This event takes as its starting point the mission of Pitchfork’s sister site Altered Zones—to highlight one of the more overlooked narratives in contemporary music: the proliferation of home-recorded sounds, small-scale releases, and pockets of underground activity all over the world. Occupying the New Museum’s theater, lobby, and 7th floor Sky Room, this event will present ten artists and five DJs:

Performers
AraabMuzik
Eric Copeland
Grimes
Xeno & Oaklander
Trash Talk
Light Asylum
Prince Rama
FORMA
Dive
Teengirl Fantasy

DJs
Awesome Tapes From Africa
Weird Magic
Todd Pendu
Main Attrakionz
Ayshay

Visuals
Curated by NBNY

A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the 2012 New Museum Triennial, an international exhibition of emerging artists.

Beer will be provided courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery. This event is 21+
