Annual Photo Lottery at AS220

Photo Lottery is just 3 days away! Luckily… you can still buy a

ticket to take home one of the amazing artworks that have been donated

for 2009! Buy your tickets at the bar, through the event page at

as220.org/photolottery, drop by AS220 or send a check by way of snail

mail or as a last resort, just show up early at the event and we will

sell one to you if we still have them!

This is the fourth Photo Lottery that the AS220′s Paul Krot Darkroom

has held and each blessed one has been a sold-out event thanks to the

generosity of our patrons and the passion of our gamblers. We have

150 pieces of photo-based artwork from students, amateurs, youth,

working professionals, photo journalists, and legendary international

photographers like Jock Sturges, Henry Horenstein, Mona Kuhn and Danny

Lyon! This is a one-night-only salon style exhibition — people will

start taking their new art with them as the night winds down — so

even if you can’t swing it to support the darkroom with some dollars

right now please please please still come out and check out the

amazing array of photos on the walls. It will be a good old time.

Films from the Family Life Center: Stronger Than Their Walls

A film about probation, exoneration, and people fighting for the

second chance they deserve. RI state law allows people on probation to

be incarcerated for crimes for which they have been exonerated,

although almost every other state does it differently. This

documentary follows the story of several men who were presumed guilty

and never given a fair chance to demonstrate their innocence. The

families of these imprisoned men take the issue to the Rhode Island

Statehouse, where they tell their stories in an effort to reform the

law. 45 minutes. Produced with support from the Rhode Island Family

Life Center and the Rhode Island Council of Humanities Film by Nick

Horton, Julia Liu, Jon Mahone, and Keith Heywar

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra, Drunkdriver, Green Cobweb, and Morgan

Egg

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra work with noise, silence and

abjection. They transgress all notions of what a performance can be.

The Wire (Dec. 2005 U.K.) –”The long awaited debut release of Deflag

Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra aka Mattin (guitar, vocals and computer

feedback) and Goldie (drums, vocals, disc, chain and bird whistle]

comprises 15 tracks recorded between July 2002 and November 2003. It

includes one truly scary field recording made by Zoe Broughton at

Huntingdon Life Sciences back in 1997, where she was working

undercover for a Channel Four documentary to expose the notorious

animal research facility’s appalling cruelty to animals (see www.shac.net/HLS/exposed/broughton.html) . A concert or album of unrelenting ferocious noise, whether by

Hijokaidan, Borbetomagus, Merzbow or The Dust Breeders, may be a

highly enjoyable rush of pure adrenaline, but it’s no longer exactly a

surprise. Mattin and Goldie can burst eardrums as well as the above -

watch your speakers on the apocalyptic “Submucosa”- but they’ve learnt

their lowercase lesson well, and use disturbingly quiet passages and

slow menacing drones to equally devastating effect. Mattin is as

unpredictable as ever, lurching from the kind of delicate laptoppery

that graced his Grob release Building Excess with Klaus Filip, Dean

Roberts and Radu Malfatti, to blasts of unmitigated sonic terror that

will melt the fillings in your teeth. His guitar work and vocals are

just as extreme, especially on the splendidly titled “It’s Not Your

Fault You Are The Authentic Version Of What The Rest Of Us Can Only

Imagine”, apparently recorded live (listening to the screams of terror

and the vicious thudding of heavy chains I’m glad I wasn’t there).

Goldie’s drumming is savage and ritualistic, from the isolated

explosions of “Humiliated” to the all-out blitzkrieg ofhis solo

offering “Lacguage = Noumenal Sarcoshyce” [sic] (a whole page of

similarly impenetrable logorrhea adorns the album cover), but it’s

refreshingly far removed from both free jazz and Improv percussion

cliche, even though I suspect his collection includes a fair number of

Eddie Prevost albums. Luxury is an album of awesome intensity, one

that deserves to be blasted mercilessly from a 40,000W PA outside

Huntingdon Life Sciences every day until the torture ceases.” –Dan

Warburton.

Some people think these critters make great pets, they don’t take up

hardly any space, they will eat almost anything, and are easily

tamed… I personally don’t agree with these people. However, they do

make a great name for a loud freaking band that is playing at Foo Fest

this August 15th. If you think you know who I’m talking about—be

the first to send me the band name and I will make sure you get to

see them, and the Arkestra, and Lightning Bolt, and Mary Bee, and MORE

great performances for free.
