W/N W/N always seemed to be ahead of its time. It debuted on the corner of 10th and Spring Garden Streets in 2014 — crowdfunded into existence as a cooperatively owned coffee shop and bar in slow-developing Callowhill (a neighborhood nicknamed “Eraserhood” after David Lynch made its empty, post-industrial eeriness famous in his ’70s horror flick, Eraserhead). It was one of the city’s first all-day cafés way before all-day cafés were everywhere. It gave Detroit-style pizza a home in Philly way before Detroit-style pizza was everywhere (Pizza Gutt is opening a shop in Kensington, by the way). It was a hybrid coffee bar way before hybrid coffee bars were everywhere. Former co-owner Michael Dunican says that while the ownership structure never changed from the bar’s inception, “the only lasting truth is Change. It was time for a change.”
Chinatown North? Callowhill? Spring Arts? Loft District? Eraserhood? In a neighborhood that can’t agree on what it should be called, how will they decide who, if anyone, should have the power to tax and spend in the name of business and community development?Source: For Callowhill Neighborhood, Whose BIDing Will Be Done? | Hidden City Philadelphia

Three weeks after the third season of Twin Peaks concluded in September 2017, a unique audiovisual tribute to its director was presented by the Russian underground label kultFRONT at the Angleterre Cinema Lounge in the very heart of St. Petersburg. The night’s dark electronic music was distilled from kultFRONT’s previously released David Lynch tribute compilations, The Owls Are Not What They Seem and Now It’s Dark, while visuals sourced from Twin Peaks among other things were manipulated in real-time by VJ Yuri Elik and projected on a big screen.
Today, the label is sharing the recording of that performance with the world; ELECTRICITY: David Lynch Tribute Live is now available on a limited edition cassette and as a digital download. The edition is supplemented with a bonus track, a remix by Svetlo111 on the track “Lynch” by DMT, which kicked off the Russian David Lynch Tribute 10 years ago.Source: Russian Sound Experimentalists KultFRONT Present “ELECTRICITY: David Lynch Tribute Live”
