We’ll have some good music at TtW again this year. Spinning records will be Jenn Devious, Select DC's resident DJ spinning coldwave, minimal synth, noise, ebm, industrial - check out some of her mixes.
Joining her will be the DC band Screen Vinyl Image, who played the after-party at the first Theorizing the Web in 2011. Expect Friday and Saturday after-parties full of volume and awkward dancing.
music at #ttw14!
