Tonight’s a great opportunity to see two great local bands at the Springwater Supper Club. Across Tundras and Buddhist Pill are appearing in support of Peoria prog rockers Men of Fortune.

Check the clips below to see if you’re into it. I quite like Buddhist Pill’s new meditative improv “sbec,” side B being side A in reverse.

More info on the Facebook event page.

We have some amazing panels and presentations lined up for today. We want as many people as possible to check them out, so we’re making them free and open to the public. You do not need a pass or a ticket to attend today’s panels/presentations. Just head over to Fort Houston and ask the person at the front counter where to go.

At 11 a.m. we have Chris Richards hooking the audience up to a giant musical instrument. At noon Mike Hester will show you how to turn digital images into music. At 1 p.m. we the panel I’m most looking forward to: Structural Bias in Show Booking. Local musicians, artists, and show bookers Kathryn Edwards, Kale Edmiston, Paul Horton, Virginia Griswold, David Wright Lagrone and the just-added Reagan Mitchell will talk about issues like creating a feeling a safety for everyone, how to ensure accessibility for people with disabilities, and implicit structural biases in festival/conference bookers against women, people of color, people with disabilities, transgender people, and other groups.

At 2 p.m. we have a panel exploring the 8 bit world of chiptune music: “Chiptune artists use vintage computers, video game systems, and ‘emulators’ to create 8-bit compositions. Ben Marcanel, Tim Carey, Dylan Ethier, Frank Angotti, and Arnie Holder will discuss the history of the genre, the methodology, the various homebrew music-making game cartridges for the Nintendo Gameboy, and how you can create your own chiptune music.”

Check the panels schedule for more info.

We also have some excellent workshops about subverting Google, bending with photoresistors, and making music with the Arduino. Seats are still available. Check the workshop schedule for more info.

At 4:15, the chiptune artists will kick off the Sunday round of performances! Here’s the full performance schedule for tonight:
