Show 19: Yipsilanti, MI

Turnout: 11
Door: 21, Merch: 10
Personal Injury Report: Unscathed!

Show Description: We played at Dreamland Theater, a place stocked with puppets and marionettes. Here's one of them, the hairy frog. And another, a robotized baby.
The show felt a bit routine, which was unfortunate. And Kate's pre-show introduction thing sucked by her own admission. But besides that, overall, it went well.

Dreamland seems to house some pretty cool events. The music before us was great, the people from the collective were very, very nice and we stayed at a house with a squash the size of an elephant tumor on the counter and chickens roaming the front yard.

There were two downer things revolving around this show. 1) We were held up in dead stopped traffic for an hour due to a bad, bad, bad motorcycle accident.

2) We mistakenly left the gun inside the venue and then went to the squash-chicken house to sleep without a thought about it. Kate had taken it off at the end, which usually doesn't happen. Wonderfully, by a stroke of amazing luck, we were caught just in the nick of time to go and pick it up at the venue. Thank you, thank you.

This is not the most professional behavior we've exhibited, but at least the motorcycle accident wasn't our fault.

Did you see this show? If you did, write a review, comment on it, or ask us some questions. We'd like to hear it because we believe in artistic transparency.
