READING & FILM - Galaxie 500's Damon Krukowski
DAMON KRUKOWSKI (Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi) reads from his new book, TheMemory Theater Burned. Damon Krukowski is the co-founder and editor of Exact Change, a Surrealist press located in Boston. A founding member of Galaxie 500, he currently records with Naomi Yang as Damon and Naomi. He will read from his book of prose poetry, "The Memory Theater Burned." In these lines, Damon Krukowski often attempts to state the obvious. But truth is elusive, and Krukowski's poems also bear the record of the difficulties he encountered in its pursuit.

Films that Rock! "Burn to Shine" & "Lovitt Transmissions"
Burn to Shine is a film that takes place on one day in a house that no longer exists. Filmmakers Brendan Canty and Christoph Green used the house to film Q and Not U, Medications, Garland of Hours, French Toast, Ted Leo,Weird War, The Evens, and Bob Mould playing their music live in the living room. Very simple and beautiful.
