GigLog – Aesthetic Nights (NYC)

This was a really great show. . . little did we know how quickly the wheels would come off the whole world.

Sold out show at Mercury Lounge. Shit was WILD. I did visuals for PowerPCME, and we were definitely the highlight of the night.

Here’s the set – Live footage sourced from Youtube, and the Visuals + Board Feed sourced from the Atomos Ninja 2 in the live rig.

Giglog – NMESH & VIDEOPUNKS Live at 100% Electronicon

This was a really great show. . . NMESH & I had only talked a little bit before doing it, and certainly never had a chance to rehearse it.

But we got up on stage, jammed it out, and I’ll definitely never forget how it felt to be up there for a Sold Out audience at Elsewhere in Brooklyn.
