Via App and Gobby are also booked for the two-night event next month.
HEAD EXPLODE.GIF will take place at a TBA location in Chinatown on May 6th, then head to an art gallery in Cambridge on the 7th.
The new festival skews towards the noisier, industrial side of techno, with a special focus on live hardware sets. Rhode Island producer Container will top the lineup alongside a number of acts from Brooklyn's DIY scene, including Via App, Cienfuegos, Pvre Matrix and Inhalants, the L.I.E.S.-affiliated duo of Jahiliyya Fields and Patricia. Boston's own Isabella is also on the bill (you can hear a recording of her live set from last month here, at the 1:41:00 mark), as is Philly producer Profligate and UNO label artist Gobby (who'll be returning to play in his hometown).
The first night goes down at a Chinatown location TBA, and then the festival moves to Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery in Cambridge the following night. The lineups for each night haven't been announced yet. You can find more info at the event's Facebook page.
