I read a handful of local email newsletters for information, and I read a much smaller handful for the quality of the writing. My favorites in the latter category include Beth Comery’s weekly updates from the Monday night Scrabble club at Julian’s. I mention this because electronic experimentalist Blevin Blectum is a Scrabble player and therefore I am always up to date on where she’s playing next. The rest of this bill consists of Domestique (aka Ricky Katowicz), House Red (aka Reba Mitchell), Droplet (aka Cynthia Lech), and Public Speaking (aka Jason Anthony Harris), a Brooklyn-based musician whose new album Caress, Redact is a startling combination of looped effects and soulful wailing.
