Local label THIS AIN’T HEAVEN RECORDING CONCERN, owned and operated by ICT FEST founder Daniel Davis, has surpassed 100 releases in the 2 1/2 years of the label’s existence. One of the things I love about my friend Dan is that he is always thinking, and always looking for real shit happening in ICT and around the world. The result of all those thoughts is that over the next year TAHRC will launch a publishing arm, and connected to that will be quarterly label showcases, featuring bands who have current and upcoming releases on the label, plus artists, writers, filmmakers, and anyone who is making something worth looking at.
I was honored when Dan asked me to curate the first event, and I’ve put together something I’m really proud of. In collaboration with TAHRC, we’re pleased to bring you LIVING GHOST, RAW SPACE (who will be on tour in support of a new cassette via TAHRC that will be announced in the next couple of weeks), DOMESTIC DRONE, FRANCIS MOSS and SLIME FLOWER. There will be artwork in the gallery from ARMANDO MINJAREZ, HUGO ZELADA-ROMERO and MEGAN ST. CLAIR, some films will be screened by the BLUME BROTHERS (Ian and Seth) and their SPAGHETTI PARTY film collective, and there will be some short literature readings by TROY JAMES WEAVER (the co-founder of the new publishing branch of the label, TAHPC) and DAVEY MCCLAIN.
