Monday, February 8 - Sunday, February 14
If you haven't heard of this yet, you're living under a rock. Boston's got the biggest bestest electronic festival going down this week. Tons of awesomeness like DJ/Rupture, Sinden, Phantogram, and Neon Indian happening all over the place but there's 3 events I'm especially looking forward to. First is Tim Hecker, Mountains, and David Daniell at the Cambridge YMCA on Thursday. Then there's the FREE chiptune showcase on Friday at MassArt's Pozen Center with Animalstyle, Disasterpeace, Cathode Rays, Active Knowledge, Br1ght Pr1mate, and Radio Scotvoid DJing with visuals and lasers from VJ Beyonder. And finally there's the killer BOWAAC early (3pm) all ages Saturday show with Big Digits, Truman Peyote, Coralcola, Many Mansions, Wet Bandits (Ryan Durkin & Evaredy), and Dutty Artz for only 7 fucking dollars. Check out the full schedule here.
