Game Show 4The Columbus Museum of Art's Game Show is back!  And once again, The ECC's TradeMark G. provides a soundtrack to the polyester-clad hosts and the offbeat games.  Each show has entirely new games and characters, and the previous shows have found the Game Show nailing its own style more and more.  This one promises to up the ante!  It also caught the attention of the Columbus Dispatch, who featured it as the lead article for their Weekender section:

Rowdy adults-only affair quite a night at museum
By  Kevin Joy
The Columbus Dispatch Thursday February 16, 2012 10:56 AM

Pop quiz, fun seekers: Name a distinguished local institution that offers interactive games, saucy dialogue, fabulous prizes and plentiful Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Did you guess the Columbus Museum of Art? No?  [...]

A cast of about 20 players — including Starliner and bell-bottom-clad co-host Tod Tabler (also known as Columbus artist Jeff Fernengel) — stages the show. The retro costumes, shimmering backdrop and chintzy music recall the “1970s game-show randiness” that has long been relegated to a land of Technicolor parody...


Columbus Museum of Art, 480 E. Broad St. (614-221-6801,

SHOWTIME » 8 p.m. Friday 
TICKETS » $10, or $5 for members (recommended for adults and older teenagers because of mild language and mature humor)


Hope you'll come.

Raymond Scott Rewired

The Sound Of Plaid
episode 2014.02.24:


On this Monday's radio show we welcome very special guests Otis Fodder (Bran Flakes) and Irwin Chusid (WFMU; Raymond Scott Archives) to celebrate the album release of RAYMOND SCOTT REWIRED!

Three mixologists who work under group names — The Bran FlakesThe Evolution Control Committee, and Go Home Productions — were given hundreds of recordings owned by the Raymond Scott estate, spanning the 1930s to the 1980s: jazz, orchestral, electronic, experimental, studio chatter, never-heard rarities. Each chemist contributed six audio montages with new titles, and they collaborated on Scott’s signature tune “Powerhouse.”

The project, RAYMOND SCOTT REWIRED, was produced by Scott historian/archivist Irwin Chusid. Official release date is February 18 on Basta.

Otis and Irwin will discuss the album with co-collaborator TradeMark and co-host Frilly (but without Mark Vidler of Go Home Productions, who couldn't make it) and play many of the album's 19 tracks including the joint collaboration finale of the album, Raymond Scott's classic Powerhouse.

Listen and chat with us during the live show Monday, or catch a repeat airing through the week:

ECC @ Fuse Factory's Frequency Friday (Feb 03)

Concert and Performance Dates

ThimbletronOhhhh, it has been a while.

For the Thimbletron, specifically.  We had intended to re-present it at the Inspiration Manifestation show a couple months ago, but... um, we couldn't find it.  Oh c'mon, give us a break -- we've relocated ECC operations back to Ohio from San Francisco, and almost all of the ECC studios is still in boxes until we get the studio rebuilt in another one to two weeks.

ThimbletronAnd frankly, although we've now located the Thimbletron... um... we're not positive it works.  Well, I suppose we've never been completely confident about the safety of thimbletronic radiation at public performances like this, but we always manage to make a show happen irregardless of public safety concerns.

Especially when it's another Frequency Friday from Fuse Factory.  They've been supporters of ECC enough to bring us from San Francisco to Columbus for shows, and now that we're local we're hungry for more.  Check out our company for this Friday's show:

February Frequency Fridays: Evolution Control Committee + Le Scrambled Debutante + Doctah X + Solumenata

Our February Frequency Fridays show features culture jammers/mashup band Evolution Control Committee (CMH), electronica-dub artist Doctah X (CMH), and sonic dadists Le Scrambled Debutante (Louisville, KY).

Date: Friday, February 3 2012. Location: Wild Goose Creative (2491 Summit St. 43202). Admission: $10. Doors open 8pm. Our Frequency Fridays 2011-2012 season is supported by a generous grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

Stay tuned -- coming up, another Columbus Museum Of Art Game Show and other great projects to come.
