Tonight on KEXP’s excellent experimental music program Sonarchy – a brand new hour long set by the mighty inner-space explorers known as Fungal Abyss (psychonaught-ical alter egos of the band Lesbian). Tune in to 90.3FM at the stroke of midnight (or look for it on KEXP’s online archive).

From the Elliot Bay website-
“Based in Port Townsend, Feral House and Process Media are two of the most adventurous, often surprising publishers in the U.S., with a bent for revealing the otherwise obscured, undisclosed or under-documented. Adam Parfrey, himself a writer but also the publisher of both these presses, is here this evening to talk and show images from his own new book, Ritual America: Secret Brotherhoods and Their Influence on American Society: A Visual Guide (Feral House) co-authored with Craig Heimbichner. This gives context and perspective, starting with its documenting the preponderance of American males who belonged to fraternal orders as recently as five or six decades ago. Many still do, of course, but the ratio was once as high as a third. From that, to the place of things today are written and portrayed in illuminating ways.”
In case you didn’t know- Debacle Fest, Seattle’s favorite explosion of outsider-noise-drone good times happens this weekend and the lineup this year is quite amazing. Get thee to yonder Black Lodge for a weekend of mind-melty fun.
