Auris Apothecary is pleased to announce BLACK MASS XXVIII, an intimate concert featuring an exhibition of three experimental artists who seemingly have no use for band members. Each individual uniquely highlights creative methods of utilizing their respective instruments, ranging from the purely acoustic avant-percussion of TYLER DAMON, evolving into the part acoustic/part amplified violin terror of the eternally-touring JOEY MOLINARO, and finishing the night with full on electronics of harsh noise from ADAM SOMMER’s dual 8-track cassette manipulation. We are excited to open the Artifex Guild up for its first official “concert,” but due to the darkness rolling in early nowadays & it being a Sunday, we’ll be starting at 9PM sharp. Come early!

Tyler Damon [Bloomington, IN]
Solo experimental percussion which blends polyrhythmic time signatures & unconventional techniques to form a unique miasma of sounds.

Joey Molinaro [Pittsburgh, PA / the Road]
One-man wrecking ball of amplified violin, circuit bent devices & scathing social commentary through vocal assaults.
