Weekend, The Band

On July 23, 2013, Joe Ahearn sat down with the San Francisco-based, post-punk band Weekend to discuss the release of the group's new album, Jinx. Band members Kevin Johnson, Abe Pedroza, and Shaun Durkan talk about the day-to-day emotional and financial commitment that went into the two year project and their album's interesting artwork. The band also mentions their sense of affinity with the enigma of the 13th floor where the Clocktower Gallery resides, because their album is infused with superstitious themes. The tracks "Mirror" and "Oubliette" from Jinx are played.

Jeannie Hopper talks to Ryan Levine of The SoSo Glos about the managing company (Shamanagement) that the band share with Weekend. Levine discusses the influences behind his bands' music. The song "Sirens" from the Weekend's album Jinx is demoed.

Jeannie Hopper additionally hosts manager Asif Ahmed from Shmanagement about his work with Weekend. Ahmed discusses his beginnings with the band after the release of their first album. "July" from the Weekend's album Jinx is played.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


Clocktower Exhibits & Events is home to an archive of interviews with artists, curators, musicians, organizers, and more who have participated in Clocktower exhibitions and events throughout our organization’s history.

Many of the below recordings were documented while Clocktower was in the midst of a transformation. The original name, The Clocktower Gallery, was given to the exhibition, residency, and performance space in TriBeCa, founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After 2001, the Clocktower Gallery re-inaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of Art International Radio. In 2013, we moved on from our downtown Manhattan location, and have since renamed the organization Clocktower Productions, a title which encompasses our radio, exhibition, and event programming.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart.

NB: Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management.
