Last year we were asked by Dan Smith to play his Neon Marshmallow fest in Chicago. It seemed a bit far fetched, but hey, we need to get out to Chicago to visit some friends anyways, can stop on the way to visit other friends, so yeah, we were stoked. Then we found out that Matt Kimmel of Acid Marshmallow fame was involved and it sealed the deal. He has been a major supporter of Telecult since our earliest NYC gigs, so yeah…
Really amazing New York bands such as Grasshopper, Excepter, EID, Rust Worship, Girly Temple, Slasher Risk, Family Treasures are going, so that will be hot. Cleveland has a good showing with Emeralds & Skin Graft, looking forward to that. Surprised no Fragments, and where is Sam Goldberg? Expect to hear terms like “electro-accoustic” thrown around, yawn.
I grabbed this schedule from Impose but according to Kimmel they switched the orders around to reflect their personal tastes a bit, so I tweaked Saturday
night’s back to the original from what Matt told me, sure the real one will unveil itself soon enough tho.
Please note that we are playing twice, first a Telecult Powers set on Saturday night, then a Hex Breaker Quintet set on Sunday afternoon.
We went out with Mark & Sam for a few days last week, played Brooklyn’s Death By Audio (as Hex Breaker Quintet), Wesleyan College, Hampshire College and Bard. Someone was kind enough to film our sets -
Radio People (Sam Goldberg)
I would say that the Voice of the Valley Noise Rally 2009 was success, awesome times had by all.
For some bootlegs of sets go here.
