BEN AQUA is a Brooklyn born, Austin based studio and visual artist. His output is prolific, unique, colorful, brilliant. His photography and graphic work has appeared in Nylon, Spin, and Rolling Stone, and his sounds have been featured by Mad Decent, Interview Magazine, DFA Records, and that awful buzzfeed website, to list a few. Many of us who have helped sculpt the deeper independent and show movement of South Texas may remember some very rowdy, plaster bashing house shows Ben performed at under the name ASSACRE, a one-man power-thrash anomaly, many moons ago. Introductions aside, it is with great pleasure to announce a night with Ben Aqua and special guests: The Collective Unconscious and SUB DIVISION, taking place Saturday, February 1st at the upstairs lounge of Cine El Rey. Skip to the bottom for relevant event details.
