This eye-popping orgy of high-energy pixilation showcases some of the most aggressively ingenious graphic masters in the States today. Shalo P steps in as guest emcee to introduce the torrent of tropes, trips, tricks, and tits that reflect the manic obsessions of underground collage, scratch-video, and neo-psychedelic compositors. An absurdly dazzling 20-miin. set (including a cameo by Shana Moulton) of Jacob (Paper Rad) Ciocci’s West Coast premieres provides the post-Pop anchor for the program, while our kinky Queen of Quirk Martha Colburn commences the show with the Bay Area debut of her two new works, Electric Literature, and Triumph of the Wild Pt. II. Nate Boyce premieres his sublimely abstrakt Polygon, John Jota Leaños contributes his kinetic cult-fave Los ABCs, Kelly Sears shares He Hates to Be Second, and Shalo himself pitches in with a piece specially made for the occasion. PLUS other flickering pix from Semiconductor, TV Sheriff, Thomas Helman, and a chestnut from Cory McAbee. Come early for a spectacular sampling of Colburn’s light-show collaborations with Deerhoof!
