A while back, I accused Mr. Ben Frost, sound art extraordinaire behind this year’s A U R O R A, of purposefully shunning major American cities on his upcoming fall tour. Check this out: I fucked up, and Ben Frost loves America! Yeehaw!
Frost has added dates in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Lexington, St. Paul, Toronto, and Chicago. His performance in Brooklyn kicks off the Tinnitus Music Series, a program orchestrated by Pitchfork’s “Show No Mercy” column and Blackened Music that focuses on “composers of extreme sound.” Like, music for the X-Games, I think.
Can I still be a little sore about you ignoring the Pacific Northwest, Ben? Am I being too desperate?? Love me!!
** Just noticed that there is a caveat of “further tour dates” promised. Fingers crossed. Wash out your ears with “Nolan” from A U R O R A:
