The Bunker presents the 3rd Annual 303 Acid Celebration with Mark Verbos and Woody McBride at Galapagos 70 North 6th Street 21+, 11p-4a
So 3/03 doesn't fall anywhere near a Friday this year, but we've had such a blast hosting this party the past two years that we just had to do it again. You know the deal: all acid, all night ... no song without a 303!
Ever since the 2004 Winter Music Conference, Mark Verbos has been getting alot of attention for his amazing acid house sets using all the classic Roland hardware (TR-909, TR-707, TR-808, MC-202, and of course the TB-303). Verbos is a veteran of the early 90's midwest rave scene, where he played many Drop Bass parties, so he knows a thing or two about acid. He never looked back and has been producing great records and playing at huge parties ever since, building up a formidable discography. Check out his website for proof of all this and some nice downloads. Tonight he will help us to celebrate 3/03 with his live acid house set, which will be EXTRA heavy on the 303. This very impressive live improvised set has blown the roof off of the Bunker several times (this will be Mark's third 303 appearance), and we're sure tonight will be no different. Check out The Bunker Podcast this week for a recording of his set at last year's 303 Acid Celebration.
American elektro-shaman, Woody McBride, aka DJ ESP, rocks the world with his unique style of tribal techno, acid house, elektro, ambidelics, hardtek and authentic old school minimal electronic music. In 2007, Woody released a new album, performed live at the legendary Mayday Festival in Germany, re-launched his foundational American record label Communiqué Records on vinyl worldwide and digitally via Beatport, is booked weekly around the planet and, does a pioneering and futuristic dance mix show and for America's premier alt-public radio station 89.3 FM The Current. Raised in the rugged and interesting North Dakota, ESP has rung up over 3 million frequent flyer miles, released nearly 200 records and CDs and inspired many people to love music, get back to nature and "be alive" - without the use of drugs and alcohol. He is known to be a man of all hats in the electronic music business - musician, dj, live performer, event promoter, live audio engineer, large sound system visionary, graphic artist, music journalist, label owner, artist coach, soundtrack producer, educator, spiritual guide, sobriety and wellness advocate, and ambassador for electronic music to all audiences. Since 1990, his signature deeper than deep 909 kick drum, a base chakra synth funk and a thick mysterious 303 acid sound is what has put ESP in a hard-to-label league of legendary and pioneering producers. His art now shines the brightest today. We are extremely excited to have one of the pioneers of the acid sound join us with an all acid live PA!
