S.C.E.N.E. = Salem's Chiptune, Electronica & Noise Extravaganza = all day electronic festival in Salem, MA coming Fall 2010 (that's twenty ten, not two thousand ten)
This Friday the 4th at 8pm, the FREE, all ages second promo fundraiser party for S.C.E.N.E. is going down at The Gulu Gulu in Salem, hosted/presented/organized by Radio Scotvoid and Moon Climb The Wall (both of whom will also be DJing in between sets all night). And the lineup for this is pretty fuckin sweet.
Active Knowledge's solid sweet 8bit goodness from the Cape, Bubblegum Octopus's WTF insanity from Jersey, and my personal favorite, circuit bender extraordinaire Computer At Sea from Portland (the East Coast one). Also opening up is Burlington's minimal Nuda Veritas doin her electro-acoustic thing.
Gulu might not be the first place you'd think of to check out some crazy 8bit shit, but they're super kind and brave enough to host something as cool as this. My only complaint is that there's hardly any room to get your groove on/rock/spazz out/be a total nerd if the spirit moved you because the "stage" is right next to tables. This is a restaurant after all and people want to sit, eat, and enjoy some good tunes. Maybe there will be more partiers and dancers this time. Who knows. Either way, this should be a great fuckin time and certainly worth coming out of Boston for.
Here's a short video of a book Computer At Sea made. But there's a twist! Hint: It's not just a book.
