9/30: Peter Christopherson of Coil to Play Brainwaves ’08

The big news this week is over at Brainwashed: Peter Christopherson, of the now dissolved Coil, will be playing at Brainwaves 2008 as The Threshold HouseBoys Choir. Details, including price of admission, location, and schedule are available through the above links. This will be Christopherson’s first American appearance since Jhonn Balance passed away in November of 2004. The man is a living legend; he is one of the most influential modern musicians that I can think of and, after nearly 30 years of making music, he is still on the cutting edge. Do not miss seeing him perform live. It may be one of the few chances you get.

A couple of friendly reminders: Wire is playing at the Middle East Club in Cambridge, MA the 8th of October. Also, Laughter is now broadcast every TUESDAY from 10 am – noon. A few people have written and asked why my show isn’t broadcast on Monday. With every new year at Boston College comes new DJs and a new schedule. The WZBC board’s will is my command.

I, once more, have only a few selections from this show for you to hear. A more comprehensive update will be posted very soon. Please enjoy the highlights in the meantime.
