    Lost in London with a pair of headphones

    Want to put your favorite pair of headphones to good use? Spend 14 hours at the London Placard Headphone Festival on July 17. The lineup includes 39 performers each contributing a 20-minute set of electronic music. Enough to make your head spin, I'm sure.

    Maybe there's a way to hear some of these sounds via the web? The press release states: All performances are heard only through headphones... and the whole thing is streamed live on the Net. I'm not entirely sure where to catch the stream, but it may be worth searching out.

    Think of a festival in reverse. Forget about background chatter: for once, it's a chance for some focused listening.
