Little Wings this saturday night!

This Saturday night at 1 am, Little Wings will be playing a special show at the Silent Movie Theatre, following an evening of Christopher Walken (Communion! best of clips! Chris dancing!). Bring 3 bucks to throw in the hat!
If you don't know the great music of Little Wings I don't know what to say except I feel sorry for you.

In case you missed it:

Peter Relic read a story he'd composed the night before that his dad had told him about a high school sports-star who was mauled in a boxing match. It was delivered with full re-enacted action sequences. Then Douglas Messerli read a few stories about his own high school experiences, one that featured another high school sport star, who was perhaps also in the closet.

A few days later we launched Punk House, a book of photographs by Abby Banks, covering some of the shabbiest habitats across America. Foot Village played and managed to get progressively more mental, which seemed impossible after the mental level of the first second.

As if it couldn't be topped, in addition to all the art on display at the Thank You opening, DJ's Cole M.G.N., Roy Tatum, & Nathan Harrington have just been added to lull you into a false sense of security by playing everything from loft classics to all those new bassline songs Roy just downloaded, oh wow.

Peter Relic's Reading Series Begins

Arthur Magazine Presents Acclaimed Poet and Essayist Douglas Messerli reading with Writer and Rap Scholar Peter Relic
Thursday feb 7 at 8pm

Douglas Messerli is the founder, operator and editor of Green Integer Books (, a truly awesome independent publishing company that keeps in print early novels by Knut Hamsun, poetry by Ko Un, and assorted notable writings that "may appear necessary to bring society into a slight tremolo of confusion and fright at least." Which is not to say that joy and humor are not also part of his agenda. Messerli will be reading for the first time from his cultural memoir, My Year.

Peter Relic is an Arthur Magazine contributing editor. Tonight he will be conducting a dramatic reenactment of what happened inside the smoky and underlit boxing ring of the Cleveland Armory one winter night in 1956.
