He has recently finished a book-length set of narrative, semi-fictional prose-poems, as well as two full-length albums of electronic folk music—the second as “Careful,” to be released March, 2010.
