Join us as we traverse through space and time during an intimate performance by the incomparable Shabazz Palaces. Shabazz Palaces (Sub Pop Records) is the critically acclaimed project of Grammy award winning artist Ishmael Butler (Digable Planets) and Zimbabwean multi-instrumentalist Tendai Maraire (Chimurenga Renaissance).

Seating is limited so don't miss out on this transcendent experience.

"And so the tale is told while surfing on the board of Shabazz Palaces, with its sturdy sort of base angled for takeoff on a new trajectory. There is new blood and space and room to be different and have different assets and different art and different ways to talk and also open up some space inside to do something new. There are pages and there are drawings, and color and faces and inked dialogues written in ancient futuristic hieroglyph. There are scales and there is melody and there are Sunny days and there is Darkness, but that—it should be noted—to the Palaceer is not a lack of illumination or brightness. Maybe it is dark, but in it is always optimism and joy, a bright darkness and a full, hopeful one as well.

It comes in gold, and it comes for the night. And so Quazarz sang the Jealous Machines. And so too did the Jealous Machines sing the Gangster Star."

This event was made possible through the support and collaboration of Guayaki Yerba Mate.

Burn All Books:
(Risograph Print Sponsor)
Our RISOGRAPH works using either a traditional copier scan bed or digitally via a parallel-to-USB cable, burning the image onto a master stencil with a thermal plate. The master stencil is then attached to a fast-rotating ink drum, which presses the ink onto the page through the stencil. Ink Drums are designated to one color at a time and our RISOGRAPH can only house a single drum, thus multi-color prints require multiple runs through the machine.
