Forged from a desire to incite more conversation and camaraderie within the experimental music community, the first annual Hard Reset Festival offers up a night of celebration in sound manipulation. Created as an experiment in itself, Hard Reset is an ardent attempt to collide the circles of like-minded artists by showcasing talents from every sub sect of the experimental music community. The evening feature sets by sonic misfits from Atlanta and beyond, including Zap Brautigan, Soothsayer (pictured above), CIVILS, IndigoNowhere, and MothSweat.


$5 suggested donation. 5 p.m. Thurs., Dec. 21. Precious Flower House, 218 Flora Ave.
