On the eve of Negativland's 20th anniversary as a group, they embark upon
their first national live tour in seven years.....

Tour dates and radio spot links are at the end of this


Negativland is about to call it quits. One member is now in
federal prison for hacking into classified DieCorp think tank
documents. Another has become a Native American casino
consultant in the Southwest and wants nothing more to do with "low
paying alternative music." The band's drummer recently gave up
sticks and skins for a more lucrative life of insider day trading. The
Weatherman now installs customer satisfaction monitoring
equipment full-time for Global Cable, Inc. and has no further desire
to "create" anything. Crosley Bendix, the group's longtime senior
mentor and cultural advisor, has left the United States for good to
spend his twilight years at a mechanical drawing table interpreting
crop circle formations for MI5 in England. His final words on these
shores were, "music is basically dead. I'm not going to waste any
more time on it." It looks like the slow, agonizing demise of
Negativland has finally reached fruition after so many years of


Well, like everything else you have to read these days, it's difficult to
tell. There may be some grains of truth in the above "information,"
but where exactly are those grains located? (Answer available only
from Negativland's currently-out-of-business address.) The only
truth you can be sure of is that nothing characterizes our
over-informationalized society more than our collective inability to
personally verify anything. And the spinning just keeps spinning

As so called "culture jammers", the group known as Negativland has
for many years held a mirror up to the media world, broken it, and
shuffled the pieces back into very different shapes. So it is fitting
that, perhaps for the last time (believe it or not), Negativland now
returns to the highways of America with a live performance about
modern info-life and its many confusions.

Negativland's 20th Anniversary TRUE/FALSE tour (and first
nationwide tour in seven years) celebrates the group's first two
decades of musical observations and sticky lawsuits with a
millennial concert lasting over two and a half hours, including a great
deal of never-before-heard material, as well as a few reworked
"tunes" from their twenty years of recordings. Rounding out this
over-stimulating evening of entertainment is an elaborately collaged
brew of film, video and slides, an actual puppet show appropriate for
all ages, and the first national appearance of longtime Negativland
collaborator, Pastor Dick.

Expect to remain seated for maximum absorption during this long,
densely- packed performance, designed to help you to discern
