publiccollectors:

Chicago, and visitors to this city: Mark your calendars for this upcoming Public Collectors exhibition devoted to Malachi Ritscher (previously shown at the 2014 Whitney Biennial). In addition to the exhibit at Experimental Sound Studio’s Audible Gallery, there will be a great panel discussion and performance at the Comfort Station in Logan Square. Hope to see you at one event or both! The free booklet that was made for this exhibition can be downloaded here.

||| WHEEL to REEL ||| Tim Zawada, live analog mixtape production at Sportsman’s Club 9/25/14

The reel shelf at Sportsman’s Club is starting to bow a bit (our tape weighs a ton). There’s been 8 archive entries through the Wheel to Reel series, where we’ve been having a ball documenting the taste and timbre of Chicago record collectors LIVE from vinyl discs to polyester tape. For this next round we’re featuring Tim Zawada, a proper disc jockey known to locals as a member of the Boog E. Munsters crew and founder of DIY dance record label Tugboat Edits.

Please join us on Thursday September 25th 2014 at 10pm sharp as 3 hours worth of vinyl selections are DJ’d by Tim Zawada and simultaneously captured to 4-track tape via the bar’s vintage audio system.
