Grouper at Terminal 5 in 2009 (more by Natasha Ryan)
Grouper

Mini festival Neon Marshmallow is making its way to NYC, after two successful outings in Chicago. The festival will call Public Assembly home over three days (10/14 - 10/16), featuring live performances, DJ sets, and visuals from many artists who embrace experimentalism. Among the bands performing at the fest are names like Tim Hecker, Rhys Chatham (who celebrates 40 years of The Kitchen in September), Grouper, Phill Niblock, and many others that range in genre from Alan Licht to The Men (who are currently touring and will play Saint Vitus on 9/17) to Xeno & Oaklander to La Big Vic. The festival is currently selling weekend passes, though no word on individual days or who will perform on each day. Full lineup is below.

In other news, Grouper, who recently played LPR and Glasslands, has a new digital 7" available. Stream the title track from Grouper's latest Water People 7" below alongside the full Neon Marshmallow lineup.

Neon clown shit.

I predict that the 'clown shit' phrase will die off within a month anyway. Sadly, it's one of the less annoying BV cliches.

Tim Hecker, Niblock, Kevin Drumm, and Blues Control sound good. Can do without the Xeno & Oaklander cute English accents though.
