We were invited to play artist Peter Coffin's greenhouse installtion. He's one of the few younger contemporary artists I can stand behind. So, it's quite an honor really. Here's the twist; it's on view in the lobby of the UBS (United Bank of Switzerland) building in the heart of midtown Manhattan. And we played during the lunch hour. This building is a major finacial institution. Pretty serious stuff. As one can imagine, our performance created quite a distubance. Thanks so much to all who took the time to attend.

Last week we played a last minute show in Chris Johansen's incredible installation at Deitch Projects. Possibly titled "Totalities" for being totally awesome. These photos were taken by the talented Cheryl Dunn.

Away We Go!

This weekend Silk FLowers and City Center embarked on an epic journey to Baltimore, Providence, and SUNY Purchase.

These guys really help us all out in our lives.

A machine powered by tea!

Eyes as blue and deep as the ocean

We found time on our way to Providence to wage a protest against junk food. Eat your veges or we'll eat you!

Tres pelivosos

We loitered the fuck out of this super market in CT.

Night Shades!

In Providence our gracious host Ben (Rainbro) prepared a delicious meal. Vege chili, home made bread, and a can of beer. I thought I was back in the old country.

We watched Halloween and I must say, at the risk of being ostricised by the community, it was kinda boring.

This is Fred Thomas AKA City Center AKA Saturday Looks Good To Me. If you've never heard his music you are deeply asleep and must wake from your slumber. I have a lot of respect for him and his "back to basics" approach with his latest project City Center. Rather than capitalise on the noteriety of his former bands to be able to play bigger venues the man is shown here, on his knees in white mind you, performing in a damp basement in Providence, Rhode Island. He has also pressed his own 7", which totally rules!
