Beatbox in Brooklyn & Poland + discounts at mic(ism)The 16th (tomorrow!) & 17th of October, sees some beatbox antics invading Brooklyn's eighth annual d.u.m.b.o. art under the bridge festival. On the 16th, Kid Lucky, Adamatta, Ben Zviti, Chesney Snow, Alex, Bill Etra, and Berkoy will perform "Beatbox - Visual Vocal Acrobatics". This is a collection of live audiovisual performance pieces whereby the beatboxers are able to control and mix the visuals with their audio - all in realtime. The 17th sees Kid Lucky mixing his vocal sound art with Rafael Universal-Suarez's thought provoking image projections. Both shows will be at The Soundbox, 37 Main St. Entrance is a $5 suggested donation.
