The Random Gear Festival is a recurring event in which pre arranged selections of ‘gear’ (of both a musical and non-musical nature), are assigned at random to a selection of performers who are expected to improvise on said equipment for a duration of no less than 5 minutes and no more than 15.
This is the 5th edition of this event and the second to take place in the fine city of Providence, Rhode Island. It is scheduled to occur on Saturday November 26th between the hours of 6pm and 10pm at downtown watering hole Tommy’s Place.
…and the performers are:
Luke Moldof and Lance Simmons Duo
Mark Johnson, Kylie Lance, Dave Public Trio
Party Tom, Jeff Johnson, Ned Paige Trio
Daren Ho, Eric Grieshaber, Tayla, and Boris Quartet
Please bring a monetary donation for the out of town performers.

RODGER STELLA (AL)
Legendary American Experimental Artist from Birmingham, AL…formerly 1/2 of Pittsburgh, PA harsh noise masters MACRONYMPHA.
PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT (CA)
Flawless composition from Jonathan Borges and Shannon Kennedy of Los Angeles, CA. Wide considered to be the most innovative act in performance and noise active today, never disappoints, always inspires.
Mat Rademan, the Philadephia OG. 1/2 of bizarre audio terrorists FUN, long standing purveyor of tape manipulation, cut up harsh noise, and all kinds of mind fuckery that could only come from himself. Unique and not to be missed.
VELVET CURTAIN (MI)
Twisted power electronics from the main homie Pascal. Toured through the Gate with GNAWED last year and killed it, expecting it ten-fold on this night.
Relentless harsh noise from the Daquiri capital of the U.S.A., traveling the country and ripping apart every city she can, Heaven’s Gate will be no exception.
