An evening of music beginning with a commemoration of Stockhausen's 83rd birth anniversary (8/22/2011) pursued by the twisted anthropology of the Residents through to the rock minimalism (or is it minimalist rock?) and guitar armies of Glenn Branca and Rhys Chatham, finally concluding with the expression of nothingness in the most raw works of sometime-songman Lou Reed.
