Silber Christmas 2017

Hey Starz,

I hope all is well.  Still recovering in life here.  I replaced a big chunk of the kitchen floor due to busted water pipe & of course now new weak spots are developing around the rest of the kitchen floor.  It’s enough to make you feel like renting is a better deal than home ownership, but rebuilding things like that does kinda make me bond with the home in the same way that sleeping in the car & putting in 200,000 miles on tour with my beloved & deceased Escort made me bond with that car. Meanwhile, still dealing with the pre-school plague.  So still catching up, but we got nine Christmas releases ready now (more info below or go to or on Spotify & new music from Chvad SB, & maybe Space Sweeper & Small Life Form super soon & Azalia Snail in the new year.

The Experimental Christmas Show is an artistic communal experience created in 2008 by Adrian Wilson as part of his Maya Presents shows & expanding as an annual mini-tour across North Carolina in 2014. It’s primarily a musical event, but has incorporated & is always open to consciousness-expanding short-plays, art shows, stand-up comedy, performance art, etc. The musical expression is usually “noise” or “experimental” in nature, but with strange open ears the event has included banjo players, kora players, accordion players, trumpeters, etc. as well as musicians who have unnamable instruments of their own creation.

Dusty Tears is Jamie Smith (Danghead) & Shane de Leon (Miss Massive Snowflake).

For Dusty Tears return to Silber with Dusty Christmas, Smith & de Leon record content looping Morricone soundscapes alongside Dinosaur Jr. guitar burnings.
