Simon Evans, husband and collaborator of our old friend Lart C. Berliner, is having a solo show this summer at Mudam Luxembourg called, "How To Be Alone When You Live With Someone". Simon and Lart will be there for the opening and the show looks fantastic so if you're in the area, you should stop by and check it out! From the museum's website: "The graphic compositions by the British artist Simon Evans combine drawings with fragments of words and relate to diaries, automatic writing, collage, lists, inventories, encyclopedias, diagrams, cartography, cosmology... The exhibition at Mudam will involve the production of new pieces."

George here (Yvonne's brother). I have been doing a music podcast for a while but this is the first full-on interview I've done. Nate Denver has illustrated and written books for La Mano and we go way back in the San Francisco music scene as well. He just completed a kickstarter project for his next illustrated book/cd "Haunted Armor", so I thought it was as good a time as any to catch up with him!
