Want to record with Xiu Xiu?

Xiu Xiu‘s percussion master Ches Smith is about to go all new music on our asses. While manning the merch booth at each of Xiu Xiu’s upcoming tour stops, Smith will be recording sounds made by fans–bleeps, bloops, what have you–for a new project, entitled Y/OUR TOWN. Smith will incorporate each city’s audio snippets into percussion pieces written for each town, and at the end of the tour, free mp3s of those compositions will be posted on Xiu Xiu’s website for your downloading pleasure.

Want to get in on the project? Take a gander at Xiu Xiu’s remaining tour dates after the cut for your chance to contribute.
