INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONFERENCE

Recently, on a warm spring weekend, dozens of sweaty people emptied their brains of expectations as they packed into Chapel Hill's primary experimental room, Nightlight. Their goal? To take in melted techno, deepest drone, Christian noise, and varied flavors of performance art as part of Savage Weekend, Nightlight's annual celebration of all things out. The same transgressive, populist spirit animates this touring incarnation of the International Noise Conference, an offshoot of the legendary Miami festival of the same name. About twenty-five acts will perform quarter-hour sets, with a great deal of genre variety in the lineup. Thanks to the inclusion of fresh faces like Chula with established favorites like Secret Boyfriend, the event also serves as a crash course in current Triangle underground talent. Stick around late-night for the final run—Housefire, Yohimbe, Clang Quartet, and Laundry Room Squelchers will be pure lightning. —David Ford Smith
