AN UPDATE ON GETTING LISTED:
Hi Folks, we’ve decided to pare down The Week/Weekend listings to a much more condensed version for the summer months.
Why you may ask? A couple of reasons factor into it but the most important being the amount of time it takes to create the listings each week. Even with an automated system, there are hours of work to format and post correctly and although we want to support all creative endeavors in New York, there are A-LOT of them. We feel a more in-depth focus will benefit not only local events but also give us more time to focus on the increasingly wonderful creation of the 3rd volume our flagship publication, The 22 Magazine, as well as allow us to move towards future goals such as the publication of special editions like the upcoming Rule of Three.
On that note, instead of full listings we will start to narrow down the focus to specific event previews, interviews, and reviews. At the end of these listings there will be a link to the events listings page. To get on this page you must enter your event via our events input page. Listings will still come out on Thursdays, and submissions must be made by noon on the prior Wednesday to be considered.
Thanks for sticking by us during this transition, and as always with this transition comes new opportunities. If you are looking for coverage make sure to hit us up at the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com. We have varying styles and tastes and are always open to interesting ideas. If you are a writer interested in pitching an idea or writing a review please also contact at the email above and we will give you more details.
3 x 3 — A Night of Brooklyn Trios — IRON DOG / THE SOUND BATS / THE REUBEN RADDING GROUP
Where: Freddy’s Back Room
When: May 29, 8pm
Three trios, one night…Iron Dog, The Sound Bats, and The Reuben Radding Group have influences that reach from the far corners of the globe to the mysterious nether regions of the psyche. Filled with electronically manipulated organic sounds, bristly downtown punk-jazz, and traditional Balkan music – get ready for a cosmopolitan night of music that could only be Made In Brooklyn.
Also check out Stuart Popejoy’s (Iron Dog) solo show at The Firehouse Space on May 31.

by Ben Stainton
1. waking up with a cat
asleep on my face
the christmas you spiked
my dinner with hash
2.the day involving a rhinoceros
and a large box of knives
at the infamous village
fete of eighty nine
the birthday i fell into a tanker
full of sewage and dad
walked into sainsburys
to buy bleach and was killed
3.playing ice hockey
semi-naked on pills
the day a bear ate
the last of my waffles
BEN STAINTON’s poems have appeared in various places, including The Rialto, Fuselit , Poetry Salzburg Review and Stop Sharpening Your Knives. His experimental pamphlet, The Backlists, is available from The Knives Forks and Spoons Press.

Launa Eddy is a sculptor and jewelry maker living in Brooklyn. We were introduced to her via 3rd Ward and inspired by her collabs with Daniel Olshansky, Dinosaur Feathers, and most of all her interesting background. We asked her to elaborate on her timber wolf/lobster-catching youth and tell about some of her current work.
The 22 Magazine: Can you tell me a little about where you are from in Rhode Island, working on a lobster boat and about raising timber wolves ?
Launa Eddy: We lived in Richmond until I was ten, when the state of Rhode Island told us we couldn’t have wolves and gave us an ultimatum – get rid of them, or move out. So we moved to New Hampshire, the Live Free or Die state – my dad continued to run [his] lobster boat between Rhode Island and New Hampshire. While in Rhode Island I spent most of my time off of Point Judith in Narraganset, where most of my family worked as commercial fishermen/women. I spent a lot of time on the boats and the docks growing up – and I actually started working on my father’s boat when I was around eight or nine years old. I would go out with them on fishing trips in the summer and I was their ‘bander’ – I put the rubber bands on the lobster claws and prepped them to be put in the storage tanks on the boat. It was a hard job and being out at sea for three days in all sorts of weather was intense, and eventually when I was sixteen I decided I wasn’t up for the job anymore… mostly because I was prone to sea sickness.When I wasn’t working on the boat, I was often trying to catch fish on the docks, and occasionally I got together with the other fisherman’s kids and we did silly things like arrange lobster and crab races. We’d gamble for curiosities we found on our families boats. Starfish, shells, weird creatures. Everyone would bring a box of things they found and put it in the pot for whoever won the race. As you can imagine, lobsters don’t race very well, and crabs are insane and run all over the place, so it was all very silly. The wolves were pure bred Alaskan timber wolves – my father went to Alaska for a trip to meet a painter who also ran a wolf rescue, and came back with two wolf pups. We named them Sinbad and Sheba, and built them an eight foot tall cage twice the size of our house (it was pretty much a caged off section of forest) and a sweet little dog house inside of it with two stories and Plexiglas windows and a ramp so they could chill on the roof. They had it good.

PERFORMANCY FORUM is a monthly exhibition and thinktank revolving around post-product performance work, including music, theater, dance, video, installation, action, and all that exists in between these mediums. Events are structured around the needs of the artists, creating spectator/artist relationships, participation frameworks, and platforms that allow the work to operate in an intentional manner. Past PERFORMANCY FORUMS have addressed female authorship, the roots of performance art, map-based music, and found materials…new curators, collaborations with collectives and other groups, and artists are always welcome. Full list of PERFORMANCY FORUM artists is on its way…
SATURDAY NIGHT: MARCH 5, 7PM-1AM performances. Suggested donation $5
SUNDAY AFTERNOON: MARCH 6, 2PM-6PM. open house with installations by Alejandro Acierto and Ivy Castellanos
