Welcome to our tumblr

Can’t ignore the tremendous emotion in this photograph. I wanted to post this with a track that was suitable backing music, but I feel like juxtaposing a relationship-oriented pop song against this would be a bit disrespectful.

Powerful photos capture the student protests in Mexico barely anyone is talking about 

While the world has focused its attention on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, there’s another student movement gaining steam on the other side of the world.

The unfolding protests gripping Mexico began in the small town of Iguala, in the southwest region of Guerrero state, where the disappearance of 43 student teachers on the night of Sept. 26 has sparked outrage amid allegations of collaboration between local police and organized crime.

Check the Guardian for more information on the protests, their purpose, and government inaction in the face of the kidnapping of 43 student teachers during an earlier protest in September.

The Warhol Museum, as part of its 20th anniversary celebration and in tandem with the Brooklyn Academy of Music and UCLA, is hosting a night of previously unscreened Warhol shorts dubbed Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films. The exhibition will feature live performances of new tracks specially written for the films from some heavy hitters, including Martin Rev (of Suicide), Tom Verlaine (of Television), Dean Wareham (of Galaxie 500), Eleanor Friedberger (of Fiery Furnaces), and the prolific Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound).

Tickets are a little on the steep side - around $30 once you count the fees etc. (thanks Ticketmaster) - but with this line-up and the Warhol hosting, it should be worth it. FYI - the Warhol is hosting BUT the exhibition is taking place at the Carnegie Music Hall - NOT at the Warhol. Tickets and full information here.

And now a track from Deerhunter…because they are tangentially related to this post and I enjoy their music.
