** Big show coming up in Cleveland! ** Tickets on sale now **

Enoch Light Birthday Memorial Go-Go Happening show poster

Back in the 90's ECC spin-off The Weird Love Makers participated in a few of these events.  Now, after more than a decade off, it's back in a BIG way -- with many other bands creating custom-made performances to celebrate Enoch Light's legacy in lounge, plus go-go dancers, live VJing, video installations, and more!  The ECC will not only bring an Enoch-friendly Wheel Of Mashup to the show but also custom-made Kinect-based video installations where YOU get to be the dots in album covers like the ones above.

This is a rare ECC live gig not to mention a one-of-a-kind show all around! DON'T MISS IT!

From the Facebook event page:


A phantasmagoric dance party/revue of sight/sound/live performance, celebrating the 8/18/1905 Canton, Ohio birth of Enoch Light, the legendary Project3/Command Records kingpin!

By semi-popular demand, the 1990s phenomenon known as the ENOCH LIGHT BIRTHDAY MEMORIAL GO-GO HAPPENING returns to NE Ohio...ludicrously larger than all of the previous events combined. 

Yes, this is actually HAPPENING on the Beachland Ballroom main stage:

• New live analogue/modular synth arrangements of Dick Hyman’s electronic compositions, provocatively played by JON SONNENBERG AND THE HYMAN LEAGUE!

• Live vocal group performances atop iconic instrumental Project3/ Command recordings, sophisticatedly sung by THE FOUR CHANNELS!

• Enochian mashups and musical media mayhem maniacally manipulated by TRADEMARK G AND THE EVOLUTION CONTROL COMMITTEE!

• Groovy moves, daringly danced by AVA ADORE, DOT KING, AND TALLULAH MOONSHINE!

• Puppets and perplexities, pertinently performed by ZACHARIAH DURR!

• Jockeyed high-fidelity discs and mod visual atmospherics, enigmatically eminated by VJ VENDETTA, JEFF CHENAULT, AND TOTHAR!

• ...AND MORE! Let the Light turn you on!

Jason Forrest

Archive now available!

We've been fans of our next special guest for years.  In that time Jason Forrest has been active under many incarnations: from host of WFMU's AD&D show under his ill-fated DJ name DJ Donna Summer (seems there was already a famous Donna Summer; who knew) and on to starting the Cock Rock Disco and Nightshifters labels and even his own TV channel, the incredible Network Awesome... he even developed his own app.

Busy guy obviously, so we're lucky to snare him for a whole two hours as The Sound Of Plaid's special guest this week.  Tune in as we focus his frenetic energy into a great show of music and interview.  Listen and chat with us during the live show Monday, or catch a repeat airing through the week:

FINALLY!  Our Sound Of Plaid archives and MP3 page are back and serving sounds for your leisurely listening and downloading delight.  Our radio show still happens every week and our Sound Of Plaid archive has swelled to over 230 shows!  You can listen to any of them straight from the page and download as many as you want for free (but we wouldn't say no to a donation).  Our podcast link should now be operating normally too.  Now that we see our MP3 page offerings for the first time in a while, they're now a bit dated... sorry, but we'll try to get some fresh stuff up there in another week or two.

(Thanks to hn3000 for the php help in fixing this!)

The Fallen

Our second music guest episode in a row -- this week it's experimental techno super duo The Fallen!  We've been wanting to get Kevin (FBK) and James (Plural) on our show for a while, and at their great 2014 Fuse Factory performance we cornered them to nail down a date.  Their dark, sparse, atmospheric beats are driven by live energy and gear lust but hide their humor and BFFness which comes out in our interview.  Don't miss it!
