Chip Kidd’s Artbreak to Play Joe’s Pub

The wait is almost over. Artbreak, the music project destined to make Chip Kidd a rock star as well as a graphic design star, is breaking out with its live full-set debut at Joe’s Pub in New York City on Monday, August 4. Backed by Artbreakers Mars Trillion, Paul Schellack, and Dylan Wissing, Kidd will croon such New Wavey original hits-to-be as the positively infectious “Filigree” (we’re considering getting the “Know it all / SuperBall / It’s no use…” lyric tastefully tatooed on our lower extremities) and debut the Gary Nadeau-directed video for “Asymmetrical Girl.” We’ve got our tickets (buy yours here), but they’re sure to go fast as today’s New York Post reminded readers of the origins of the band’s name: “our Aug. 27, 2006, headline, ‘Artbreaking’—about famed quadriplegic artist Chuck Close‘s battle with a condo project threatening to block his studio’s sunlight.” And speaking of sunlight, if you’re in San Diego at Comic-Con, visit Kidd at the Pantheon booth, where he’s promoting his imminent Bat-Manga! book, or at the DC booth, where he’s signing copies of his Final Crisis and Trinity logo designs. And tell him UnBeige sent you!
