There’s a great lineup at Springwater tonight featuring Texas-based cellist, instrument-builder and kinetic artist Darcy Neal; Theatre Intangible participant and Circuit Benders’ Ball alum Joey Molinaro; and up-and-coming Nashville psych rock band Linear Downfall.

Go have a look at Darcy Neal’s circuit-bent, kinetic, and animatronic art. It’s jaw-dropping. Here are just a few examples:

Darcy helped build this steel armature for a giant Mexican Red Knee Tarantula for her animatronic life-size dinosaur company.

Tentacle Oscillator, a commission from Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.

Darcy also sells her own unique light theremin kits!

Nashville’s Linear Downfall carry Wayne Coyne’s seal of approval:

… Soon after, the band drove to Oklahoma and recorded with Wayne Coyne at The Flaming Lips frontman’s home studio. After this meeting, Linear Downfall was asked to join The Flaming Lips on a record-breaking one day tour, sponsored by MTV’s O Music Awards. The two bands met in Baton Rouge, LA, to play King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man” and the Flaming Lips/Lightning Bolt collaboration “I’m Working at NASA on Acid”.

Some of the Linear Downfall members are interested in participating in an upcoming Theatre Intangible improv. I’ll let you know more as soon as we put something together.

The bill also features local noise rock band Onri. More info on the Facebook event page.
