This event was held as part of Popkomm.1997, a music industry event which opened on August 15 1997, and an advertisement for the Mo' Wax events was featured in the UK music magazine Music & Media's August 16 1997 issue.
While the original postcard/flyer doesn't list DJ Shadow as appearing at the concert, and instead mentions a 'special guest', he was announced in Music & Media's Popkomm.1997 coverage, and the MWA Catalogue lists DJ Shadow as appearing.
Part 2 of the event was an art exhibition 'A Visual Review of MoWax Recordings 92-97' held at Galerie Schuppenhauer Bismarckstr, 70, 53225, Cologne which opened August 14th, then ran from August 15th until August 17th 1997. Sixty original posters were exhibited on small MDF cubes. The 60 posters were 19.5" x 19.5" and were installed on 12 wooden cubes. They featured elements of promo and commercially released artwork designed by Ben Drury with work from Will and Barney Bankhead, Giovanni Estevez, Futura, and 3D. Two films, 'A Love Supreme' by Thomas Campbell, and Liquid Liquid's 'Cavern' by Oscar Fischinger. The artwork were later released by Mo' Wax Arts (MWA) as postcard sets in CD cases, with four cards to each case.
