No Fun Fest 2008 @ Knitting Factory in NYC, full lineup
No Fun Productions is pleased to announce the initial line-up for No Fun Fest 2008. Taking place for three nights (May 16, 17, 18) at the legendary Knitting Factory in New York City, this year’s festival, which includes some of the most acclaimed names in experimental music, avant electronics, and noise and beyond will without question create a cacophonic haven for all fans of noise and dissonant experimental sounds.
Full lineup and ticket info below….
Returning to the Upstairs/Downstairs split of the first three festivals, this year’s line-up is an apt conglomeration of both season chaos crafters and future forefathers to new sounds. Perhaps most notable among the many eye-grabbing names include minimalist pioneer Tony Conrad, who will be performing with M.V. Carbon of Metalux fame, German avant-electronic legends Cluster, and Phillip Best’s under-documented but deservedly admired Consumer Electronics Project. Also appearing will be extolled mainstays like The Haters, Lee Ranaldo, Sudden Infant, The Skaters, Thurston Moore and Lassa Marhaug plus recent talents like Burning Star Core, Demons, Religious Knives, Nautical Almanac, and Carlos Giffoni himself. The downstairs stage will play host to various geniuses of cacophonous glee from deep underground including FFH, Sewer Election, Halfings, Damion Romero, and Emeralds.
