NOISE | International Noise Conference 

It's fitting that Rochester's upcoming International Noise Conference is billed as a "conference" rather than a "fest." Typically speaking, the latter term evokes images of flower crowns, $9 Coronas, and a general air of forced positivity. Holding a conference is to engage in a meeting of the minds, and if the names of some of the many noise artists playing this year are any indication — Laundry Room Squelchers, Dry Heave and The Neckbeards, and Rash, to name a few — this meeting is going to be a wonderfully depraved one. Mostly featuring noise artists from Rochester and Buffalo, the Conference serves as a humble regional showcase for a genre that's overlooked far too often. In a world where everything from bedroom EDM to obscure psych-rock gets its own weekend-long festival, aren't the contact-mic'd few of the world entitled to one too?

The International Noise Conference will take place on Wednesday, June 29, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue.8 p.m. $5.;
