Show Description: Will Kendall set us up at the chill Jackson Ave Coffee House. We performed in the back room where, unfortunately, the people in the front of the cafe could hear the strangeness that was going on behind closed doors. Oh well.

This is the first time that there had to be serious improvisation in the show. One of the ropes used to tie Ulysses' leg fell out of its pocket at the beginning of the show a ways away from the open space it would normally be expected to be if it fell out. There was a bit of scrambling before the other rope used to mark the space's ten foot circle was spotted sitting all balled up behind two audience members.

After the show we went back to Will, Carly and Stephanie's house where they had some of the best polenta I've ever had along with lots of other delicious food. We talked about the show a bit, there was good music, good conversation and an all around good mood. We also silkscreened some shirts and saw a picture of the "Montana Grizzly Bear Artificial Insemination Team."

If you saw this performance, write a review of it, comment or ask questions here! Do it! We'd like to hear it because we believe in artistic transparency.
