Signal to Noise returns for another wall-rattling, late-night art party, activating every area of the Museum of the Moving Image once again with fresh local tunes and visualists, web video showdowns, personally tailored playlists, performed cinema, booty shaking beats, and much more. Saturday, May 7, 8:00 pm - 2:00 am in Astoria, Queens.
"The World Series of 'Tubing issues laser pointers for an evening-long augmented reality game show, Bruce McClure overwhelms the senses with live multi-projector spectacles, and Matt Wellins and Sarah Halpern time warp Ektachrome. The So So Glos dazzle with updated indie pop punk and Shark? blasts unquestionably catchy lo-fi melodies, while Holly Danger braves the visuals. Bubblyfish wields her Gameboys and The Shortsleeves bring the synth, with No Carrier on the eyecandy. Marius Watz simulates magnetic forces, and Dan Iglesia oscillates in an extra dimension. Back by popular demand, DJ $mall ¢hange holds down the dance floor, and if we still can't amuse you, AutomaticDJ knows your face and plays your favorite songs." www.movingimage.us
