Local chip musicians Shrimps and Wolf Calling were joined by Rochester-based PK for a stirring evening of lo-fi electronic/chip music. Playing a mix of acoustic, electric and digital musical instruments, as well as non-musical electronics pressed into musical service like Gameboys and other video game consoles, the music strives to create a modern sound from a vocabulary that sounds trapped in a simpler, earlier time in electronica. The cool music was stitched together with the help of Batsly Adams, who provided colorful visual overlays with two recoded Sega Genesis consoles…awesome event, first of its kind, and hopefully the start of something big, cool and ongoing at HST and in Geneva!
The UG Artist event on April 21st was a smashing success…great turnout for the multi-arts event that featured bands, jam sessions, video art, graffiti, face painting, fine arts sales, poetry…and a lot of people. What a great time and a great use of HST’s double storefront. Hopefully, more to come like this!
Two weeks and two fantastic shows at Headless Sullivan Theater! This Saturday (April 28), HST is hosting an evening of Lo-Fi Electronic/Chip Music featuring Geneva acts Shrimps and Wolf Calling and Rochester’s PK…and video projection art by Batsly Adams. Show starts at 7pm and the entrance is five buck. FIVE BUCKS! Less than a hoighty-toighty cup of latte. No excuses, just be there.

As producer, I get a lot of perks. Like sweeping crumbling ceiling tile dust from the stage and designing cool headless signs for our bathrooms. But I also get to watch a run through of the play even in advance of the dress rehearsal, and last night was that night. I snapped a few photos!
