We’re publishing these while we work on various Significant Objects-related projects about which you’ll hear more soon.

1) On June 13, Teddy Blanks is performing some songs before a screening of Tiny Furniture, a movie for which he wrote and recorded an original score. It’s a part of Rooftop Films at BAM in Brooklyn. The film will get a limited theatrical release via IFC this fall.
2) As previously noted, Ben Katchor wrote the words — and drew the drawings — for “A Checkroom Romance,” a musical tragicomedy in which “one man’s casual obsession with the architecture and culture of coat checkrooms ensnares him in a desperate struggle between employment agents, maitre ‘d’s, lovesick podiatrists, low-budget contractors, and paraphilic playboys.” Catch it on June 6 at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Mass.
