THE NIGHT SPECIAL EVENT August 3, one night only A one-night multimedia performance by The Night.

Dang, video artist John Hensel, Travis Johns, who plays bass and electronics, and others. To date, their work has been featured in such places as the 2003 Placard Experimental Music Festival, The Spaceworks Gallery (NYC), and the Allen Memorial Art Museum. They will preview their East Coast August tour with a performance here in Minneapolis at the Susan Hensel Gallery on August 3, 8 pm-10 pm. Free.
