Overclocked New Year's with Nullsleep! Open Bar Sponsored by Sixpoint Craft Ales!
This New Year's Eve, throw down for a good cause. We're raising money for the production of John Faustus and the Overclocked Death Drive, a mad-cap, frenetic multimedia adaptation of the classic Faust story, and we're having a huge NYE bash to do it!
For just $25 you'll enjoy an open bar ALL NIGHT LONG, sponsored by Sixpoint Craft Ales (don't worry, there will be non-beer options, too), a champagne toast at midnight, and all the dancing you can stand until the early morning hours. And who better to help you overclock that death drive than the master of destruction, the incomparable:
NULLSLEEP (8bitpeoples, Blip Festival)
Nullsleep is the alias of Jeremiah Johnson, an electronic musician whose style could best be described as post-cyberpunk: a combination of distorted synthpop, electro, and industrial produced with repurposed low-bit electronics. His approach embraces the politics of appropriation, leveraged limitations, destructive process and data corruption. The result is a wall of digital noise driven by a heavy beat, expanding and collapsing in a series of glitches and drones emanating from cheap plastic devices. In 1999 Nullsleep cofounded 8bitpeoples, a collective of artists interested in the audio-visual aesthetics of early home computers and video game consoles. He has since released a number of recordings through 8bitpeoples, Astralwerks, Aniplex and others. Based in New York City, Nullsleep has performed over 150 shows throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including successful world tours in 2006 and 2009.

And if the one glass of champagne isn't enough, or you're feeling especially wicked, an extra 25 bucks gets you champagne bottle service-- that's $50 for open bar, party, and a bottle of bubbly for your very own.
We'll be adding more information throughout the coming weeks, but be certain that this is already a party you won't soon forget-- that is, if you can remember it in the morning!
