Bitchin’ Bajas – ‘Live At The Hideout’ boxset
During the month of January in 2013 Bitchin’ Bajas held residency at the Hideout in Chicago, IL. Performing every Tuesday of the month, playing two different sets each week. Collaborating with friends, playing with films in quadraphonic, using the Bitchitronics set up live and changing where the performance took place in the bar helped vary each set. Using several recording devices, all rehearsals and performances of each week were documented. Later it was all edited and mixed making these six sides a collage of the entire residency.
