Sunday May 8 (11:30 AM - 10:00 PM)
Begun by Keith “Deacon Johnson” Moore (son of local R&B legend Deacon John) NOizeFest, though not really a concert per say, is in many ways the antidote to JazzFest. It is a festival of wild, untraditional music that many people would not consider music at all. Bring an instrument. The event is FREE, with cheap booze and food. Kids definitely welcome (three of our scheduled acts are parent/child duos). The list of performers so far:
Mikronaut (tape techno)
The Bongoloids (classy sax version)
MC Tracheotomy (odd rap and snowballs)
The Guilt Of… (mike ix williams + ryan mckern)
Helen Gillet and Mark Southerland (first place)
MC Koan (from EOE),
Naughty Palace (the brothers Davis of Glorybee)
DJ Quintron (plebian record spinner)
Dummy Dumpster (performance punk)
Rob Cambre (guitar)
City of Hungry Ghosts vs. BeatImprint (via Austin)
FROGINOMICON (jackie mang)
HeAndHisGhost (david bear)
Bunny and Buggy (father/daughter noise)
Josh Cohen and Big Freddie Gong (crystal bowls)
Proud Father (um?)
Planklength [feat Donald Miller] (treated guitar and synth)

Monday means free music this week- this is my new discovery of more music I missed. I bet you missed it too, so now is your chance to grab it. At times reminiscent of caribou or bibio, it floats in its own hazy space. Vocal pop, hazy sounds, sun drenched guitar loops- enjoy this. it is beautiful, distorted and gorgeous. You'll hear me play the song below in live sets.
This description from 12rec. is says it all better than I could-
What we get to hear on "IN FRAME" is a mixture from Hip Hop beats, quixotic Pop melodies and precisely these mesmerizing Postrock motives I was fond of with "TESAURUS" already. The whole production is dense and warm and full of details and influences. Neo-Krautrock acts like Fujiya & Miyagi, To Rococo Rot or Caribou might spring in mind and especially in combination with GALUNs' decent vocal performance, the solo works of Thom Yorke have to be cited.
this is the pop I've been looking for this week. You can download the album free, courtesy of 12rec. here.
Okay- Go listen. I think this album will get me through the week. I would love to know more about the MONOKLE- so far I know that he or thy are Russian. Is everything I like these days from Russia or L.A.? Seems that way...

This one is different- it falls firmly into art, music, bass, and culture each as a category. What is it? It's a free album basically remixing the entirety of Stravinsky's Rites Of Spring. Stravinsky's work was controversial and inflammatory when it premiered- and as is appropriate for such a piece, this remix and reconceptualization will probably upset some Stravinsky fans. I'm firmly supportive of this- the first 2 tracks will likely make it into some of my live sets. I feel a satisfaction with including a significant work of 20th century music in my own explorations. Even Ornette Coleman quoted melodic phrases from the intro when he performed last fall... this work has everyone listening, sampling, and reimagining the way it is heard and presented. See if it means anything to you. listen to it in parts or as a whole. Whatever you do, enjoy it. Tettix gives it to you freely.
Get the album!
