The Noisician Coalition is known for at least two unique features: electronic music generated by instruments mounted with modified bullhorns and its red-and-black bohemian biker-gang/clown-posse look. The Noisicians will shed their signature garb at the Underpants Party and Fundraiser. The pants-optional event will raise money to build new instruments, repair old ones and promote battery recycling.

  Coalition members typically build their own instruments. Ashley Shabankereh plays a "Shabonkahonk," a euphonium topped with a megaphone. "This is free-form music," she says. "I'm happy to have a change from a classical form of music." Members use everything from bullhorns and assorted electronic parts to trash cans, bottles and hubcaps. One member created "The Pacified Amplifier" — actually an amplified pacifier — for a baby girl.

  The fundraiser features performances by the Noisician Coalition, Kali, Natasha Fiore, Matt Thomas (The Human Blockhead) and ActionActionReaction. There is a "Pants Off Dance Off," a silent auction and a raffle for prizes which include three-course meals cooked in the winner's home, a cocktail party for 15 hosted by a professional mixologist, photographs and kung fu classes. Admission is $5 and includes your first raffle ticket. — Lora Ghawally
