As you may or may not recall, back in 1991, Mark Hoslerand his conceptual postpunk rock group Negativelandgot into some major hot water as a result of their EP’U2,’ which contained a slapstick cover of the Irish rockgroup’s hit "I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For."Far from amused, U2’s label and publishers suedNegativeland, and ’U2’ was eventually recalled. Thesedays, Hosler remains a sharp critic of copyright laws,but he’s also a crusader against what he sees as thepernicious effects of mass-media advertising onconsumers, which is what he’ll mainly focus on tonight.The evening begins with a screeing of Paul Bolheim’srecent documentary film ’The Ad and The Ego,’ whichexamines many of the same issues Hosler is concerned with.
