The Shpongletron Experience @ House of Blues 6/3/11

Simon Posford has been a serious contender in the psychedelic ambi-trance scene for the better part of 15 years. From Hallucinogen, and Younger Brother – the veteran electro-android/man has been spinning his kaliedoscopic soundwebs globally for quite some time now. Posford basically defined and further propelled the Goa Trance movement in the 90’s and remains an influential and one-of-a-kind player in the realm of electronic music.

But next Friday night, he arrives in New Orleans with a new variation of an old project – dubbed “The Shpongletron Experience.” This hypnotic and roving audio-visual circus features a 20 foot tall, LED-videomapped structure with platforms for dancers and lasers, and a spinning 6 foot sculpture of the famous Shpongle head (sure to do the same to the back row spinners and spunions). Expect a war chest of synths, turntables and effects knobs – as well as the musical arrangements of Raja Ramm. Make sure you don’t have to do any heavy lifting the next day, this show is likely to leave you hypnotized from the front to the back of the brain.

The Shpongletron Experience

The Shpongletron Experience is currently in the midst of a 30+ date US tour that included an appearance at Coachella and a stop on the farm to transform This Tent at Bonnaroo into a super late-night carnival atmosphere. The Experience is proving to be one of the most interesting modern platforms for auditory and visual stimulus traveling the world right now. Couple that with the usual insanity of the Friday night French Quarter scene, and the possibilities are endless.

Random Rab will be opening up around 9:00pm and Shpongle should be on just after that. Tickets are $29 and can be found here. Also, for a LIMITED TIME next week on Monday, May 30th and Tuesday, May 31st, Shpongle fans can purchase 1 ticket and get 1 free at Box Office located at 225 Decatur St. See you at the show!
