The Third Annual Circuit Bending Festival of Music and Art in Downtown Manhattan. A week of concerts, art installations, and workshops celebrating a most unusual art form. The first and only festival in the country where one can see a musical instrument built from a singing teddy bear, this year's event will be held April
19-23, 2006. The festival will bring together musicians, performers, and visual artists from around the world who not only push the circuit bending genre forward but are on the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene. In addition to evening concerts, novices and experienced benders of all ages can participate in workshops led by the best in the business during the day.
Tuesday, April 18th: Festival Kick-Off party with R. Luke Dubois, Michael Ostrowski, and Tristan Perich.
