The Experimental Garage Sale was a smash success all across the board, so much that there is already talk about the next one. The Artists finally had a long and needed La Purga of gear. Their cherished musical instruments  got new homes with other local and traveling Artists, ready to be utilized in new and unexpected ways.

Initially there was a concern over the cloudy skies so the call was made to move sale inside the Experimental Sound Studio facilities, but that worked out even better thanks to the spacious Live Rooms and the AC kicking. The summer rain helped to cool off the outside and make for a perfect evening later on in the Windy City.

Austin’s Table and Customers

In the first 2 hours the traffic was unbelievable, piles of unbent gear disappeared before our very eyes and intense negotiations were taking place for the bent stuff. In the end everybody was satisfied, leaving with piles of smiles.

The sounds going on at once inside of the room were amazing and thanks to Nebulagirl we also have some recordings of that. Toys being tested, conversations, hustle and bustle all beautifully melted together. Click here to listen. More images from the event are also in the GetLoFi Gallery here and soon there should be video of Artists talking about their creations on Gearwire.
