Anthony Ausgang reads from The Browser
Famed Low Brow artist Anthony Ausgang once again steps away from his easel to put a literary twist on Pop Surrealism with his new novella, The Browser. Much of The Browser's plot and prose is influenced by spam emails that Ausgang himself received; emails not only offering low priced meds or free money but more disturbingly, assassins for hire and blackmail. Ausgang will be reading passages from The Browser in Stories' back patio as well as signing copies purchased on the spot. Musician Mitchell Brown will alternate musical performances with Ausgang's readings, and the two will finale with a duo. Los Angeles native Mitchell Brown (aka Nanny Cantaloupe or Professor Cantaloupe) is a musician, DJ, owner of Melon Expander Records, and assistant to developmentally disabled children. He improvises and composes using analog electronics, magnetic tape manipulation, electro-acoustics, and percussion. Current and past involvements include collaborations with various LAFMS ensembles, Ariel Pink, the Sun Araw Trio, John Wiese, Jack Name, DJ Lance Rock, Matthewdavid and M. Geddes Gengras.
