There's nothing modest about Columbus band Mors Ontologica's statement of purposes posted on the band's Very Small Scene Records Web site.
The band refers to itself as "a progressive post-pop/art rock outfit intent on stripping away the walls of modernity and participating in 'the forum of music.' "
Mors Ontologica's first full-length album, "Don't Cry," was released in February. The band performs at 9 tonight in the Happy Badger, 1855 South Reynolds Rd. Tickets are $7 at the door. Information: 419-389-0021.
