Friday night, clear your schedule. Rich Aucoin has made party hats with you and your friends' names on them. Aucoin promises "more visuals, light shows, balloons and confetti than you know what to do with." He harnesses the power and energy of a Flaming Lips show all by himself, but Windom Earle is sharing the bill to help keep the crowd overwhelmed with danceable awesomeness. Aucoin will also be showing off his remixing prowess under a new Century Club moniker.
The show is in celebration of a cassette, which Aucoin describes as an "underground hip-hop-style mix tape. Most of the tracks are other peoples' and then one or two of mine and Windom has the other side, doing the same."
For part of the night Aucoin will be "mixing YouTube fun with Baltimore-style mash-ups." Interaction is fundamental for a performance like this: "People can enjoy the show without taking part, but these live shows," says Aucoin, "are really designed for everyone to be a part of."
