Arriving from New York with the very latest creations from the sonic design studio of Wollesonic Laboratories, cracker jack drummer Kenny Wollesen joins up with San Diego's own DIY (do it yourself) marching band. Bombshell headed by Sean Conway for a night of kaleidophonic experiment and play. This first time meeting of these east coast/west coast sonic explorers promises to be full of soniferous surprises...not to mention purring sleep grinders, balloon bassoon wails and Duchampian gamelans played by New York and San Diego’s finest!
