Chappo is announcing the completion of their new album Future Former Self with a collaborative multimedia art event. Come celebrate with the band as they lead you into a new musical world where vibrant dreams become increasingly warped, your sense of time stretches and your perception of reality unravels.
Monogold is a three piece hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Their DIY approach has enabled them to record, produce, and self release their own unique sound from their personal studio. Their 2009 EP, "We Animals," and their first full-lenght album, 2011's "The Softest Glow," continue to recive rave reviews from blogs and magazines throughout the US and abroad.
In November 2011 the band performed at the press release for Google Music in Los Angeles, performing with such artists as Busta Rhymes, Maroon 5, and Drake. They also went to Cannes in 2012 to play along side Friendly Fires and Crystal Castles on the PAntiero FEstival. At home on New York, they have played with Bear HAnds, Kyp Malone (TV On the Radio), Hot Hot Heat, ... And You will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Hooray For Earth, YACHT, and in late 2012 joined CHAPPO on a successful Midwest tour.

Benjamin Clarke is a story teller.
His drawings and paintings have an undeniable narrative quality. Also, his unique color palette and beautifully bizarre cast of characters simply grab your attention.
Benjamin graduated from Pratt Institute in 2009. He has shown his work at a variety of established galleries in the NYC and beyond, including group shows at Manhattan’s Secret Project Robot & Last Rites Gallery, White Walls Gallery in San Francisco & Brooklyn’s Ad Hoc Art.
The Tenderloin Television (TLtv) series is a psychedelic interpretation of own his heaven and hell on earth.
Clarke’s work will definitely put a somewhat disturbed smile on your face as you attempt to figure out just what these strange yet beautiful stories are really trying to reveal.
