From the event description:

Born in southern Sweden, Axel Willner spent his formative years living in Stockholm and Lisbon, studying both at a formal music academy and in the moshpit, citing bands like Misfits and Dead Kennedys as inspiration to pick up the guitar and play in punk bands. Enamored with the burgeoning electronic music scene of the mid-90s, he started composing and playing drone- and warp-influenced IDM, followed by guitar-based ambient music that he released on his own imprint Garmonbozia in the early 2000s, using multiple pseudonyms like Lars Blek, Porte, Cordouan or James Larsson.

When: Sunday, Aug. 25, 8:30 p.m.

Where: The Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western Ave.
