Les Savy Fav are known for their rambunctious live show but their recorded music isn’t bad either. Now, the New York based band is lending that recorded music for an unconventional purpose, scoring an art exhibit. Records by the group will serve as the sound track for Deluxx Fluxx Arcade, an arcade themed installation by artist collective Faile. The arcade, or artcade as I call it, features fully functional games with imagery created by Faile. Deluxx Fluxx Arcade will be open until May 27th at 158 Allen Street.

Market Hotel is one of the most influential, and best, venues in New York’s burgeoning DIY scene, hosting acts such as Japanther and Sleigh Bells amongst thousands of others. The clandestine and cavernous Bushwick show space has operated in a legal grey area since it’s induction, unlicensed but never seriously threatened by law enforcement. However, earlier this month Market Hotel was shut down mid show by the NYPD. Now the venue hopes to remain in business by making that business a non profit. More info here.
When most people see the picture to the left they see a child’s toy, what circuit benders see is a potential musical instrument. Circuit bender’s reappropriate household items to create otherworldly sounds never intended by their manufacturers.

The festival includes both workshops and concerts where artists perform using their homemade instruments. For a complete schedule and more info check out the Fest’s official website here.
