I drove to Chicago to see Negativland. I took a lot of pictures of the show, but I took a lot of random pictures walking around town.

OK now I finally entered the Empty Bottle after wandering around the Ukrainian Village in Chicago for a while

The show started at 7:30, Good Willsmith was up first. Pretty decent guitar/synth noise-drone set.

Illusion Of Safety was up second, his set was pretty fantastic. Lots of glitchy computer-based stuff, and some very minimal guitar drone (unfortunately it wasn’t easy to hear over the crowd talking)

Negativland consisted of Mark Hosler, Peter Conheim, Wobbly, and Steev Hise on video projections. Their set consisted of analog synth improv plus lots of chopped-up samples, most of which were familiar to Negativland fans (“Truth In Advertising”, “Car Bomb”, “The Gun And The Bible”, “Yellow Black And Rectangular”) plus some new material which they’ve been playing on Over The Edge recently. I took a few pictures of the group playing, then focused on the video projections.
