Tonight: The Return of Eclectic Method!

November 6th, 2009, 11:35 am by Greg

Did you miss ’em at Red Square last time they were in town?
Or down at Jason’s Upstairs Bar in Hudson?
Don’t make the same mistake again…

The one and only internationally acclaimed, globally reknowned video DJ mixmaster pioneers Eclectic Method wreak their audio/visual havoc at the MarketPlace Gallery (temporary location) on the fourth floor at 4 Central Ave., Albany.


The dance party kicks off at 8pm with Disposable Rocket Band and DJ Trumastr.

Prior to the dance party, of course, there’s the art exhibition, “Ready or Not,” which kicks off at 4:30pm as part of the First Friday arts walk. The art – just as exciting as the dance party, by the way – features works by Samson Contompasis, Dwell, One Unit, Austin Gamsjager, Radical!, Dunn, Designs by Jessyca and lots more.


Be Here Now: Eclectic Method @ Red Square, 7/18

July 15th, 2009, 9:45 am by Greg

Eclectic Method is an international three-man band of media mash-masters.

They not only splice ‘n’ dice songs and beats, but they also mash up films, television and videogames. Then they fuse it all back together into something totally brave and brand new – a mega-wallop of multiple-screen, neo-narrative sensory overload.

They not only shake your booty. They also shake up your braincells.

It’s not just art-rock. It’s cuisinart-rock.

They’ve worked with the likes of Public Enemy, Stephen Colbert, Fatboy Slim and U2, but there’s nothing quite like what these guys do live. Sure, Nero fiddled while Rome was burning, but at an Eclectic Method throwdown, you’ll be boogeying to the sights and sounds of pop culture imploding.

And, of course, no two Eclectic Method shows are even remotely the same, and Nippertown fans will have the opportunity to be sucked into back-to-back performances this weekend.

They’ll be at Jason’s Upstairs Bar in Hudson on Friday, July 17 and at Red Square in Albany on Saturday, July 18. Prior to the Jason’s performance, there will be a screening of the controversial documentary film, “RiP!: A Remix Manifesto.” As the opening act on Saturday in Albany, meanwhile, the one-man sonic assault squadron Disposable Rocket Band will bomb the house with heat-seeking missles. And DJ Mr. Chips will be mixin’ it up both nights.
