Noise Pop announced today that it's partnering with Blasthaus to add an electronic music element to its popular spring festival. Headlining Electropop acts include WALE and MSTRKRFT, with more ACTS IN ALL CAPS to come. More below:
Noise Pop and Blasthaus are also proud to present Electropop. This dynamic new chapter in the festival focuses on musicians and artists using electronic mediums. Electropop will run Friday, February 29th and Saturday March 1st, 2008, and feature two exhilarating nights of music and new media art manifested at Mighty.
Headlining Friday night at Electropop will be D.C. electro-rap phenomenon WALE (pronounced wah-ley), who blends hip hop with classic D.C. go-go music stylings. Saturday night will feature electro/rock hybrid MSTRKRFT. The duo of JFK and ALP have been breaking down the musical boundaries between punk, electro, disco, and more since their work with rock project, Death From Above 1979. And along with the musical portion of the festival, the two-night showcase will include interactive art installations by Bay Area new media artists along with blasthaus' low-tech gaming initiative BOLT (Bureau of Low Technology).
