Art in Odd Places with Harvey Loves Harvey and Masterdisk

Art in Odd Places GraphicWe’re excited about a crazy event we’re participating in tomorrow. It’s called Live! From 14th Street! An Event from Harvey Loves Harvey. I’ll link to all the info below, but in a nutshell, there are 4 bands playing live at 14th St and 10th Ave, NYC. The audio is being beamed up to us here at the studio, and we’re going to cut it live to lacquer. Then, the lacquer disc will be sped downtown to be played on a turntable for everyone at the band site. Yeah.
