As part of their exhibition on artist/designer/filmmaker Susan Cianciolo, tonight Yale Union hosts Japanese music ensemble Maher Shalal Hash Baz playing among "memory kits, altered sleeping bags, and unanimated soft people" designed by the artist. Led by early punk pioneer and naivist composer Tori Kudo, MSHB is more of a theater troupe or happening than a traditional band—an amorphous group that disregards the line that divides performer from audience. Sprouting out of a chance encounter at a Les Rallizes Dénudés concert between Kudo, future wife Reiki, and euphonium player Hiro Nakazaki, it has encompassed long-standing collaborators and surprised passersby.
