The drone won't stop for 10 hours. Drop in, zone out, play some games. Cover is $10.

New Cinema Club picks up where the old CC left off, as both a real world showcase and an online platform for inspiring contemporary cinema. While based in New York City, we welcome films from all over.

A supergroup born of Brooklyn’s early 21st century DIY scene, Jäh Division’s sole 2004 12-inch Dub Will Tear Us Apart earned them an instant infamy for their psychedelic dub interpretations of Joy Division classics. Featuring members of Home and Oneida and recorded in the literal shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge, Jäh Division grew from a joke between roommates Brad Truax and Barry London into a rolling improv collective that included members of Animal Collective and Oneida, among others.
Expanded with 5 extra songs--3 from the original session, 2 from a scrapped album--Dub Will Tear Us Apart… Again is the sound of Manchester beamed into Brooklyn by way of the Black Ark, all linked by some intercosmic hook-up in the depths of Barry London's Space Echo tape loop. Recorded by the core Jäh Division quartet, the original release--part of Social Registry’s 12-inch series-- featured London on vintage keyboards, Truax on bass, Home’s Chris Millstein on drums, and Oneida’s Kid Millions on Barry’s collection of synth percussion, including trash-salvaged electronic drum pads, run through dubby delays and effects and a Farfisa reverb tank.
Residents of free103point9--a combination micro-casting FM radio station, performance space, and residential loft with back windows overlooking the Williamsburg Bridge's Brooklyn-side descent--Brad and Barry had real bands with real ambitions. Both had spent months sweating hard hours over albums with Home and Dan Melchior's Broke Revue -- both albums destined to remain never-properly-released after falling into wormholes of music biz malarkey. Jäh Division was, as the original 12-inch label put it, "a good smoke and a joke." But it quickly became much more.
Drafting in Home drummer Chris Millstein on the night of their first show, and Oneida drummer Kid Millions shortly thereafter, Jäh Division found its expression in London's collection of strange and/or vintage gear, from the Roland RS-09 that triggered the original joke to the Realistic Concertmate MG-1, a Moog once sold at Radio Shack. Recorded by London on a reel-to-reel, the one-day session in the free103point9 performance space is the sound of Williamsburg just as the mania began. Jäh Division became an on-call North Brooklyn party band featuring the core quartet, plus rotating pals from Oneida, Animal Collective, Awesome Color, White Magic, and almost always a guy named Stony Tony on the congas.
A second session at Oneida's Ocropolis studio featuring a London/Truax/Millions trio never yielded a proposed full-length, and the band's attendant parts eventually got too busy to heed Jäh's call more than once in a while. Never officially disbanding, either, the live iteration would continue to convene every year or three, though rarely with the full core quartet. Dripping, weird, and ricocheting, Dub Will Tear Us Apart… Again is a document of four serious musicians staying true to their instincts in the face of extreme absurdity. Get irie, get spooked, and conjure Jäh Division again now from their component vibrations.

Please join The Baffler for an evening of music, readings, and conversation as we celebrate our first issue of 2019, Pilgrim’s Regress, and inaugurate THE BAD SOCIETY, our new series of concerts and talks for the disaffected and generally pissed-off.
What better soundtrack for the occasion than anti-racist, anti-capitalist feminist post-punk ensemble Gauche? Traveling from Washington, D.C., for the occasion, the trio of Mary Jane Regalado, Daniele Yandel, and Jason Barnett plus a cast of collaborators will play songs from their 2015 Sister Polygon EP as well as their forthcoming debut full-length. As Gauche put it themselves, the songs are like “a manifesto in the form of mythology; each song a new myth, a new possibility for existence within alienating and consumerist society.”
Joining Gauche are The Sediment Club, advocates of explosive no-wave and raw chaos for over a decade now. Their latest full-length Stucco Thieves reflects on “human bankruptcy” in America with nods against general greediness and crumbling infrastructure. NYC legend ALICE COHEN & THE CHANNEL 14 WEATHER TEAM, known for intricately layered, visual experimental pop, will play with her live band; Cohen’s exceptional 2016 full-length, her fifth solo record, meditates on escapism, identity, and consumer culture’s “churches of holy desire.”
In The Baffler’s ongoing tradition of joining left-wing political criticism with cultural analysis, merging the worlds of writing and music, the evening will also feature readings by Baffler contributors Lauren Oyler and Kate Wagner, who will discuss the theme of our new issue—the myth of progress. Commodify your dissent for the bargain price of $12 per ticket or $32 for a special ticket-plus-magazine-subscription deal. And as usual, Baffler subscribers can expect some free beverages.
