    Just a quick heads up that I’m playing a solo Felix Obelix show on Friday, March 15* at the Flanders Art Gallery in downtown Raleigh, celebrating Rachel Herrick‘s amazing two-book set “A Guide to the North American Obeast” (published by Publication Studio). This project is right in line with high-concept, altered history-making of which I’m so fond, and I’m excited to be a part of the launching of this book.  From the Flanders Art Gallery website:

    “The Museum for Obeast Conservation Studies is exhibiting in Flanders Gallery in March 2013. The Museum for Obeast Conservation Studies (MOCS) project satirizes the stigma and anxiety around obesity, using the tropes of natural history and nature conservation. The project is primarily conducted as a scientific organization that coordinates obeast field research and educates the public about the North American Obeast through museum exhibitions, videos, public events, membership, publications, and an informative website (www.obeasts.org). Peripheral components include a radical activist conservation group, as well as an anti-obeast coalition, which add controversy and depth to the narrative.”

     

    I’ll be playing songs from the old album and will be previewing some of the new ringtones from the new album (out later this year).  The book launch is at 6pm and I play from 7-8pm.  I hope to see you there!

    *Friday, March 15 is the Ides of March.  It’s also my birthday.
