hop frog kollectiv presents dung mummy saturday may 10th

MUTE SOCIALITE
ANNA HOMLER
THE SWORDS OF FATIMA
ASTRONOVAZZ
BLIPVERT (sf)

and excellent night of experimental music!

don’t miss BLIPVERT! you will regret it!

also our touring jems:

Drummer/percussionist Moe! Staiano (Moe!kestra!, ex-Sleepytime Gorilla
Museum) had always wanted to have a band of his own. Finding suitable
candidates in the young talents of guitarist Ava Mendoza (Caroliner,
Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista), and bassist Alee Karim (Atomic Bomb
Audition), together they began in 2006 to create bizarre, instrumental
fleshings-out of Moe!’s compositional frameworks as Mute Socialite. In
January of 2007, 2nd drummer Shayna Dunkleman joined the ranks and
augmented the volume and overall goodness. In March of 2008, Liz
Allbee started playing with the Mutes in a part-time position of the
band until further notice.

Mute Socialite embraces its players’ diverse backgrounds– Moe!’s
driving post-punk drumming and percussion guitar, Ava’s free jazz
sensibility and mangled country and black metal riffage, Alee’s
sub-bass, grinding harmonic interplay, and Shayna’s prismatic sense of
percussive dynamics. Jolting, hocketing rhythms, atonal surf riffs,
and blackened salsa grooves combine to create a singular brutal,
polyrhythmic spasmathon. A primordial beastie unleashed on the world
in either fury or love!

Since early 2007, they have shared bills with Uz Jsme Doma, Carla
Bozulich’s Evangelista, Old Time Relijun, XBXRX, Death Sentence:
Panda!, Capillary Action, Time of Orchids, Cellular Chaos (Weasel
Walter), Cryptacize (members of Deerhoof), Moggs and Ettrick.

Mute Socialite have finished recording our first full-length album,
titled ‘More Popular Than Presidents and Generals,’ and will be
released on Moe!’s Dephine Knormal Musik imprint.

“art is time”

zero-point’s 13 moon series full art experience:
co-curated by mark ferem, dana bean & christie scott

a one year project to inspire and celebrate
the creative nature of the human spirit
through themed rituals consisting of music, visual and oral tradition,
interactive art and collaborative mash-ups
to create community
and build on a cultural narrative of peace and integration
with our various environments.

we will create full art experiences:
utilizing the arts platform from musical ensembles to poets,
visual totems to interactive organic audience participation.

we will ferment and propagate compassion / awareness
as we return to the source of creativity,
the conscious convergence of zero-point ‘energy’.

zero-point energy embodies the idea that all is one.

we will build on the 13 moon natural cycle of time,
zero-point will host 13 shows,
one every month in a sense ceremonial with nature,
because we must
harness the collective ether,
inspire positive change,
take back the lexicon and framing of language through collaborations,
create our own myths as storytellers,
learn anew to daily make a more livable space
where our spirits gather to restore the nature of our consciousness.

zero-point invites you to participate in your own evolution and transformation.
