So we got a slow day over here at Driven By Boredom and what better a time to give away some free stuff. One of my friends is promoting Jimmy Edgar’s CD release party next Wednesday at Le Poisson Rouge and asked me if I wanted to give away some free tickets. I figured why the hell not right? I get to go to all sorts of shit for free, you guys might as well get to go to some free stuff too. I mean, I am just that nice of a guy. The party also features sets from Cassette NYC and The Elder Jepson. Tickets are $10 but if you email me a note asking to be in the contest I will randomly pick someone to win two tickets. Should be fun.
Heres more info:
Jimmy Edgar is a Detroit-based electronic music artist, (formerly) signed to Warp Records and now on !K7. Influenced mostly by Jazz, funk, street beat and r&b in these early years, he began his musical pursuit by playing the drums in experimental bands and by making tape recordings. Most of these recordings, consisting mainly of pitch bended tape loops, cut edits, field recordings, and noise tracks, were the beginning of his experimentation with the technical aspects of production.
Previously, Jimmy has toured and played with Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Chris Cunningham, Juan Atkins, Boys Noize, Jaime Lidell, and more.
We will also have free giveaways complimentary of KILL SHOP KILL!
