Glitch Mode Decode Tour 2018 w/Cyanotic and KANGA

Tuesday, September 4, 2018
Doors 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm show, 21+

$20 advance / $25 at the door
Tickets on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets!

CYANOTIC
The soundtrack to a dystopian world view.

Part band, part machine, the Chicago-based angry robot outfit Cyanotic, has been producing their own hybrid of angry robot music since forming in 2002. Striking balance between synthetic order and frenzied chaos, the band’s 2017 release “Tech Noir” serves as a welcome updating of their loving homage to electronic music culture and classic cyberpunk tropes.

KANGA
Producer, songwriter, composer, KANGA wields the power of objectification in a hyper surreal world of techno-industrial landscapes and manipulative pop hooks.

KANGA is a solo project of a Los Angeles based composer, artist, and music programmer who has worked on films that include Nightmare, The Devils Carnival II, Insidious III, and The Conjuring II. KANGA has been making a lot of waves in the couple of years, including a recommendation from Gary Numan as well as performances at Terminus Festival and Cold Waves! She's back after an explosive show at The Red Sea back in January and we are very lucky to have her back so soon!

AMELIA ARSENIC
Harsh beats for dark times. Electro-punk rivet-jams with a satirical edge featuring the caustic pairing of versatile ingenue.

Amelia Arsenic is a Sydney-born musician, visual artist, and fashion designer. She’s released two solo EPs and was previously a member of Angelspit.

FOR ALL THE EMPTINESS
Dark electronic music project responding to claims based on anti-reason.

DJ FENRIS
Sonic shapeshifter specializing in the manifestation of dark sounds ranging from ebm, industrial and goth to techno, electro, synth and new waves. Resident DJ at Ground Zero Nightclub in Minneapolis. Also a regular guest of Hard Mondays at the Rouge at The Lounge.

CYANOTIC
The soundtrack to a dystopian world view.

Part band, part machine, the Chicago-based angry robot outfit Cyanotic, has been producing their own hybrid of angry robot music since forming in 2002. Striking balance between synthetic order and frenzied chaos, the band’s 2017 release “Tech Noir” serves as a welcome updating of their loving homage to electronic music culture and classic cyberpunk tropes.

KANGA
Producer, songwriter, composer, KANGA wields the power of objectification in a hyper surreal world of techno-industrial landscapes and manipulative pop hooks.

KANGA is a solo project of a Los Angeles based composer, artist, and music programmer who has worked on films that include Nightmare, The Devils Carnival II, Insidious III, and The Conjuring II. KANGA has been making a lot of waves in the couple of years, including a recommendation from Gary Numan as well as performances at Terminus Festival and Cold Waves! She's back after an explosive show at The Red Sea back in January and we are very lucky to have her back so soon!

AMELIA ARSENIC
Harsh beats for dark times. Electro-punk rivet-jams with a satirical edge featuring the caustic pairing of versatile ingenue.

Amelia Arsenic is a Sydney-born musician, visual artist, and fashion designer. She’s released two solo EPs and was previously a member of Angelspit.

FOR ALL THE EMPTINESS
Dark electronic music project responding to claims based on anti-reason.

DJ FENRIS
Sonic shapeshifter specializing in the manifestation of dark sounds ranging from ebm, industrial and goth to techno, electro, synth and new waves. Resident DJ at Ground Zero Nightclub in Minneapolis. Also a regular guest of Hard Mondays at the Rouge at The Lounge.

Since 2012, Ladyslipper Ensemble has been uncovering lost works and introducing audiences to rarely heard pieces.

“Once upon a time baroque music meant Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and little else. No longer — the excavation of the period continues, throwing reams of previously unfamiliar music into the laps of curious concertgoers. The St. Paul-based Ladyslipper Ensemble is a specialist in this area.” - Terry Blaine, Star Tribune

Help the World Crime League raise some cash for our devious future!

Do you wanna see more Dead of Winters, F**ked-Up Xmas Specials, and other sinister staged stuff? Join the World Crime League this July for an evening of entertainment at off-leash area: contemporary performance works Art Box in Minneapolis!

Joining the World Crime League for the night will be three local theatre groups, presenting sneak previews of their Minnesota Fringe performances:

*The Moirologist by Andy Rakerd, presented by Life-Sized Meme Productions

*Rejection by Hailey Colwell/Developed by Theatre Corrobora

*The Buttslasher by Andy Rakerd, presented by New Endeavors Productions, our Dead of Winter co-producers!

For the second half of the evening, the World Crime League will present a staged reading of the show they WOULD'VE been presenting at Fringe this year, if the luck of the draw had been on their side: Andrew Rosdail's superhero dark comedy We Were Only Henchmen! Featuring the talents of Samantha Hedden, Chelsea Wren Hanvy, James Napoleon Stone, Andy Rakerd, and Christopher DeVaan!

In addition to these performances, there will be live music provided by Jeffery Goodson as well as raffles for stuff you didn't realize you wanted but need in your life!

Seating is very limited! All funds will go to the future of the WCL and will ensure all contributing artists in our future projects- the actors, designers, and playwrights, etc.-will be compensated fairly for their efforts.

$20 general admission
$15 w/ Fringe Button or Student ID

Content warning:

The Moirologist contains talk of death and suicide, as well as some audience participation.
The Buttslasher contains a good possibility of naked butts making an appearance.

'Footprints' Workshop - Bigfoot Fans Wanted! http://twincitiesgeek.com/mc-events/footprints-workshop-bigfoot-fans-wanted/?mc_id=9244 Wed, 06 Jun 2018 23:12:42 +0000 slaphappystudios Slap Happy Studios is holding a series of workshops to generate ideas for their future project, 'Footprints' about a hunt for Bigfoot and the effects it has on a small town as the residents try to come to terms with their beliefs being challenged. The show will rely heavily on humor and camp, playing off of b-movie tropes while simultaneously highlighting the audience’s psychological fear of the unknown and the inherent horror of calling into question everything.

We are looking for people with all kinds of theatre, cryptozoology, and creative backgrounds. Our second workshop will take place on Saturday, June 16 from 11:30am to 1:30pm in the Meeting Room (lower level) at Hosmer Library (347 E. 36th St. Minneapolis, MN 55408). We will be exploring tropes and elements from genres including horror, b-horror, and camp. Please come play with us! If you will be attending, please fill out the attached Google Form.
