Station to Station Event
Station to Station is, in the project's own words, "a public art project made possible by Levi's." Basically, for 3 weeks in September, a train full of artists and musicians will be traveling cross-country and stopping to perform in 9 cities across America. The train will start its journey in NYC and end its journey in Oakland, CA. From what we can tell, this is going to be a crazy interesting undertaking.
While the general public can't ride on the train themselves, they're able to buy tickets to any of the scheduled stops for $25 each. Some of the artists scheduled to perform are Beck, Cat Power, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Savages, Cold Cave, Dan Deacon, Twin Shadow, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, as well as many, many more. To check out all the stops and artists involved, head on over to the Station to Station about page! And then let me know if you can figure out if Beck will be on the same train as Dan Deacon for 3 weeks because, like, think of all the adventures they would have. —Katie
