M.A.S.S. IV: Xhurches Symposium: Golden Retriever, Earth & You 

When: Sun., Dec. 22, 8 p.m. 2013
Tonight Alberta Abbey plays host to M.A.S.S IV, put on by the local druidic denizens of Northeast's Xhurch (ex-church) collective. For years now, the event has showcased artists and musicians within varying sanctified spaces, creating mind-warping installations and elaborate soundscapes to accompany the visual element. With architectural resonance, the Abbey is a natural venue to experience Portland's experimental and improvisational realms, which will be juxtaposed this evening with performance art and a retrospective of alternative church-spaces across the country. Golden Retriever headline this year's incarnation, with droney ambience and warbling synth backdropped against effects-laden bass clarinet blasts evoking the darkly triumphant instrumental zones of Bowie's Low. The event is free, with donations highly encouraged. WYATT SCHAFFNER
