We didn’t know how well synthesizers and chili went together until 2011 when we hosted the first ever Synthesizer Chili Cook Off. The first two events have seen innovation unlike any other from some of the best solo synth masterminds this city has to offer and we expect this year’s showcase will once again surpass our expectations. Each musician is meant to prepare a “sonic interpretation” of the synth-based set they plan to perform, and the audience decides whose pairing is most accurate. The winner is then allowed to return for next year’s cook off. This year's performers/cooks are ROLAN VEGA, who returns to defend his title, as well as competitors LAURA CALLIER, JOHN BREARLY and ERIC HANSS. Live analog visuals will be projected all night, courtesy of past performe and chili cook Andy Ortmann.
