Julie Vallimont and Noah VanNorstrand – together forming the techno contra band Buddy System – are set to descend on Portland this spring! Buddy System combines the best of live fiddling, improvisation, and driving electronic beats. Noah (of Great Bear Trio and Giant Robot Dance fame) plays fiddle, foot percussion, didgeridoo, and provides vocals. Julie (member of Nor’easter, Firecloud, and more), runs the computer, piano, synths, accordion, and jawharp. Together, they “create live sonic landscapes that’ll put you in a dance trance.”
Calling for Noah and Julie will be Will Mentor, he of the little round glasses and impeccable timing.
We’ll be filling up the hall with disco balls, black lights, lasers, glowsticks, and the usual hijinks.
