SHOW REPORT 82: PS1, Iowa City.

MONEYS: $16 door, $9 merch
INJURIES: Kate found a dying cockroach in the hallway, thought it was a junebug, felt compassion for it, attempted to recessitate it with small droplets of water, which it heartily drank, stood up and became more lively until her efforts were foiled by the janitor who swept the dying thing up and threw it away while she was elsewhere.

STORIES: A slightly disheartening start of the tour. Some nice and enthusiastic people came out, but we didn't make close to enough to get us to the next city. A late start meant there were a few intoxicated attendees, who probably annoyed the more intent and appreciateive audience members and generally soured the experience a bit.

Peter played his "theatre set" which is big and harsh and loud, featuring a long sample from a Beckett novel. It's been a long time since I've seen Peter play, and he continues to kick ass.

Here's a haiku about the drive to Iowa City:

exits more exits
is that a tornado there
just a pointed cloud

  1. It was a pleasure meeting you both last night. Hopefully after this rough start it will only be uphill going forward.

    as a side note- At work today it was Wear Your Favorite College Sports Team Jersey Day... not having one, I donned my new Insurgent t-shirt

    thank you again for sharing. You have crafted a power and brilliant piece. I hope I have the opportunity to see your work again.
