Best Local Experimental / Fringe Band / Artist

In the right setting, an AIROES show can be a religious experience, or a life-threatening one. Jeph Burgoon's one-man act gains inspiration from Nurse with Wound, Kid 606 and everything else in between. A disco beat kicks everything into motion and then collapses into total chaos. Bits of hip-hop and truncated urban speak degrade into screaming industrial noise. Each song consists of short, controlled bursts of pure, electronic hatred, usually delivered in scuba gear.
