Description

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the International Noise Conference is a sometimes touring event masterminded by veteran noise dude, Rat Bastard, and headlined by his band the Laundry Room Squelchers. For each stop on the tour, Rat selects a local curator to put together a bill of performers who each perform for 15 minutes or less. Other rules include: no laptops, no droning. The definition of "noise" is often vague, and will include harsh feedback-driven assualts, hardcore free jazz, confrontational performance art, and sometimes pretty electronic music. This show is curated by The Lab's Executive Director, Sarah Lockhart.
