New Museum presents a wearable MP3 button to help you Get Weird
The New Museum is celebrating the fifth anniversary of their monthly Get Weird music series by offering up a wearable MP3 button, which you must admit, the idea of a wearable MP3 button in and of itself is pretty weird, right? Well played, New Museum.
The button contains live recordings taken directly from the New Museum's soundboard, and features any number of artists that yours truly spent his college years watching in warehouses, basements, and art galleries when he should've been writing papers (just kidding, Mom!). The talent includes Animal Collective's Deakin, Eric Copeland of Black Dice, Kria Brekkan, Lexie Mountain Boys, High Places, No Age, and of course, Andrew W.K.
Artwork for the button, which comes in a limited edition of 500, was designed by Brendan Fowler (a.k.a. BARR), and all proceeds will go directly to supporting the New Museum and it's programming, thus ensuring that future generations of suburban weirdos get their experimental music fix once they decamp to the big city in pursuit of a useless degree.
