Would love to find a cool place to listen to some live modular action. Anyone playing out around Dallas/Fort Worth? Know of any places in the area that host these type shows?

Check out D.A.M.N. Dallas Ambient Music Nights. Started off kind of slow, but each show is getting better. I've only seen one or two modular sets, but I expect more in the future. I hope to do a modular set later this year.

Yes! Thank you Patrick for shedding some light on this subject.
Occasionally you can find me doing live modular stuff as CINEMA
https://dallasdistortion.bandcamp.com/track/numerical-studies

As well as Adam Pacione: https://dallasdistortion.bandcamp.com/album/damn-vol-v

and pretty regularly Brian Tomerlin is seen doing live visuals with an LZX/Brownshoesonly modular system.

there's another dude, Nathan Golub whose also doing some dark, minimal techno-like stuff with the modular playing live as SHARA DAWN.

Mutant Wave, every third wednesday at RBC occasionally hosts some modular acts. So there's plenty of stuff going on rn with DFW.

Hey. I just relocated to Dallas for work. I've been looking for the wiggling community here. It looks like DAMN may be the ticket for performances. Nice. thumbs up

On to my next question... are there any synth meets in the area? I may actually be interested in organizing one if someone hasn't already. I started a thread here, but no traction yet. https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=169679

I attended DAMN XXII last night and it was AWESOME! I definitely found where the wigglers gather in Dallas. Here are a few pics I took at the show if anyone is interested.

I'm loving the fact the there's a DAMN show pretty much every month. Here's a 2 minute summary of last night's DAMN event if anyone is curious...

I was there too! (for the first half). DAMN is the place to go for experimental music in Dallas.

Is anyone interested in collaborating on a "modular on the spot" event in Dallas?

Here's a quick summary of the show Sunday night. There were actually 4 performers, but I couldn't stay awake long enough. Ugh. I'm getting old (or it's just DST). seriously, i just don't get it

Thanks for the heads up! thumbs up

I can't wait for DAMN XXIII later this month. Hopefully you can make it out for that.
poorness
Here are a few pics from DAMN XXIII last night...











This was so really avant grade stuff. A nice combination of traditional and electronic instruments made for a very different mood. This one really focused on percussive ambient where most of the previous ones I've been to have been percussion free. A great show nonetheless and a ton of wiggling talent here in Dallas. thumbs up

BTW, I talked to the coordinator at the show. He said the next DAMN show will be on 4/30/2017 and will take place in an empty art gallery. hyper

I just found out about this show coming up on 4/22/17 at Full City Rooster.

https://prekindle.com/promo/id/24898848665558641

I've heard some really good things about Locations and I'm anxious to see them perform. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make this one, but I still wanted to post it for others who come across this thread.

I'm bummed about it. d'oh!

Unfortunately, I missed the show on 4/14 and I was out of town on 4/22. Ugh. However, I made last night's show and here's a live shot of Felt & Fur killin' it at Aqua Lab in Deep Ellum. WOW! These guys are fantastic! I really enjoyed the performance. I heard good things about them and the show did not disappoint. thumbs up

I saw a couple cool shows in Dallas over the last few days. Here are a few pics...

AF Jones & Derek Rogers did a solo/solo/duo show on 5/4/17. Each performed a solo piece and then did a live unrehearsed duet. It was crazy. They sampled spinning coins live and played a handheld radio thru guitar pickups. Good stuff there!


Then there was a DAMN Presents show last night (5/6). It was a "behind the screen" presentation. They did a showing of Tron on the big screen, then had music behind the screen, the admission to movie and show was $15.


It was literally, behind the screen. Here is a shot of Demandite and Cinema doing a modular synth collaboration noise piece. IT BLEW MY MIND! Modular craziness!


After them there were a couple more performances including Melting Season and Cygnus, both were awesome! There is some crazy talent here in Dallas.




Meanwhile in front of the screen...


Finally, M Geddes Gengras came on stage and put on an all modular show that dropped jaws. He's really amazing. Wow!


That's a lot of entertainment for $15! Thank you DAMN!
