This list is far from complete, but here are a few flyers, photos, etcetera, along with anything notable about the events.

Abstract Theory
Abstract Theory (August 31, 2002)
Warehouse type rave event. Drunk guy set himself on fire by jumping into a 4 foot flaming wireframe cube as the fire dancers were performing. Talked to him after the crowd cleared out, and he was so pickled he couldn't feel the nifty new 3rd degree burns appearing on his shoulders. Good times :) It also appears from this photograph that we had some unseen visitors at the show. The 2 floating balls of light near the top center were NOT visible at the show, heh.


Doomsday
Doomsday (Autumn 2002 - Winter 2003)
Regular gig; club night was started to try and coax some electronic acts out of the underground.


Last Stand
Last Stand
Weird artsy event at a punk venue. Guests were Aeroplex and Jasper Zan.


Dead of Winter
Dead of Winter
Totally artsy event; candles, decorative ambience, the works. Some candy ravers wandered in, and sat in a circle on the floor. Looking around with rose-tinted vision, they slowly realized "HEY! This isn't a rave! WTF?" Pacifiers in mouth and glow sticks in hand, they made a hasty retreat.


Love's Wake
Love's Wake (February 15, 2003)
This valentine was handed out with flyers and left on tables as a parting gift before the doors opened. Some full fledged urban cowboys showed up at some point, and actually toughed it out. YEEEEE HAW Y'ALL!


Sunday Mass
Sunday Mass (Spring - Summer 2003)
Regular gig; club night mainly started for the local "goth scene" but featured artists and DJ's from varied electronic genres. Similar to Doomsday, though not masterminded by oblyvaeon.


Burning of the Bunny 2003
Burning of the Bunny 2003 (Easter Weekend)
Huge outdoor field type rave. Bonfires. Bunnies. Fire Dancers. Live music and DJ's.
The website for this annual regional event can be found here.


Legion of the Damned
Legion of the Damned
Red-necked butt-rockin' HOE DOWN! Don't ever offer to play with Skullpl8, or go to any of their shows. Hell, just boycott them altogether. I think a little too much of that "death metal doom rock" has gotten into their brains. That, or the lethal quantities of alcohol consumed by the band and their fans (read friends). The rumor is that oblyvaeon front man "oblyvaeon" got his arse kicked by Skullpl8's 400 year old front man "Dave" after oblyvaeon attempted to let 3 financially challenged fans in the door, and after having to explain why his road crew also wasn't paying an entry fee for the event. There's no business like show business :)


Burning of the Bunny 2004
Burning of the Bunny 2004 (Easter Weekend)
Huge outdoor field type rave. Bonfires. Bunnies. Fire Dancers. Live music and DJ's.

Cacophony 2006
Circuit-bent noise show featured KRLL ov oblyvaeon, XDUGEF, Ctephin, and Jack Acid ov Pirate Audio. Ctephin and Xdugef had the honor of being ejected from the stage by the club owners during their sets.


Studio 360
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...
The show featured oblyvaeon, Procession 1340, and Bella Sotto and took place in the performance area of Studio 360, an independent recording studio operated by country music artist Vance Phillips. The intimate setting belied the significance of the evening as oblyvaeon sold out of the album Ashamed to be Human, making it officially out of print.


God Module with oblyvaeon
God Mod
With God Module, Pittersplatter, and Axis. And a horde of zombies.


Shangri-La, St. Louis, Missouri
Shangri-La Misery (August 10, 2007 - St. Louis, Missouri)
Improvised vegetarian dish made from KRLL ov oblyvaeon and R. Loftiss ov The Gray Field Recordings served over a backtrack of Ctephin. KRLL could be seen around the St. Louis area Converting Vegetarians in carnivorous delight after the show.


Enemy, Chicago, Illinois
Enemy Ill Annoys (August 11, 2007 - Chicago, Illinois)
Featured KRLL ov oblyvaeon and R. Loftiss ov The Gray Field Recordings in a real-time cross country collaboration with Ctephin, who were broadcasting a live feed of wild heathen percussion and naked enochian chant over the internet from the comfort of home. The (still wet) painting you see above was created by Gauge during the show as an interpretation of the performance and was gifted to Enemy, Chicago IL.


Cacophony 2007
Cacophony 2007
Featured KRLL, Ctephin, Areo-Plex, and Simplton. Highlights of the evening were a rousing game of Solitaire, some unbridled hero worship, and a forced march of terrified fickle rave kiddies who showed no PLUR (shame on them). True to form, Ctephin cleared the room. Many thanks to the owners, operators, and volunteers of the IAO Gallery.


OK Electric 2007
OK Electric 2007
Part of a two day 'performance/workshop/forum/festival' hosted by Living Arts of Tulsa. Ran for the weekend of October 12-13 and featured guest speakers on subjects electronica, video screenings, musicians' gear swapmeet, and many live performances. Also featured, uh... some of "Tulsa's finest burlesque girls".


Cacophony 2008
Cacophony 2008
This 3rd annual Festival of Sound featured KRLL, MusiM, Novachild. Several strange and unexplained 'events' occurred during this show, including cords mysteriously unplugging themselves and software shutting down autonomously on one of my own computers. After reviewing and analyzing the system and application logs of the machine that was misbehaving, there was no evidence of standard-issue bugs or crashes and absolutely nothing to indicate that the machine had encountered any errors whatsoever. Hmm. And yes, I am a certified expert in this field, heh. This year's event also featured a MIDI Seminar by oblyvaeon, as suggested by previous years' guests. This was probably the first of many seminars, and new presentations are in the works to include other topics of interest to the community and our guests. Special thanks to our sponsors this year: Infusion Systems for providing an I-CubeX hardware device and Bome Software for providing their MIDI Translator software, which were both used during the MIDI Seminar and KRLL's live performances. And as usual, many thanks again to our hosts: the owners, operators, and volunteers of the IAO Gallery.
