Still a couple co-sponsored events left, including Reliquary of Labor: A Parallel Media Project tonight at 7:30pm at the Axiom Gallery, and the Radio Lab Listening Party with host Jad Abumrad tomorrow (Wed.) night at the Museum of Science (this is probably sold out — fair warning). Come say hi to us MegaFesty looking people if you make it to either.
Boston CyberArts just posted a nifty video featuring opening nite performances from Radio Wonderland, Die Schrauber, the Lothars, and the Boston Typewriter Orchestra (Peace, Loving aren’t on the vid, but check them out too–they’re sexy.) Plus, there’s a quick interview with MegaFest co-director Nick vdK, who is desperately clutching to his smokes in an attempt to look cool.
In the past 72 hours, we heard and created all manner of mind-blowing sonic experiments, received our very own official theme song, met people so wonderful they’re probably related to Jesus, shook our asses, and got busted by security for sneaking into places we weren’t supposed to go.
We’ll tell you all about it very soon and post MP3s, pickchures, videoz, and flingaflangs. But right now, we’re gonna get some rest.
We can’t thank enough people for helping make this happen, but uberspecial thanks to Gina Hey, Thacher Tiffany, Ashley Ahearn, and Tom Mattos, and all our sponsors, volunteers, presenters/performers/artists, and of course YOU THE LISTENER.
In case you haven’t seen it, online ticketing is closed. BUT JUST WAIT! You can still come to the Elks Lodge (55 Bishop Allen Cambridge) tonight 4/24 to buy a festival pass ($50/$35 student) or to just get in for the night ($10). If you can’t make it tonight you can come to the Pierre Menard Gallery (10 Arrow St. Cambridge) tomorrow (4/25) to buy a festival pass, OR come straight to either to Gregory Whitehead ($5 / free for passholders) or the Third Coast Listening Session ($10 / free for passholders) at Gund Hall tomorrow 4/25 OR OR later on that night at 9pm at the Elks ($10 / free for passholders).
(For all daytime sessions you do need a festival pass.)
For passholders all RSVPs are full except for the following (if you’ve already RSVPd you are in – don’t worry):
Circuit Twisting with David Nunez, Saturday 9:30 to 11am (1 spot left – $10 material fee)
UpRightDown with Laura Silver, Saturday, 9:30am to 11am (multiple slots left – free)
Circuit Twisting with David Nunez, Sunday 1 to 2:30pm (3 spots left – $10 material fee)
We’re featured on the local pubradio show Radio Boston tomorrow/Friday a few hours before the festival starts. Nick couldn’t make it down (boo hiss) but Justin and MEGASTAR Kara Oehler are in that house. Show starts at 1pm Eastern and is one hour — I’m guessing our segment will air around 1:50 and will be a few minutes long, so you better start listening to the radio now until 2pm tomorrow to make sure you don’t miss it. DON’T – FALL – ASLEEP! Tune in to WBUR on the Web or 90.9 on zee FM dial if yr in the Boston area.
Resident blogging superfriends Shawn and Andrew have started blogging about their trips to and travails at the MEGAPOLIS Festival over at the Transom website. If you’re going to be at MegaFest, log on sometime during the weekend to cheer them on and give them a comment or two. If you can’t make it to the festival this weekend, BOOOO — at least they’ll make you more regretful of the greatness you missed (BECAUSE YOU DESERVE IT).
