Astral Spirits is incredibly honored to present a very rare and intimate solo set from the one and only ROB MAZUREK! This is not to be missed! His most recent solo release "Mother Ode" is a masterpiece! Some reviews of this latest solo disc:
The show will start early at 8pm with opening sets from Marriage and SSBT (Chris Cogburn, Parham Daghighi & Steve Jansen) followed by Mazurek.
This is BYOB! $5-10 sliding scale admission. Please give what you can, the artists will appreciate it.
Some more info on Rob Mazurek:
Chicago-based composer, improviser and multi-media artist Rob Mazurek has drawn inspiration from a multitude of audio and visual styles and sources over the past three decades. Augmenting his cornet playing with computer programming, electronics and an assortment of keyboards, Mazurek's broad electro-acoustic palette defies simple categorization. Having relocated back to Chicago after an extended stay in São Paulo, Brazil, Mazurek currently leads and composes for a wide variety of ongoing ensembles, including the Chicago Underground Duo, Exploding Star Orchestra and São Paulo Underground – and, most recently, Pharoah & The Underground (featuring Pharoah Sanders). Additionally, Mazurek has exhibited his paintings and video works internationally.
His most recent release is Spiral Mercury, the debut of Pharoah & The Underground (Clean Feed). Mazurek’s newest ensemble, Black Cube SP, will be touring as a quartet (São Paulo Underground + Thomas Rohrer) in the US in the Spring of 2015 and Europe in the Fall of 2015, to promote his next album, Return the Tides, to be released on Cuneiform in October. Alternate Moon Cycles, a trio session with Matthew Lux on electric bass and Mikel Patrick Avery on pump organ, will be released on International Anthem by the end of the year, while Some Jellyfish Live Forever, a duo with guitarist Jeff Parker for Rogue Art and Galactic Parables, a new Exploding Star Orchestra record for Cuneiform, are slated to be released early next year.
New Austin 4-pc Harsh Noise / Heavy Improv group featuring Johnathan Cash (Breakdancing Ronald Reagan) on vocals and electronics, Dustin Pilkington (of Total Abuse, Burnt Skull, etc) on guitar, Johnny Hilbun (of Coma In Algiers) on synth, and Parham Daghighi (of Friendship Cemetery, SSBT, etc) on drums.
the duo of Gerard Cosloy (guitar) and JJ Ruiz (drums) have slowly progressed from provoking genuine hostility to shrugs of indifference. 18 years into this ill-advised journey, they hope to have generated something close to polite nods by the year 2020. Featuring former members of (the) Diner's Club.
A truly unique artist. I lived with the guy and I still can't tell you what he's gonna do. His work runs the gauntlet from Daniel Johnson/Jandek-inspired Outsider songs, VHS-mangling visual art, stand-up poetry slam nightmares, cassette tape abuse-scapes, aggressive and physical Harsh Noise/Power Electronics, and sample-heavy Negativland-esque Soundcollage. A true Experimental artist in every sense of the word.
Set 1. SSBT (Chris Cogburn / Steve Jansen / Parham Daghighi)
Set 2. Arcangelo Constantini (Mexico City)
Set 3. Rick Reed
No Idea presents a night of music featuring Mexico City sound artist Arcangelo Constantini in his first ever performance in Austin. Arcangelo will perform solo on his self-crafted instruments ("8 X 8 Ω / 1 bit" and "Magnetoplankton"). Also performing are electronic musician Rick Reed and the noise group SSBT (Chris Cogburn, Steve Jansen and Parham Daghighi).

Many projects to be executed in the next two months, and no motivation and excitement behind them. All you’ve cared about since returning is being farther away from the focal point of a majority of your emotional energy, a place that you can’t return to on a permanent basis due to regression purposes.
Emaciated, barely resembling a human, he takes you to the airport in his prized sports car. It’s a week after Father’s Day and though he has weakened, he’s still lucid, moving around, and working at least 10 hours a day at home.
You get out of the car and reach inside to shake his hand goodbye. He always had an insanely firm grip, a result of spending a life working with one’s hands.
It’s the last time you see him upright, and he still crushes your hand with his grip. You’ll never forget, and hope to continue smiling each time you think about it.
