Imagine a giant tarantula dancing with a woman in slow motion and you are beginning to dream up the deranged Latin big band Gato Loco Coconino. Teamed with live video wizard luckydave, the ten member group will present an evening of hot and heavy grooves accompanied by a rich visual landscape of live video images and hallucinatory, 1920s-style animation. A.N.T. FEST is six weeks of mayhem featuring fresh material from today's most daring emerging artists. For thirty crazy nights, the festival will push the boundaries of live entertainment by bringing talented performers from many disciplines together under one roof. Ars Nova is dedicated to spotlighting New York's next wave of songwriters, bands, comedy artists, theater-makers, storytellers and genre-defying performers. A.N.T. FEST 08 takes that mission to the next level. Expect an unmissable adventure, from beginning to trend! Check out the full festival line up by searching A.N.T. FEST.
