Open Call: Party Lab Archive Storytelling

From August 5–September 10, Pioneer Books is host to the Party Lab Archive, a collection of over 300 cassette tapes from artists Joe Ahearn, James Clark and G. Lucas Crane that document nearly every performance at DIY space Silent Barn from 2009-2011.

We are looking for participants who may have been in a crowd or on stage at Silent Barn anytime between 2009–2011, to gather on August 31 from 7-9pm to share their stories, strung by fragments or woven into romantic wholes.

Stories have a 10 minutes limit, accompanied by a 5 minute tape sample. To participate, fill out this form by August 28 at 8pm. 

To jog your memory, view tapes on our Party Lab Archive Tumblr , and vote for the tapes you want to be digitized first. Maybe, you’ll find a show you were at.
