for the first summertime vibrations, please fry your logic boards and
sleep with me and the punks down by the river after the show. aquanet

Sound poet & junk noise collagist sasquatch ID M Theft Able from the
moose infested blueberry scrub of rural Maine has found a new
migratory route that plunks him right on our laps for the evening.
Mr. TheftAble's performances are thrilling exploding tapestries of
live sound effects and vocal acrobatics. Your proverbial stick will
be slapped. When he's not engaged in debates with red squirrels or
touring, he runs the entertaining Mang Disc imprint and the virtually
squeezable institution/website. check him out here in

Goat of Arms (Ivanna Bergese & and Nell Ma'luf) are a duo of from the
Boston that make imaginary kyrgyz pop music out of a multi-phonic soup
of drums, voices and accordion. The 100% Breakfast label will be
putting out their debut record this fall. check out an old cut from
2004 here:

As a bonus treat, Ivanna from Goat of Arms will also be DJing the MPBE
proceedings. From makin punks sweat at Providence warehouse parties
to rockin bboy/bgirl battles in Argentina (where her family's from),
she's been dropping needles on eclectic selections for the past 10
years, doing radio broadcasts for WZBC, and regularly jammin with
Boston's experimental party music weekly, Beat Research. A restless
activist and promoter of creative endeavors, she runs a traveling art
show in Argentina and Chile called 'Escupido de la Panza de la Bestia'
a cultural exchange that will be coming to Boston this fall.

Western Mass print & noise artist Lauren Pakradooni will perform solo
as PAK, where she manipulates scratchy four track tapes &
contact-mic'ed machines into a loopy bliss - sometimes like salt on a
margarita glass sometimes like grit in a canvas shoe. She likes hair,
crooked things, zombies, and oil slick. There's some pretty
incredible posters she's made out there, plus her sonic output is
grippable from the indomitable Breaking World Records. an

Lastly but not leastly, we'll hear fifteen minutes of factual deposits
from Mr. Matthew Krefting! Recently, he told me his lecture was going
to be on the subject of "patriotism," but i think was a smokescreen.
Be prepared for anything. He sips from a deep well of knowledge. I
can tell you this - he is a fine writer, a thoughtful artist, a man of
taste, a dandy, and a bit of a poof. He is one of the founding
fathers of the Apostasy Recording Label, and has been involved in such
acts as Son of Earth, the Believers, & Idea Fire Company. Lately, he
has taken to crooning some of the classics.

This will be a fun night.

Montague Phantom Brain Exchange is a place where bodied & disembodied brains
& nonbrains can safely gather to deconstruct solutions & create problems
while soaking in an envigorating bath of provocative entertainments. Last
wednesday of every month, 9pm to midnight, at the Rendezvous (bar with
food!) 78 3rd St Turners Falls, MA. A typical evening will include 2 - 3
performing acts, a 15 minute lecture and a DJ.
