Wow, is all I can say after the Minneapolis stop of the Bent Festival 2008 put on by the Tank and executed by the Beatrix*Jar Duo from the Twin Cities along with the help of the staff at the Intermedia Arts Center and all the awesome volunteers from as far out as Indianapolis.
The quality of this event was unbeatable, so much raw talent present made it mind blowing.
The artists traveled from near and far to be at this event: Circuit Ben Reaction and DJ Tendraw all the way from U.K; Eraser – Italy, Brian McKenna from Amsterdam, Dr. Rek – Japan, Loud Objects – NYC, Ron S. – Denver, Sounds Happy – Chicago, Memory Selector – Chicago/Minneapolis Trio, Creme Dementia – DeKalb IL, Albino Ghost Monkey Rice Lake WI, Igloo Martian – Le Crosse WI, Life as a Number Five – Madison WI, Tim Kaiser – Duluth MN, Talking Computron – CR IA, Datura 1.0, Caly McMorrow, Beatrix*Jar – Minneapolis.
The pictures are slowly trickling online. So far the best quality can be seen in this flickr stream by Jeremy Pavleck. Unfortunately he was not able to make the Friday, but what he took rest of the time looks pretty amazing.
Stay Tuned for more, this is only part one.
