Offset Needle Radius Vs. nickname: Rebel Spring Tour Dates Announced

Offset Needle Radius Vs. nickname: Rebel

A unique opportunity to witness improvised sound structuring from two reunited veterans of D.I.Y. and underground music movements.

Joshua Baker’s Offset Needle Radius from Kittery Maine, will perform with Marc Arsenault from Nickname: Rebel of San Jose. California in a four city tour of the American Northeast. The Offset Needle Radius Vs. nickname Rebel LP will be released in June, 2009 on the Wow Cool label. Free advance CD’s with music and video will be given away at all the shows on this tour. The duo’s previous collaboration – a digital only single – Ouroboros was released March 14, 2009, and is available in all the usual places.

We will be live tweeting, blogging and otherwise documenting this strange trip. On Saturday, April 18th, we will be celebrating Record Store Day by visiting all the record stores we can find in the Albany/Schenectady/Troy area. We’ll also return to the sites of the stores we grew up with. See you soon!
