Taking a cue from the music-festival innovation known as the “silent disco,” where concert-goers experience a DJ’s performance through wireless headphones rather than a traditional PA system, two-man enterprise Hush Hush will present similar shows at local venues. Wednesday’s installation features TIME, the new electro-psych project from former Prince Rama member Michael Collins, as well as locals L’Or and Half Acid and a Skype-based performance from Ginko. Hush Hush’s headphones also act as a lighting component, says organizer Scott Crossman, “with rainbow-colored illuminations emanating from everyone’s heads in sync with the music.” More cool stuff is in the works, so stay tuned.
