Habit of You - a Celebration of Arthur Russell
January 14th, 2019 at 6:46pm (last year)

Subcity Radio is proud to present a series of programming to celebrate the life and work of one of the most incredible musicians that ever lived. Despite passing tragically young, Arthur managed to produce a vast catalogue of work spanning disco, avant-garde and many more. From spending time in the Talking Heads to recording Buddist chants with Allen Ginsberg, no career in music is more unique.

The series of programming will begin with the screening of the film Wild Combination (2008) at the CCA and will culminate in the broadcast of a special performance of selected works by Peter Broderick

Many thanks to our many contributors that were a part of putting this together including Phil Niblock , Tim Lawrence and Peter Broderick (https://phillniblock.com/) (http://www.timlawrence.info/) (http://www.peterbroderick.net/)
