Outline: Summer will feature a headline performance by noise-rock icons Lightning Bolt. The revered Providence, RI, duo have spent two decades at the forefront of avant garde rock music, iterating on their trademark collision of technical precision and total chaos. They’ll be joined by a specially curated lineup that spans hip-hop, indie-rock, pop, electronic, and experimental music. Additional performers include: Injury Reserve, a boundary-pushing Arizona hip-hop duo, and UK techno & noise artists Giant Swan, making their New York City debut.
Fast-rising hyper-pop provocateur Alice Longyu Gao and delirious PC Music label producer umru represent the bleeding edge of futuristic pop. Unpredictable sets from the aggressive, globally attuned producer and sound selector DJ Haram (Discwoman, 700 Bliss) and local mutant rock scene linchpins, Kill Alters, round out the full Summer program.
