Magas, Goudron and Perspects tonight at MOCAD

MOCAD has been really getting their events programming together, made evident by this powerhouse of a bill on Thanksgiving Eve:

James Marlon Magas has become a Midwestern superstar for bringing primal, progressive sounds to the world through his previous bands Couch (featuring future Wolf Eyes member Aaron Dilloway), Lake of Dracula, his Many Moods of Marlon Magas, and as co-founder of seminal 90's noise rock label Bulb records. Now, simply known as MAGAS, he builds from his history with harsh no-wave punk, creating his own his own darkly eccentric, electronic music, tinged with shades of dirty Detroit Ghetto-tech, early electro and booty music. Having, in the past, worked producing and releasing records with Adult. on their Ersatz Audio imprint, Magas has now produced and released his own record "May I Meet My Accuser" which "showcases a rougher, more rough hewn sound" focusing on the "thunderous roar of an old ARP [to create] a new style of electronic motor-punk."

Also performing will be Detroit artist-musician, circuit bender, dance floor shaker, and former Ersatz Audio recording artist, Ron Zakrin, as Goudron. Along with Artist, msucian and former member of Ersatz Audio's Le Car duo, Ian Clark will open the evening, performing a live set utilizing electronics, drums and voice, as Perspects.
