    I'll be in beige shorts, a black/gray short sleeve button down shirt, and wearing black-framed glasses.

    Mark McGuire put on a really good, if somewhat disjointed, show. One long song that was more comprised of movements than truly would together, with a VHS that he had made backing him visually. The sounds were very Emeralds-lite, and well done. I liked him.

    Infinite Body was more cohesive and song-oriented than I've ever seen him. He did some very dubbed-out vocals over tracks that retained some of his peaceful ambience while introducing fuzzier tones and even some suggestions of a beat. It was just him, like I've seen him before, but it was a bigger sounding show. I quite liked it.

    Jeff Wirschter and Matthew Sullivan did a joint laptop set that expanded on the last few Rene Hell sets I've seen. It was super jarring digital noise stuff, but Sullivan added some rhythm to the proceedings. They had no visuals, and it seemed as if they were doing things in a very improvised fashion, as they kept talking back and forth during the set. It was brutally loud and harsh, but the beats made it more active than the last Rene Hell set. It was pretty killer.

    Sean McCann did a very similar set to his last one: big, slow moving visuals with beautiful ambient keyboard tracks and some tape loops. He went for about 30 minutes, which was longer than I'm used to, and it all sounded blissful. I really enjoyed it, but it sits with Mark McGuire as the least artistically adventurous of the acts.

    And then there's M. Geddes Gendras. I saved him for last because he was the best. He did his analog synth and video combo again. This time the video focused around the android-gymnast Makayla McKenzie doing the vault. He made an incredibly loud and churning synth piece over it, with some great melodies as well as electronic obfuscation and pure white noise blasts. He did at least 30 minutes of music and was absolutely stunning the whole time. His last set was my surprise favorite, and this one was even better. The guy is doing great shit and worth listening to.

    Well, it did go SUPER late (I think we were out of there around 2:15) and it was really hot, but long story short you fucked up. It was a pretty great night.

    Yep. I agree with what Bryan wrote about the event. I really liked all the artists, but Geddes blew me away. I bought some of his tapes online as soon as I got home. Also, really nice meeting you Bryan.

    Schoolofruckus. don't fuck up twice: make it out to see William Basinksi this Sat.

    Yeah, I had a good time last night too. OPN was probably my favorite of the three, but Rene Hell's short set was pretty enjoyable as well. Good hanging out with TallGuy and Icey, and it was nice to meet schoolofruckus as well!

    It was just him with sitting on a stool with a laptop; he played for about 25 minutes, and it was very, very noisy - lots of awesomely weird tones, textures, panning effects, etc.. Paul could probably give you a better idea of what it sounded like, but he did say he recognized a little bit from his set on Saturday.

    It had some similarities to what we saw at the Catnip a few months ago, but there was an underlying current holding it altogether that that show didn't have. I liked it.

    He had a laptop, that's all I remember seeing.

    Ok, sounds like he's continuing with the stuff he's been doing then. How about OPN? What was that set up?

    A laptop and a few pads (I'm clueless in regards to what those are called and what they actually do).

    His set was very Replica-heavy, a lot more variety than the set we saw in '10. That set I seem to remember being rather subtle and minimal (and a set where he was ultimately outshined by Sun Araw), and this was very noisy, even disjointed at times, and he threw in a few bangers too that were fun. The openers were good, but OPN was the highlight this time.

    Ugh... sounds like a good one. Second time I've had a ticket for him and didn't want to drive up there. One of these days I'll see OPN.

    I thought Rene Hell was the best of the bunch, but I'd also never listened to Replica and like OPN mostly for Returnal and the Rifts anthology. Bryan, I'm not very good about tlking about music (probably because I've never read about music much) so I can't go very in-depth but I thought Jeff's set was more pure noise this time. The percussive elements and sense of improvisation were absent (which makes sense since he was solo and not collaborating with Matthew Sullivan) and instead we had a completely continuous, abrasive yet somehow warm, enveloping of noise for 25 minutes. He really benefitted from the Echo's sound system; his set felt powerful and immersive.

    And yes, I recognized small samples or pieces of what we heard Saturday in his set last night, but they were used differently.

    Absolutely. There were moments where he singled out the left and right speakers, and it gave it a surround sound effect. Really cool.
