An evening of experimental music and video, tending towards Noise. We have a warehouse in an industrial area - so no noise restrictions! woohoo…

Our format is designed to give many performers exposure and maximise variety for the audience by limiting performance to 10 minute sets which overlap slightly. At the end there is an opportunity for a group jam.

Warehouses in industrial estates are made for making Noise. So let's do it!

5-10 minute sets are played one after another with each artist contributing 2-3 sets over the evening, allowing for interplay between artists during the changeover.

Cost: Free for Artifactory Members, $10 in the tin for others to help us keep the space going and help us save up for a bigger and better PA + lights. You'll get to use it, it's a good cause. :)

BYO bottle and ear plugs.
