Looking for something different? Sample some of the 70 bands appearing at this year's International Noise Conference. Organized by local iconoclast Rat Bastard, the annual conflagration of extraordinary, entertaining, and just plain annoying experimental acts ranges from the vaguely familiar (Otto von Schirach, Alex Diaz/Xela Zaid) to the provocatively mysterious (E.L.E. Rival Circuit) and draws from cities as far-flung as Austin, Texas and Providence, Rhode Island. Bring a pair of open ears.
