Transistor electronic sound art festival to be held June 10-11-12, 2011 at The Walnut Room, Denver, CO.

Symbolic insight presents the fifth annual transistor electronic sound art festival on June 10, 11, and 12, 2011 at The Walnut Room, 3131 Walnut St. Denver, Colorado. Transistor festival is a community event bringing together like-minded, talented artists, with people who are interested in supporting innovative and modern electronic sound art. Building on a grassroots and a DIY attitude, transistor has grown into a strong local group of artists and musicians who continue to bring international attention to Denver with their work. The Walnut Room, voted the city's best small venue, is a nightclub with great pizza and an amazing sounding main stage which will showcase 8-10 acts each of the three nights. There will also be 3-4 acts in the front room which will be piped to out the patio speakers. For the all ages alternatives, we will have acts at the Walnut Room Pizzeria (2 Broadway) on Friday and Saturday, also textures ambient showcase at the Gypsy House Cafe (1279 Marion Street) on Sunday. The complete line up of acts confirmed to perform will be announced by May 2 with full details at
