Why are you looking at a google map street view of a church? Well, at about 7pm tonight, a bunch of us are headed to Canajoharie, New York to spend the weekend in that very church pictured to the left.
Here’s why: My neighbor plays organ and shopped around for a church with an organ suitable for his needs. He found that at the Cliff Street Church in Canajohairie, NY (About 3-4 hours North), so he bought it. I recently talked to him about having a bunch of bands up there to stay for a couple of days as we document everything via audio and film. The goal is to leave with enough material to compile some sort of video comp/documentary with live performances, interviews, and anything else we may capture. Eric (the owner) liked the idea and agreed to open his church to us for the weekend of July 1-July 3 so we can film our little documentary. It should be noted that this is not a party and not a show. The whole thing will be very focused and everyone up there will have some sort of role. Wish us luck! Click READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY for a list of confirmed bands, labels, and zines.
