Hey Carl,

You may be interested in Soundplay as well
(http://www.soundtravels.ca/soundplay/), especially the Oct. 15 performance by Metamkine, which includes Jerome Noetinger on tape loops & two film projectionists. I've seen them a few times and they're quite amazing. You're right... October looks nuts.

Um. Where is this 'the Boat' that Yacht, Anna and Blow are playing at?
Never heard of it but I want to go.
Help!
