My next public gig is not at a book signing or a convention, but at a nightclub with Harvest Moon and a cast of professional circus/burlesque artists. Together, we're throwing a party called SHAKEDOWN at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on December 5th. It's circus, striptease, and go-go, set to a rock and roll soundtrack. I am DJing all night plus contributing an exclusive video edit of psychedelic, cosmic imagery for the show (the club has an incredible state-of-the-art sound/visual system set up throughout the huge space) (including a dancefloor for 250+ people, 2 bars, a 7-lane bowling alley and a Blue Ribbon diner, open late). Click here for more about Harvest Moon, and here for more about Brooklyn Bowl. For my part, I am interested in contributing a 21st c. update of the old gel light show bands like Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd used in the '60s. So it is an interesting challenge-- a cartoonist/analog print artist such as myself working in sound and moving pictures--for a live event. If you're in NYC/Brooklyn on December 5th, come by. The Bowl also has a merchandise booth set up for Shakedown-- you can check out my new Homage to Crepax screenprint and T shirt if you want (proceeds of which go to CBLDF).
SHAKEDOWN is on Facebook.
Also-- we're working on a new site re-design for PULPHOPE and PAULPOPE.COM, criminally overdue, launching soon with new content, including a preview of the work for my next major book release, Battling Boy.
