The show at The Tank is described like this: "Amplification is magnification. Using voice, feedback installations, live soldering, wireless modular synths, photography, musical instruments and more, performers will play with amplification to change our perception of sound. Big sound, little sound, and everything in between."

John Oliver and Reggie Watts are both performing at Rififi tonight. Flyer below.
