Curated by Ren Schofield (Providence, RI), the Random Gear Festival is a conceptual celebration of the excitement and spontaneity of avant sound in which performers are randomly assigned an assortment of non-traditional instruments and objects (not necessarily of any musical nature) and expected to improvise live for a duration of at least five minutes and up to fifteen. The results of this process will likely be varied, confounding, and questionable. Nothing will be proven.
The event is Saturday, June 21, 4 p.
m. at Estate of Confusion, 301 East Main St. Tickets are $5 at the door.
The performers are:
Aether Jag (Chattanooga)
Ann Law & Bruce Kaplan (Chattanooga)
The Monday Nights (Port Richmond)
Outmode (Carrboro, NC)
Rat Bastard (Miami, Fl.)
Ren Schofield (Providence, RI)
Stardaddy Dixie (formerly of Chicago)
Subconscious Colors (Chattanooga)
