“The multi-award nominated audio-visual show for beat fanatics and mind expansion enthusiasts returns! You'll wiggle, gaze, giggle and wonder at Supermarket's latest electronic beat-driven, philosophical experience. Featuring massive multi-screen visuals, hi-fidelity original tunes, extra special guest performers and a well stocked bar, Beatburger bites back bigger and tastier than ever!”

Beatburger returns after its Adelaide Fringe debut in 2010, where it received Fringe Award nominations for Best Music Event and the InSpace Award (for experimental arts). Conceived by Dan Monceaux and Emma Sterling (Supermarket) the show provides a platform for world-class live electronic music performance and multi-screen video mixing, interspersed with zany remixed commercials and consumer culture surprises. Video becomes another instrument in the musical arrangement and turning a live show into a sensory experience is key as imagery reacts to original beats in a live audio-visual experience for post-clubbers.

Scaling up to include four new support acts, founding duo Supermarket will be joined by local and touring artists representing a diversity of underground sounds and rhythms. On Feb 26th, special guest from Munich, Spielkinder (Ulrich Eck) plays live minimal techno to audio-reactive visuals. Also performing is Adelaide-based PhaseLockLoop (Pete Kolomitsev) who has contributed to Adelaide's live electronic music scene for over 12 years via acts Supaphatass and Replicas. Feb 26th is also PhaseLockLoop's solo debut.

On March 5th, emerging South Australian experimental hip hop duo d33p h33t takes the stage. MC Jack Vaulhartz and DJ Appsii bend the hip hop genre to the dark and the deep, before multi-WAMI award winning Western Australian disco-punk showman Tomas Ford snatches the mic. Tomas Ford is like Bowie on acid for the rave generation, and will be treating the night as an after-party for his own solo Fringe show 'Gentleman & Disconcerter'.

Holding it all together is Supermarket's passion for beats, visuals, technology and new modes of performance. Supermarket's Adelaide Fringe following has grown annually since their debut show 'audio-visual immersion' in 2008. The Adelaide-based pair consisting of Mr Beats (Dan Monceaux) and VJ Buttons (Emma Sterling) first launched Supermarket after an artist residency in New York in 2007, and have toured North America twice with their rich and varied beat-driven audio-visual live performance. Locally they have received multiple SALA (South Australian Living Artists) awards for their previous works and shows and performed at film festivals in Sydney and Perth.

The show is proudly supported by Bang & Olufsen, who are providing a state-of-the-art sound system for each show. The Tivoli's fine-dining restaurant will be transformed into a high-fidelity electronic performance space, with a convenient bar, and the best production available.

All artists are available for interview, DJ sets, photo opportunities and we welcome event photographers and show reviews. Please contact our media co-ordinator, Polly Metzer for details.
