This week, you have two chances for an aurally-induced lobotomy from Japan's godfather of noise, Merzbow, a/k/a Masami Akita. Tonight finds the screech-y, fuzzy, amplified-static eardrum torturer indulging in two sets of high-brow cacophony with opener (and Issue's Artist-in-Residence) MV Carbon. Though Akita's laptop shall surely be present, his more recent work revisits analog and full drum kit sounds. Also catch Merzbow and Xiu Xiu on 9/26 at (le) poisson rouge.
