Savage Aural Hotbed
To Perform Dec. 8
MAILED: Nov. 20, 2000

          EAU CLAIRE — Minneapolis industrial band Savage Aural Hotbed will perform Friday, Dec. 8, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Doors will open at 8 p.m. for the show in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center. Screemo and SF Inc. will appear as special guests.
          Savage Aural Hotbed’s precise, percussive music is inspired by Japanese taiko drumming and the literally cutting-edge innovation of industrial sound. The band creates its compelling sound using conventional and found-object percussion instruments, bass guitar, electronically modified horns and vocals, and power tools. With as many as four people drumming, they provide visual and aural excitement with their high-energy rhythms, flailing arms and flying sparks.
          National Public Radio’s Scott Simon described Savage Aural Hotbed’s music as “the sound of steel and rust, oil drums and hubcaps, screeches, sparks, grinders and gears finding new fury. ... It’s also fun. It makes you smile to see a man make music with an electric saw.”
          Tickets are $7 ($5 for UW-Eau Claire students) at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, and will be sold at the door. The show is open to all ages. Proof of age is required in the bar area.
          The concert is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
