~R.I.P. D.I.Y. / D.B.A.
RIP DBA / DEATH BY AUDIO – DEATH BY ART
along one wall ran a big selection of archival photos from the storied DEATH BY AUDIO . . nights.
a rip-paced history . . through their various venues, and stagings.
it was called: R.I.P. D.I.Y.
D.I.Y. FOREVER. amen.
because the place was surely . . a-r-o-c-k-i-n’.
EDAN WILBER and MATT CONBOY ran the DBA events – (underground) music and art.

I bet that DBA Conboy has a ton of video gold – stored away, talk about . . D.I.Y. !!
just thinking, maybe that’s one of the layers of ‘inspiration’ behind those gold ‘viruses’ that crept in all over the place, more like cubic ‘smoke’. than anything else, or anything evil. contagious, or hacked.
kind of ‘static’ but moving, as in moving in all over the place – wide open, as in ‘variable’ – site specific – art ‘music’ . . by SMHOAK, whoever you are . .
can’t keep thinking about them. such a far-out multi-layered concept.
BRIAN CHIPPENDALE – CHIPPENDALE is also very well known & respected, and indeed with great awe . . on the underground art scene for the blow-apart alternative world art works, mostly silkscreen prints and collages, and his epic narrative ‘comic books’ . . which he has shown in NYC – at CINDERS, including that flat-out feverish warning in crayon colors, of a society in meltdown . . that was shown this past summer at the big Cinders 10th Anniversary group show at the seaport, just before all hell broke loose: the three E’s . . . ebola, environmental entropy, and . . extremist militants slicing their way, in an ironic – well: tragic and sick, as in sad / twist on D.I.Y. – one journalist at a time . . onto the global game board.
rockers vs fascists, the ultimate showdown. long live the rockers.
death by art . . f-o-r-e-v-e-r.
