This looks a lot like the Empire State building an a heroin needle

I’m still processing my visit to New York (my honeymoon) and especially the Whitney (2x ) and discovery of David Woj and his band 3 Teens Kill 4 — this is a video posted by band member Jesse Hultberg — apparently some of the other 3TK4 stuff is after David left the band, duly noted. And they played the Whitney in conjunction with the show, which we barely caught (it left that weekend — we saw it on a Thursday and a Friday). The band sounds like a cross between Talking Heads and Negativland (use of samples). The name is found object / dada — a tabloid headline about a murder.

There’s another video of a New Years show in 1986, but David might have left band by then. But I think the band is interesting post-Woj.

the second half is just a pun on the amazing Israeli goalie “Harush” — no first name needed –who led Eretz Israel to wins over Albania and Scotland. (That, plus the true fact that there was a small fire on the 16th floor of Ian Schrager’s PUBLIC hotel on Sunday, Sept. 30. )

And somewhere in here I need a discussion of two slang terms new to me: “that’s the tea, sis” and “so extra”. My neighbor claims her daughter says these things. It reminds me of a t-shirt worn by staffer at New Museum Sarah Lucas show that claimed that all slang derives from Gay Black Culture or something, i’m paraphrasing. It would be fun to track this down.

There is also a New Yorker article about the David Wojnarowicz show — on my bucket list is learning how to spell his name.

It will be interesting if the show gives life to the band comeback.
