Here's a writeup about Friday's Magma Fest show at The Chapel Performance Space in Wallingford from the Stranger!
"(Friday's) Magma Fest lineup includes some of the Northwest's most rigorous experimental-music explorers. Perhaps best known of the lot is Stuart Dempster, trombonist for the Deep Listening Band, which features the great minimalist composer/accordionist Pauline Oliveros. Often recording in a massive Port Townsend cistern, Dempster is mainly interested in stately, ethereal drones that morph infinitesimally, suggesting a soundtrack for a utopian eternity of calm and peace. Cellist/bassist Paul Rucker's improvisations and compositions typically are augmented by, in his words, "infrared beams, lasers, touch pads... video, photography, animation, and large-format printing." Sounds and images pun with and complement one another with a cleverly playful intellectual heft. DAVE SEGAL"

Hollow Earth Radio’s Magma FestivalCurated By Bad For Jazz + Table & Chairs March 24, 2012 @ 7pm Chapel Performance Space Sliding scale donations
Hollow Earth Radio’s annual March-long Magma Festival has selected the improvisational happening organization Bad For Jazz and local out-jazz record label Table & Chairs to curate their slant on Seattle’s underground jazz offerings. Tonight’s event will feature four diverse performances by just a fraction of Seattle’s young and seasoned jazz interpreters. Aside from this unique grouping of performers, all artists are expected to improvise their sets, making this a one-of-a-kind happening not to brush off the radar of must-attend shows. Performance lineup as follows:
KING TEARS BAT TRIP – This rhythm-dynamic big beat septet consists of 5 drummers, 1 guitarist, and 1 saxophonist. Their tribal anxiety is iced-over w/ melodic near noise-toned guitar and bemoaning sax that shifts hinted themes into far off/far out improvisational breakdowns. This date will also see the digital release of their new album on band member Luke Bergman’s Table & Chairs Records. www.tableandchairsmusic.com
FIGEATER - Disjointed, amok-running, yet weaving explorations of innate genre fusing by multi- instrumentalist/vocalist Beth Fleenor. This quartet’s songlike psychedelic freakout episodes unsnap for punctuated improvisations that re-button into sonic spelunking. www.thefrankagency.org
WA– Sometimes a duo helmed by the breakneck guitarist/saxophonist Simon Henneman and percussionist Greg Klepligner. Sometimes a quartet w/ note annulling guitarist CJ Stout and the tonality totality of bicycle-playing/electronic artist Sean Lane. Always a lock on eureka performances, no matter the lineup. These veteran jazz chancers streamline sharp updates to 1960’s Impulse New-Thing into the duct of ever-inventiveness. http://www.tableandchairsmusic.com/artists/wa
T’TH & HARE – This ex Unfair Parents duo will be debuting what can only be expected to be flat out hyper noise jazz. The only reference can (ahem, will) mention is that the instrumentation will consist of Billy Safarik (formerly of MOUNTAINSS to boot) alternating between fleeting saxophone and guitar with drummer/trombonist Aaron Weinberg as the anchor. This evening’s wildcard indeed. (no link on purpose)

Red Velvet. Rainbow Glitter. Rad Queers.
This Friday, March 9th! Magma Festival and Golden Daggers Vaudeville present a very Special Queer Variety Show!
Dave End (San Francisco) - With an accordion, a golden throat, and expertly-applied eyeshadow, Dave End may just change your life. She is equal parts Wizened Sage and Baudy Comic. Her one-person shows are glimpses into a glitter-dust universe. In one sentence: Dave End dazzles.
Clyde Peterson (SEA) - Clyde is an artwork powerhouse. Playing shows as Your Heart Breaks, presenting rad and raunchy experimental films, and generally hauling ass on everything from silk-screening to punk-quilting. This dude does it all. For Golden Daggers, he'll be screening shorts from his new and riotous queer animation series: Fanning the Flames of Faggot Lust.
Theo Hilton (SEA) - Theo has set hearts and minds on fire as part of the musical projects Defiance, Ohio and Nana Grizol. His songs are handhewn vignettes of punk ethics and cross-country friendships. He's a lyrical painter; a poet-wordsculptor.
At the Grand Illusion Cinema!
Doors at 9 pm
Show at 9:30 pm
