If you are in the Oakland, CA area, here's your chance to see a Buchla Electric Music Box live. Chris Muir will be playing one with Remember the Toykillers. Note pictured here is the 200e.

"Saturday, August 2 Remember the Toykillers + Oaxacan 8pm, $6-10
The original toy killers consisted of Charles k. Noyes and Mark Miller (both on drums), featuring various cohorts like Arto Lindsay, John Zorn, Bill Laswell, Elliott Sharp, (as Mark would say, "anybody who would lower themselves to playing with us.") The band started as an improvised music duo of clattering percussion, fireworks and noise before transforming itself into a messy no wave band featuring the creme of the '80s NYC downtown scene. Tonight's homage paying ensemble, features Miller and Noyes, with Henry Kaiser (guitar), Allen Whitman (bass), Anantha R. Krishnan (mridangam), and Chris Muir (Buchla synth).

Flavorpill writes about Oakland’s Oaxacan 'Oaxacan understands that noise is a matter of texture and timbre not just plugging in your effects pedals and turning all the amps to ten. Like kindred experimentalists Double Leopards or Climax Golden Twins, Oaxacan prefer night swimming in murky, inky pools of gauzy per cussion and reverb-drenched vocal abstraction.'"
