Upcoming Events in Saigon

For those of you short circuiting in the blistering heat of March, a night to provide an electro-sensory respite with the cool glow of bleeps and blips.

This performance marks the first Vietnamese appearance of Bottlesmoker, one of Asia's best bedroom-pop experimental outfits.  After playing with the likes of Architecture in Helsinki and releasing three albums in the past five years,  this Indonesian duo is poised to blanket the Earth with their distinctive brand of instantly likeable indie-tronica.  Performing alongside French street artist and new media wiz-kid un escargot vide?,this should be a performance to remember in a city starved for experimentation. Support provided by the sleek, minimalist dance tunes of ism, the off-kilter tango of Krisztian Kelner,  DJs Fu and MicMac, and VJ Discocactus of multi-sensory dance deviants crew Jetlag.
