The International Noise Conference is a tour/festival hybrid that the Miami-based group the Laundry Room Squelchers have been putting on since 2008. They set up a touring schedule, then reach out to friends and likeminded freaks in the cities they want to visit, and ask those folks to help book a festival type show of nothing but noise acts. The kicker is that no band is allowed to play for longer than 15 minutes.
Lucky me, I was the one that Rat of the Squelchers tapped to help put together the Portland date of the INC. Two days after sending out a Facebook and Twitter message and a couple of e-mails and I had a lineup completely set. A booking dream come true.
I’m now happy to announce the full lineup for the Portland-edition of the 2013 International Noise Conference, happening tomorrow night June 1st at Habesha (801 NE Broadway) starting at 8pm.
