RVNG Intl. Presents Friends & Fiends w/ Andras

New York, 10.12.20

Are you familiar with the Alice DJ hit ‘Better off Alone’? Are you familiar with Bardcore (or ‘Tavernwave’) aka the 2020 internet phenomenon that has inspired medieval remakes of hit pop and rock songs? This mix might be for you. I thank my friend A.M. for bringing to my attention a wonderful essay by Lauren Berlant published in 2016 that evidences the song’s credibility as an anthem for “a solidarity that calls not on full subjective or affective convergence but concerted practical activity that manifests attentiveness, tenderness, respect, and pleasure.” See "The commons: Infrastructures for troubling times*, Published in Environment and Planning D: Society and Space 2016, Vol. 34(3) 393–419.
