(Shaker Maker) Using groundbreaking 3-D technology originally intended for Michael Jackson's farewell tour, Los Angeles-based electro-punk/hip-hop duo Kid Infinity will once again make history as they aim to take the live music experience to new heights with their interactive stereoscopic three-dimensional production.

The second-ever Kid Infinity 3-D Live show will take place Saturday, February 5 at the historic Alexandria Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

LA party rappers The 87 Stick Up Kids and no holds barred electronic misfits Captain Ahab will jump start the festivities, presented by MFG Productions and DANCEiSM, two of the top event producers in Los Angeles.

For the encore performance, Kid Infinity will again push the envelope and have been meticulously refining and expanding their fully immersive set. Along with the help of several animators, the duo have created 3-D animations completely customized to their high-energy electro-fueled music and have also written new music for the occasion. Among many other visuals, geometric shapes, such as colorful cubes, will twist, bounce and hover above the crowd creating an experience that truly feels out of a Philip K. Dick story.

Not surprisingly, this technology is currently being coveted by marquee electronic acts and major pop stars. However, Kid Infinity are the only ones to put it to use. "This is just the beginning of what is possible for live visual experiences," exclaims Pardeiro. "We just want to make a fun unique night and show people something they have never seen before. If we can give everyone a little taste of what the future might hold in the process, that's cool too."

This mind-bending technology is the proprietary product of Visitech 3D, the 3-D research and development team commissioned by Michael Jackson to build a 90' x 30' 3-D LED wall for his "This Is It" series of concerts. A leader in advanced 3-D visual experiences for movies, television, advertising, and sporting events, the Southern California-based company boasts more than 26 years of experience in the film business and the advancement of 3-D technology and includes a think tank of industry veterans from Industrial Light & Magic, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Warner Bros., Paramount and Google. Following Jackson's death, Huber, who spends his days as office manager for the company, approached his boss with the idea of letting his band try out the technology in a real world environment. He agreed and they set about finding animators to bring their songs to life.

From the moment the sweat-soaked band stepped off the stage, Los Angeles has been abuzz about the high-tech futuristic experience, clamoring for another trip down the rabbit hole. Ask anyone who witnessed the event and they just say, "you had to be there." Now's your chance. "When we began testing this concept it started to freak us out how magical it can feel," exclaims Huber. "We can literally make things float out over the crowd." The future is here, and it's in 3-D.
