Montague Phantom Brain Exchange #15
Casio electrician Dan Friel returns to wmass this month to share his fuzzy beats and bloppy mud melodies. Known more recently for his work with the anthemic prog brigade Parts & Labor, Friel carries with him a hefty history of sick jams. As a wee chap cradled in the verdant fields of south amherst, he sharpened his chops in brutal noise/rock acts like the Squidlaunch collective & Soren. His instrumental solo sets are intimate & chugging with a nice pressure of intimacy & chugginess that might get yout slightly lost in the moment & then come back only to realize what you just repeated. http://danfriel.com/

With lips of fury, local trumpeter Peter Bonos will be dropping a sack of new compositions & improvisations for solo horn, metal implements, & aquarium air compressor. With an ever expanding vocabulary he fearlessly harnesses overblowing freejazz, improv scrape, & folksy romanticism without looking or sounding like a dork. This could be the debut of his Pi-based numerological score, so watch out! http://www.myspace.com/peterbonos

Angela Zammarelli will be showing some exquisite short video work that pulls one under a crocheted blanket and deep into a sweaty abyss of twisted penetrating mycelium. Zammarelli works in many media notably fiber, performance, & installation. She's done cool residencies in faraway places & has shown her awesome art all over. www.flickr.com/photos/azammarelli/

Local celebrity, fishkeeper & aquarium expert Dan Linton will be presenting his informative talk "Freshwater Shrimp Cocktail: The history, and basics of keeping freshwater shrimp in the home aquarium." Keep clean with a crustacean.

DJ Cloca will take on the decks this month and put the needle on inappropriate records where possible.
