LET IT BEGIN
It has arrived! The opening ceremonies for the 6th annual Magma Festival will take place this Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:00pm. We've got a damn fine party planned for you with a variety of beat-oriented music to take you all through the night. The theme is Summer in Seattle in Winter. Nostalgia for that 6 week window of sunshine and lake swimming bliss. We'll bring the chips, you bring the dip!
Speaking of youthful, get to Hollow Earth Radio early (like 8 THIRTY) because 15 year old Ian Ostrowski, a Sunday Hollow Earth Radio DJ, will be opening the evening. Ian is in the rock band Deception Pass, but this will be his first foray into live beat-based music. His album 'The Fire' (recently self-released on bandcamp) was a year-end favorite at the station. Check out this hella twin peaks sounding number, Tranquilo!
Says Ian on Twitter:
Yep! Raz Simone is a frequent collaborator with Sam Lachow (see 'Young Seattle' video) but is also a powerful solo performer. We recently added Raz to the bill after Kung Foo Grip had to cancel, and we're excited to see what he will bring.
To mix it up, we've got sets planned from experimental electronic artist The Numbs described by Dave Segal from the Stranger as:
"Black Dice-ian, sinister/tropical headuckery—rock refracted through several fun-house mirrors and slipped a magic-mushroom Slurpee"
And crowd favorite PUNISHMENT will be performing an installation entitled 'Punishment TV", which includes William's fun-loving party music layered with pre-recorded solo performances from Andrew Swanson, Zach Burba, etc. all played off a vhs tape. Here's a behind the scenes look of the project:
Helping out with the DJ assist will be local genius WD4D and 'Hollow Head' DJ Thad Wenatchee.
BRING SOME DIP. Seriously, we'll have chips.
