IMPERMANENT PROJECT 003
OTHER GIGS



BESIDES OUR FIRST BIG SHOW AND THE 'I HATE MONDAYS' SERIES, IMPERMANENT PROJECTS OCCASIONALLY DIPS ITS SPINDLY FINGERS INTO THE ARENA OF LIVE MUSIC PROMOTION IN A LESS ENUMERATED, MORE SPORADIC FASHION. FLIERS FOR THESE SHOWS CAN BE SEEN ABOVE. ASIDE FROM THE FIRST SHOW OF THIS KIND (A FLETCHER TUCKER/PULSE EMITTER + J. MORALES/SKIN LIES SHOW WHICH TOOK PLACE AT LEAVEN COMMUNITY CENTER ON 10.15.2017, SIMPLY DENOTED AS '003'), THESE EVENTS ARE USUALLY NOT GIVEN AN EVENT-SPECIFIC CATALOG NUMBER.



IMPERMANENT PROJECT 002
I HATE MONDAYS








THE 'I HATE MONDAYS' SERIES HAPPENED THE SECOND MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH FOR NINE NIGH-CONSECUTIVE MONTHS (WE SKIPPED MAY 2018 TO MAKE ROOM FOR CLEVELAND ART-PUNK LEGENDS X_X) AT OUR FAVORITE LOCAL VENUE (AND DUSTIN'S FORMER WORKPLACE) TURN! TURN! TURN!. THOUGH SOME MONTHS WERE MORE HAPHAZARD THAN OTHERS (LAST-MINUTE ADDITIONS/SUBTRACTIONS WHICH OCCURRED AFTER FLIER PRODUCTION ARE DETAILED BELOW), WE'RE STILL PROUD OVERALL OF HOW IT WENT OFF.

002.1: DON GERO CANCELED, REPLACED BY AN AUDIOVISUAL PERFORMANCE BY COLIN MANNING AND THE OCCUPANT (SHANE MCDONNELL).

002.2: GEOLOGICAL CREEP AND MIDORI HIROSE CANCELED, REPLACED BY D°RIFLE AND CASPAR SONNET.

002.4: THE "ONE MORE SURPRISE" WAS A SCREENING OF EXPERIMENTAL SHORTS BY OUR OWN MICAH VANDERHOOF.



IMPERMANENT PROJECT 001
CHARLES MANIER (LIVE SHOW)



WHEN WE DECIDED TO LAUNCH IMPERMANENT PROJECTS IN 2017, IT WAS IMPORTANT TO BOTH OF US THAT IT WAS CLEAR FROM THE OUTSET THAT WE WEREN'T "JUST" A RECORD LABEL. WITH THAT IN MIND, OUR FIRST PROJECT, AND CATALOG NUMBER, WAS A LIVE SHOW. WE BROUGHT IN MERCURIAL MODERN ELECTRONIC BODY MUSIC PERFORMER CHARLES MANIER (AKA TADD MULLINIX, THE MULTI-FACETED ARTIST ALSO KNOWN AS DABRYE, JTC, X-ALTERA, AND ALSO HEAD OF THE EXCELLENT BOPSIDE LABEL). IT FELT LIKE QUITE AN AUSPICIOUS START.

SADLY, DUE TO A LAST-MINUTE SNAFU, THE FLIER IS PARTIALLY INACCURATE. WHILE HAMMER/SICKLE DID INDEED PLAY, ASSS WAS ACTUALLY REPLACED AT THE LAST MINUTE BY HALF OF THEIR LINEUP, ALEX IAN SMITH, DOING A SOLO SET.



ABOUT IMPERMANENT PROJECTS

IMPERMANENT PROJECTS IS A RECORD LABEL, DESIGN HOUSE, MUSIC AND FILM PROMOTER, AND APPAREL OPERATION ("SOUNDS | LOOKS | GIGS | TOGS") FOUNDED IN PORTLAND, OREGON IN 2017 BY JOURNALIST/DESIGNER/DJ DUSTIN KRCATOVICH AND EXPERIMENTAL FILMMAKER MICAH VANDERHOOF. TAKEN AS A WHOLE, WE VIEW THE PROJECTS DETAILED HERE AS PART OF A "PSYCHEDELIC LIFESTYLE ENHANCEMENT CONCERN". OUR GOAL IS THE REVEALING OF THE SOUL, AND THE EXPANSION OF THE MIND.

ART — MOST ESPECIALLY THE MASS-PRODUCED SIMULACRA OF ART — IS UNAVOIDABLY A WASTEFUL AND DESTRUCTIVE INDUSTRY, AND AS OF THIS WRITING, WE'RE ONLY NOMINALLY DIFFERENT. STILL, IF AN ARTWORK EXPANDS THE VISTAS OF THE MIND, AIDING THE CREATION OF NEW WAYS OF THINKING AND DOING, WE FEEL THAT THIS IS ULTIMATELY WORKING AGAINST THE AFOREMENTIONED WASTE AND DESTRUCTION, AND THUS AT LEAST PARTIALLY JUSTIFIED. WE'RE LESS PROLIFIC THAN SOME LABELS BECAUSE WE DON'T TAKE WASTE LIGHTLY.

THOUGH TRANSIENCE IS ACKNOWLEDGED IN OUR NAME, AND THAT ACKNOWLEDGMENT IS ALSO PART OF OUR MISSION, WE HOPE TO CREATE WORK OF LASTING QUALITY WITH EVERY IMPERMANENT PROJECT. ALL THINGS WILL RETURN TO DUST, BUT IN THE SHORT RUN, WE AIM FOR THE CULTURAL CONVERSATION, NOT THE TRASH HEAP.




IMPERMANENT PROJECTS IS ALSO THE PARENT ORGANIZATION FOR THESE ONGOING, UNENUMERATED PROJECTS:





SOCIAL MEDIA IS AWFUL, BUT IT MAKES IT EASIER TO KEEP YOU UPDATED.
