Special Thursday night event: Paul Metzger and Tim Kaiser. Sound by Jon Monteverde.
"Minneapolis guitarist Paul Metzger showcases a maximalist aesthetic and a tinkerer's sense of adventure in his rambling, percussive solo works. Over the course of 30 years, playing modified banjo and acoustic guitar, he's honed a style that's austere and verbose, elegant and rustic." - Cecile Cloutier, National Public Radio.

Tim Kaiser commands his creations with simple sweeps of his hands, willing sounds into existence. He has scored films, been featured on PBS as well as in magazines, and has toured extensively. How he gets by airport security with his devices is anyone's guess, but his hand-built instruments are as alluring as the sounds they make. Kaiser has been a founding contributor and champion of the Weirdo Industrial Complex for more than 30 years.
