Join Dirty Looks and Dark Entries Records to celebrate the life of dance-music pioneer Patrick Cowley (1950–1982) on what would have been his 69th birthday.

Fudge, Paul Gellman, Aimee Goguen, Sarah Johnson, Mr. Drummer ’79, Mz Neon, Brontez Purnell, Beau Rice, and Sheree Rose will read from MECHANICAL FANTASY BOX—THE HOMOEROTIC JOURNAL OF PATRICK COWLEY—accompanied by music from Cowley’s gay porn soundtracks and screenings of the original videos. The evening will also feature the premiere of a double album of Cowley’s unreleased recordings.
