Towner & Melting Vinyl present…
Towner – The Contemporary Art museum for the South East in association with Melting Vinyl and Boredbrands Digital Funfair are delighted to present our inaugural Christmas Carnival. For one night only the cavernous exhibition halls of Towner will be transformed into a festive “mash up of popular culture, technology and the thrill of the fairground”.
Central to the night is the Eastbourne premier of the festival circuit favourite Bored Brands Digital Funfair. Carnival goers can expect such delights as the Virtual Coconut Shy, semi automatic dj-ing table, the Beat Jigsaw and Smack bottoms – the world’s only mannequin based guitar hero game!
Sounds on the night will be programmed by Melting Vinyl and will include themed live acts and DJ’s.
Having been compared to LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip, this Anglo-French Brighton-based band Transformer, are set to fill the dance floor once again with their electro-disco grooves. Accompanying them will be DJs and Promoters Teen Creeps. This collective have been bringing fresh electro sounds to Brighton through nights such as ‘Das Club Boutique’. Now bringing their new wave synth sounds to Vive La France! 2012, this is a DJ set to bring the night alight.
In addition expect digital graffiti from Tom Goulden and Towner’s very own Generate Crew. Optional dress code for the night is “past, present and yet to come” – the particularly adventurous can try all three at once.
