Circuitastrophe 08 was intense, so much that we are still catching up on rest. Huge Thanks goes out to the organizers Mark 1/2 Mang and Nebulagirl for all the hard work in bringing this together and to all the venues we had privilege of exploring: Art Damage Lodge, Mur Mur, Symantecs Gallery, The Mockbee, and the CAC in Cincinnati. The event was incredibly fun and well documented. Next few posts will share the treasure trove of media from those 4 days. First up are some room recordings of sets that were played at the Art Damage Lodge.
