Tom 7 Entertainment System show at Belvedere's, March 27 (22 Mar 2009 at 02:25)
I know I've mentioned this before, but now there's a poster. And it's coming up soon. I'm playing with William Sides Atari Party, X-Buster, and Bit Mummy. I don't really know anything about how this is going down (like band order or timeframe) other than the 8pm listing, but I am fairly certain it is really happening. Performing this video game music is not as obvious as performing stuff that's created in the first place with guitars and the mouth. But I have written some software and I am working still on some hardware and I promise I will not just sit behind a laptop, at least. And Belvedere's is a pretty cool spot, in Lawrenceville. Come if you want. Unlike the incessant Sick Ridiculous shows, this may be the only chance to see this project live, like, ever.

PS. The show at the Lava Lounge was really fun. Thanks for everybody that came! :)

Useless to say, I hope you play at least one Untitled.Gif Orchestra song live. I am sure some of the earliest themes would absolutely fit the event :)

Sridhar: is that like the opposite of a restraining order (containing order)?

Since this might be a one-off thing, of course it's going to be recorded, right?

Also I'd be interested in what your setup is. Performing not-totally-improvisational electronic music well and interestingly live is one of those weird problems I've always been interested in but never been able to find a nice solution to.

I will attempt to record it, but live music is best experienced live! :)

I think you accidentally left off a "via satellite" from that last message, Tom. Yes you did.

So, how did the concert go? Pre-recorded music played live is a performance challenge, except for milli vinilli.

I tried to print out your Crazy Blue Guy Getting Accelerated Face poster, but the background failed to palette cycle! Curse you outdated non gif compliant printer technology!!!!
