Music Box to host bands for recording projects

Posted By on Wed, May 16, 2012 at 1:31 PM

Move over Piety Street Studios. The Music Box, aka Dithyrambalina, aka the Shantytown Sound Laboratory, was one of the highlights of contemporary art and musical collaborations in 2011. The Bywater installation was to be dismantled and another project was to begin on the lot, but those plans were postponed and the Music Box reopened in April. It's open weekends through June. It's just been announced that several bands will record at the site in June, including Japanther, Dark Dark Dark, Black Dice, Thurston Moore and Javelin. There will also be more concerts, like the one above, on June 8-9. The Music Box is to be dismantled afterward, or at least that's the current plan. There are more videos of activities at the Music Box on the New Orleans Airlift's YouTube page.
