Here's Some more info on who will be at the benefit show:

Robert Rich (Live Performance)
Robert Rich has been writing electronic music and building his
own synthesizers since the age of 13. His all-night Sleep
Concerts, first performed in 1982 for a sleeping audience at
Stanford, have become legendary among fans of ambient and space
music. In 1996, almost ten years after his last sleep concert, he
performed his first ever radio sleep concert, broadcast over KUCI
airwaves. His music has since become KUCI staple, and he's been
featured in the KUCI Program Guide twice. Robert will be featured
on the upcoming KUCI benefit compilation, "Loraine."

Surface 10 (Live Performance)
Surface 10's Dean DeBenedicts hails from Santa Monica. His new
material combines cutting-edge IDM music with the time-tested
influence of electronic music's pioneers. He has one self-titled
release on the Hypnotic label, and another one on the way. He's
featured on numerous Hypnotic compilations and will be featured on
the upcoming KUCI benefit compilation, "Loraine."

Lexaunculpt (Live Performance)
Lexaunculpt is a fairly new addition to southern California's
electronic road map. Alex Graham has performed under the monikers
Hazel Window and Your Choroid Coat, before settling on
Lexaunculpt. Isophlux records will release a track of his on their
upcoming "Dirty America" compilation and will later release a
Lexaunculpt EP. Orange, a new OC label founded by IDM web master
extrodinare Gonzi Merchan will also be releasing a Lexaunculpt
single. Alex will be featured on the upcoming KUCI benefit
compilation, "Loraine."

Chowderhead (DJ)
Chowderhead, known to fellow knights of the turn tables as Dave
Mosso, has been shaking up Orange County for years. A native San
Franciscan and graduate of UCI's studio art program, Dave got his
start as a wee lad up at KUCI. After revolutionizing OC's
airwaves, he's moved on to form Nightnoise, The Gypsy Den's Sunday
Night chill-out weekly. Thinking that any free time is wasted
time, he's started the Nightnoise E-mail cavalcade and joined up
with guitar manipulator extrodinaire G.E. Stinson to from the
improvisational sound collective known as The Splinter Group.

The 9-5 SuperSpy (DJ)
I've lived in Huntington Beach since I was in diapers. I do a
weekly radio show entitled Space Disco For Fish Tacos and when I'm
foolish enough I write articles and reviews for Fix, the OC Weekly
and the KUCI program guide. In addition, I'm founding Peach, my
joint record label and design company. I claim to be the utmost
authority on fish tacos, and I think that Jim Washburn needs to be
hog tied in a Mexican prison for having the audacity to write that
Super Pollo has better fish tacos than Wahoo's or the Tacos De
Salmon at Taco Mesa.

Christopher Robin (DJ)
I've known this noise junky since the fifth grade. We spent an
unhealthy amount of time playing Nintendo and watching Robotech,
and not much has changed. Chris hosts Lnchpl.e.rotic.x.fix.e.ation
(don't ask) and Riders Of The Plastic Groove (Alongside DJ Kyle).
With some friends, he concocted last summer's outdoor weekly
"Green Eggs And Ham" and Halloween's "Sleepy Hollow." For you GEAH
types, the refugee opossum family in my garage heard that they
might be doing something again soon.

Mr. Lumpy (DJ)
Poor Mr. Lumpy. Also known as Steve Center, this funky monkey
busted breakbeat all over OC's airwaves for years. THE MAN,
fearing a revolution, forced Mr. Lumpy to shave his head and
deported him to Torrance. If that wasn't enough, the humiliating
corporate stiffs that run his cell block make him wear a suit and
tie (the white man's noose). After an unfortunate shower incident
and a light sentence for good behavior, Mr Lumpy's probation
allows him to bust out the funk (in moderate doses) every Sunday
at Nightnoise and the occasional conjugal visit like this one.

Space Disco For Fish Tacos has been on the air for two years, featuring
weekly live performances by electronic musicians from southern California
and abroad. Tune in every Wednesday evening from 8-10pm on KUCI 88.9fm,
