Sort of like it’s analog cousin, Open Channel is an non-curated musician’s showcase in a supportive, relaxed environment, except it showcases electronic music, either through DJing or Live PAs. You will get 20 minutes to show off what you do musically, and then listen to other people doing the same thing.
There are 12 slots open. The first 12 people who RSVP and pay will be guaranteed a slot. Playing order will be determined on the date of the performance.
CONFIRMED as of 7/7/10:
I also have a limited number of free gifts for performers and donors! Woot. (If I forgot to give you one last time, let me know)
You are also absolutely welcome to bring friends, or just come as a spectator!
There is a suggested donation of $5.
- You will be plugging in to an open channel on the mixer with one RCA cable from your gear. We will have 3 people set up on the table and then use the mixer to fade between people when they are ready to go, without dead air. Please try to stick to the 20 minute limit so everyone gets a chance to play.
- There are no monitors, but the room is not huge and the space is carpeted.
- Please note that there is not a lot of room at the front of house, so try to keep your gear footprint to the smallest you can manage (ie: there is no room to set up a full drum kit, so don’t bring it). The ideal setup would be a laptop plus one or two pieces of outboard gear / MIDI controllers.
- There are CD turntables at the space already. We could arrange record turntables, or you can bring yours if you need them.
Scroll to MULTIKULTI on the call box to get buzzed in and go up to the 4th floor. The space is an art + media collective and gallery. BYOB.
Text / call me personally at (312) 869-4647.
Please say OPEN CHANNEL at the buzzer or door so you can be directed to the right room. See you soon!
