Tetris Tournament

Gallery: The Lab
Date: Saturday, December 12th at 8pm

Bryan Von Reuter organizes a Tetris battle with live music for your game geek pleasure. Tetris will be projected gonzo-sized on the wall of the gallery and the games will proceed March Madness style. A winner will emerge victorious to take the title and the prize (stay tuned for prize updates). Sign-up takes place the night of the event.

Microfiche draw diagrams for your ears and mind.

White Cloud count Spaceman 3, SMiLE, Neu!, and Phillip Glass among their influences and consist of Shiv from Kenya, Nick from Argentina, and James from Oakland. The Deli SF notes that their precision lies in their ability to generate aesthetic dissonance
