w/ Beauty Pageant, Dave Stone, Stone Hen - Back in 2012, when we all thought the world would burn by way of Mayan apocalypse, local artist Mister Ben conceived a monthly concert series. The initial idea had a recurring block of performers playing noise music while videographer Chad Eivins tracked the progress from spring to Halloween. These shows, usually at now-defunct art space Mushmaus, were known to start late and end in the wee hours with a massive group jam. Maybe anti-music isn't the right term, but it's the first that comes to mind. The prodigal son returns in 2014 with much of the same grit and grime. Local heads like legendary sax-player Dave Stone joins newcomers Willis and Mister Ben's own Beauty Pageant for a line-up that's certainly not for everybody, but a spectacle nevertheless. Maybe the term "noise" turns you off? Remember the squares who turned their noses up at punk rock in '60s? Maybe in 30 years, free-form sound art will be used to sell the new Mazda-whatever between episodes of The Real Housewives of NEW New York.
