Alternatilla is the big deal this summer, yet despite massive names like Devotchka and Daniel Johnston, there is no one more qualified to absolutely take it over than Tav Falco. Judging from the event program that's just what he's done.
This years' Alternatilla theme is light and Tav Falco's is La Luna Negra. All we can say is check out the website, www.alternatilla.com and if you're in Italy this week, see Tav Falco photo's, (50 of them), hear Tav Falco's music (he's performing live), and watch Tav Falco films, (in the presence of the artist).
If it wasn't for Alternatilla, really, the summer would be a lot longer.
Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
