Proceeds from the door will go to help fund Version ’05, a hybrid form of festival, conference, arts fair and on-line project. “Driven by an irrepressible urgency for intervention in the roaring bullshit carnival that has become reality,” the event will investigate, debilitate, and agitate contemporary US culture through a diverse program featuring an experimental art expo, artistic disturbances, networked urban events, screenings, interactive software applications, performances, workshops, parties and street action. The madness takes place next month, starting on April 22nd.
But, first, the Lumpen crew needs to raise funding for the event...so, in exchange for a nominal suggested donation, they’ll be providing a line-up of dance-tastic DJs tonight at Sonotheque, including:
DJ Charlie and the Americas with Ken the Explorer
Coco Le Roq
DJ Logan Bay
DJ Rotten Milk
and the All American VJ Team
And, as an added bonus for your philanthropic support tonight, Lumpen will be handing out free copies of their latest publishing project, War News; a tabloid newspaper containing a series of posters “that will make your mother cry.”
Party starts at 9pm, suggested donation is $5-$10. Must be 21+ to enter. Sonotheque is located at 1444 W. Chicago Ave.
