    After the steaming success of last year’s Beatburger at Arcade Lane, Beatburger has truly bitten back at Adelaide Fringe in 2011. The first of two unique shows invaded the main room of Hotel Tivoli on Saturday night, sparking up three screens of live video mix, a Bang & Olufsen sound system and three talented acts offering rare live performances. First up was local scene long-time contributor Pete Kolomitsev performing as PhaseLockLoop, followed by special guest Ulrick Eck from Spielkinder who took the night from Pete’s tapestry of sounds and beats in a funky minimal techno direction. Supermarket followed our their quirky breakbeat sounds and hijacked advertisements. The original Beatburger show featured Supermarket alongside local Adelaide live act Atomitek and was nominated for two Adelaide Fringe Awards, including Best Music Event. Attendees to Beatburger Bites Back were quick to send us positive feedback after the show, complimenting the crowd’s warm and relaxed vibe and the intimacy and originality of the night’s entertainment. If you missed the show or want another dose, the coming March 5th show features guest hip hop crew d33p h33t and disco-punk showman Tomas Ford letting loose along with your hosts, Supermarket. There’s also a special Beatburger Bites Back video playlist waiting for your viewing and listening pleasure, live on youtube.

This year’s new works included ‘Pipe Dream’ (a psychedelic waterslide ride cut to a funky breakbeat), ‘When Sparks Fly’ (a looping abstract solo work by Dan Monceaux), and ‘Bit-Tech’ (a lo-fi black and white pixel animation which is currently playing on the Rundle Lantern, a multi-storey public light sculpture at the prominent Adelaide intersection of Pultney and Rundle Streets). The pair also performed as Supermarket with their new audio-visual show ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ at the launch of the event. Dan and Emma are proud of their latest accolade and also wish to congratulate the award’s winner Kyriaki Maragozidis and encouragement award recipient, Adam Murakami on their achievements.
