What is a Live PA? Is that like playing a laptop over the PA? Why not just play an actual show with instruments and stuff? I don't get it.

I am pretty sure Pnuma Live PA = Pnuma trio minus keys, with a bit more sampling.

prefuse should be dope, along with pnuma. Lipp Service(Elliot Lipp and Alex B from pnuma) is pretty cool, anybody else catch that after party in The World Grotto in Knoxville???? Pnuma, Lipp and Pretty Lights!!!!!! Mesmerizing to say the least. Wish i could see this show. Holla!

Desert Drifter its people like you why the trio prob plays hardly ever. Pnuma Trios mucis is outragrously skilled and the closest form of as good as a trio gets in electronic jam excluding the new deal. Pnuma PA is lane on drum kit while Alex plays samples for trip hop glitch noises. I used to go out of my way to see the trio, have talked to all of them numerous times. Now when I see them I tell them how theyr stepping in the wrong direction. Lineup looks good tho, and ghostland is def worth seeing, along with EOTO and mad professor.

This event was a blast last year....hope that I can make it out this year. But I'm thinking that a weekend trip, the next weekend to Colorado, may be more in order....

pretty sure sat and sun will be all ages, a change from previous years. due to a venue change.

I'm living in the Grand Canyon right now and I was already planning on going to the gem show in February.. I will definitely make it now that I know Eliot Lipp and EOTO will be there!!! I haven't heard anything by the other artists yet, but I'm sure it'll be mind-blowing. This will also be my first time in Tucson. Anyone have any suggestions??

Oh I forgot to add I just caught Pnuma Trio opening for Sound Tribe in Flagstaff awhile back.. good stuff! Hopefully a PA set will be as good.

You forgot to mention. The sickest show of the bunch. DUMPSTAPHUNK will be playing at the hut on fourth avenue on Feb. 9th. The sickest New Orleans funk ever thrown down. See you all there or you will regret it.
