This year's edition features rare performances by some of the most innovative musicians of our time side-by-side with some of today's newest music pioneers. Some highlights include Bang on a Can All-Stars, astonishing cellist Maya Beiser, Pauline Oliveros' Deep Listening Band, sound pioneer Alvin Lucier, indie guitar sensation Kaki King, jazz genius Matthew Shipp, music by David Longstreth (Dirty Projectors), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Steve Reich, David T Little, Ruby Fulton, Michael Harrison; film by Bill Morrison, and much more.

Worst part about that pic is the cunt walking around on her cellphone. Get off the goddamn phone and enjoy the show you asshole.

That was my mother calling to tell me that my father was in the hospital. I wasn't really able to enjoy the rest of the show. Thanks a lot for your concern.

Worst part about his thread is all the uptight trendy hipsters acting superior to anyone not staying completely glued to an interminable music session. Things DO come up sometimes.

Whatever. Try to make yourself feel better by making jokes or calling me more names. You said something stupid and shitty about me and you're being called out for it.

1:09...In the "good old days" no one knew how to reach you if you were at a show, movie, etc if things came up. You'd be having fun and come home to find out your old man dropped dead from a heart attack three hours earlier...but at least you got to have a good time that night. Your parents would go out for the night and told you they'd be back at 7pm. If it was 10pm and they weren't home you'd figure they either got stuck in traffic or were killed in a car wreck. Nowadays everyone is up everyone's ass and feels the need to be in touch at all times through phone, text, twitter, etc. It's pathetic and is making us as a society completely soft; not to mention rude, self absorbed and lacking social etiquette all at the same time.

And I don't necessarily disagree, but it doesn't mean that I'm a terrible person for answering a call regarding a terminal illness.

i'm surprised no one mentioned the plumber ass in between the couple eating all the way in the back.....

1:52...the right thing to do was notice the phone was vibrating (I'm hoping you didn't have it so it rang) and quietly left the and answered it away from the crowd; rather than wander around like a gypsy in front of people. You're not a terrible person, just a little rough around the edges.

My dying father was a nomadic person or 'gypsy' to you. Thanks a lot again. By the way, I've been messing with you all this whole time. Thanks for playing.

Hipsters calling someone a cunt is kind of like a skinhead calling someone a nazi.

"No, you're a towel!" syndrome.
