Svenonius is coming!

His little pink book, The Psychic Soviet, was released last July, but after skipping over the west coast on his summer book tour, Ian Svenonius is finally coming around.

If you're a fellow L.A. resident:
Tuesday March 13 @ 9:30pm
Ian Svenonius reads/presents from The Psychic Soviet
DJ'ing with Ian Svenonius (DJ Name Names) & Calvin Johnson (K Records/ Beat Happening/Dub Narcotic)
Mountain Bar, 473 Gin Ling Way, Chinatown.

The rest of the tour dates are available here and will be taking place in March.

Read an interview with Ian here and consider purchasing the book, which is filled with all sorts of far-out but sharp ideas on music, politics, and even eugenics! Hey!

If you're on the opposite end of the country, you can check out Weird War, Svenonius' group with former Make-Up bandmate Michelle Mae, at the Black Cat in Washington D.C. on Mar. 10. He's a smart writer but an excellent frontman. Of course, he's also now a talk show host. Such options.

The Make-Up - C'mon Let's Spawn (from the excellent album Save Yourself)
