Coming hot on the heels of last week’s MultipleTap tour, which featured legends of Japanese noise, we now have the first (perhaps only) Central FL Antifest, a one-night gathering of newer noisemakers and miscreants from all around the South. The interesting thing at an event like this is in hearing the way that noise music disseminates and mutates into new, weird hybrids in cities and towns that are far more isolated than, say, NYC or San Francisco (or Tokyo). Highlights include the delicate drones of Rin Larping (Atlanta), a collaborative set from Gainesville’s Rauh and Miami’s Onset (aka Rick Smith of Torche), the harsh sound collage of Palmetto’s Vasectomy Party, Bellringer’s (St. Aug.) performance art power electronics, and more locally, Bacon Grease’s no-wave attack. The Antifest is curated by Dylan Houser of Lakeland’s Hell Garbage and is free. Sets will be 15 minutes in length, so if you’re not enjoying something, don’t worry: It will be over soon enough. Be a witness to the spectacle.
