Mike Patton in Holland!

Patton to perform full-length program centered on Luciano Berio’s masterpiece, Laborintus II, on Friday, June 18.

Mike Patton is not one to shy away from experiments. Mike guest stars in a program featuring Luciano Berio’s 1965 masterpiece, Laborintus II, a modern concert chamber opera based on works by Dante, TS Eliot and Ezra Pound. Ictus, the Nederlands Kamerkoor and video-collective Visual Kitchen support Patton and his musical guests. Laborintus II mixes a whole range of musical styles, from dramatic opera to ‘60’s European jazz. After the break Patton will hold an improvisation session with a host of greats from the international jazz scene. The evening is rounded off with a steaming DJ-set inspired by Italian B-movies.

THE KIDS OF WIDNEY HIGH have their own comic book!!!!!!

The Kids generated story ideas and dialogue and teamed their stories up with a handful of amazing and innovative comic book artists.

Diamond Comics, the ONLY major distributor of U.S. comics, agreed to pick it up for distribution. Not only that, they've made it one of 7 staff picks in this month's catalog! This is pretty awesome considering that there are over 1,000 new books offered in the book.

Check it out here:

However, if they don't reach an order plateau of 1,280 copies, Diamond retains the right to not distribute the book.

The comic book was financed by the teachers/bandmembers involved with the band and all of the proceeds raised through the sales will go back to them and the band. We need everyone to order this book or ask your local comic shop for it.

To find a comic shop near you, check out the Comic Shop Locator here:

Once you've found your comic shop, the book is located on page 187 of the November 2009 issue of Previews. The order code is NOV090619. This code is important because, as I said, there are many many titles offered monthly in the catalog.
