A collaborative performance featuring Mark Mallman with Savage Aural Hotbed. Join two legends in the Minneapolis music community as they share over 20+ years of material together onstage. Both artists are known nationwide in their own right for combining elements of performance art with music.
Mark Mallman's expansive catalog of infinitely catchy and masterfully orchestrated songs has rocked the airwaves of hundreds of radio and media outlets worldwide for nearly two decades. He's also been characterized as something of a madman by numerous sources. Possibly for using a robot to rock a music venue from several miles away. Possibly for staging four of his “Marathon” events over the years, including a non-stop, non-sleep 78-hour song with 576-pages of lyrics, as well as the world's first transcontinental musical webcast. His latest Album was declared a near masterpiece by City Pages Magazine.
Savage Aural Hotbed is a "found object" band that performs instrumental percussive and ambient music. They are heavily influenced by Japanese taiko drumming, but also feature usage of home-made instruments, metal and plastic barrels, saw-blades, power-tools, and other hardware, both in the albums and in the live shows.
