Artistery Closing Week


The Artistery (map) Southeast
Thu., March 10, 8 p.m. 2011 All Ages


The end is approaching swiftly for the Artistery, but there's still time to pay another visit to the sweltering basement—not to mention the solid, well-priced used vinyl store that's housed in the all-ages venue's ground floor. Tonight sees a wide-ranging bill of local experimental music-makers, from the pulverizing grindcore of JonnyX and the Groadies to the avanter-than-avant free jazz of Why I Must Be Careful. There's also the deconstructionist noise-folk of Ghost to Falco, which sometimes transmogrifies into stoner-stomp rock, and the ominously serene abstract hymns of Liz Harris, who usually performs as Grouper and has two new albums on the horizon. Among the many, many wonderful things the Artistery has done for the local music community—serving as a haven for all-ages shows not the least among them—is their fearless support of the city's experimental music scene. Tonight's a chance to celebrate the different, disparate fringes in one fell swoop. NED LANNAMANN
