  • Los Angeles, CA—Harper Simon has announced plans to embark on a summer tour beginning in August, that will include a string of dates in major cities including San Diego, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Brooklyn, NY and Toronto, ON. The tour will continue to support Simon's critically acclaimed sophomore album DIVISION STREET which released in the US on March 13th to critical praise.

    DIVISION STREET was hailed by Rolling Stone as "pop-rock that stands on its own and then some" and People Magazine as "dreamy." The 10-track album set was produced by Simon and Tom Rothrock (Elliott Smith, Beck), and was recorded with a small coterie of guest musicians—including Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello's Attractions on drums, Nikolai Fraiture from the Strokes on bass, vocals by Inara George, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on synths, as well as Nate Walcott from Bright Eyes and Wilco's Mikael Jorgensen.

  • Precursor is a preliminary study into a new dimension of visual stimulation, and the focus of Analog Preservation Network's Drake Lab residency, which will run from August 11 to 25.

    APN has come together to construct an experimental multi-layered screen interface for live analog projections. This platform will become the space for visual experimentation and performance enhancement. Musicians, dancers and artists will be invited to the Drake Lab to collaborate in the production of performances that incorporate interactive lighting and visuals within the Portable Analog Laboratory.

    With APN's Aug 11-25 residency coming to a close, stop by to sing some tunes and experience the APN's Portable Analog Laboratory in action as the collective celebrates the end of their residency.
