    MoleBalls(where the moles learn to survive through waves of hellish laser beams of doom (made of ping-pong balls), veiled behind some alter egos (different character cut outs with a face hole).  mean while, the exterminators works out their team effort to overcome disorientation and distractions of all natural and supernatural elements, and successfully score and eliminate the pests by unleashing velcroed thunder balls aimed at their head.  head shots only.

    Scott and girlsScott Pennington lives in a world of part time jobs, full time jobs, financial responsibilities, the nonstop ticking of the clock and a paradox looming at every corner. He is currently in the midst of a minor crisis. The paradigm through which he interprets external reality is wildly swinging back and forth between a nicely organized and compartmentalized outlook on the world to a puzzling and curious view in which all borders and segregations between seemingly unrelated items has been removed. Simultaneously he is reflecting on the purpose and meaning of ‘work’ in general. Are the things we do, be it at your day job or in your studio, understandable to the masses? Do they need to be? Are these tasks we perform necessary to the greater population of our city and if so do people recognize and appreciate this? Are these tasks meaningless to anyone other than ourselves and possibly a few others? We must keep doing things in order to get to the next thing but are we doing the right thing? This is the dilemma at hand.

    AlmahAlmah LaVon Rice is a mostly horizontal poet (that is, a scribe of lyric essays) and enjoys all manner of hybrid tigers. She likes to visit the moonlit clearing where performance, ritual, and incantation make love.  Recent obsessions include radical altruism; the erotics of language; EXTREMITY!; saudade; adventures in interiority; Pink Panther; dreams, irreducible dreams; intimacy; the gothic potentials of nonfiction; and, per Gertrude Stein, saying something in her own handwriting.

    lichens4Lichens is Robert Lowe’s personal vehicle, created for performance and recording solo and with collaborators. Lichens has performed in Chicago, beginning at the Arthur magazine sponsored Million Tongues Festival in summer 2004 and New York solo and in duos. Lichens live is a transfixing experience, looping wordless vocals into curtains of drone. Lowe adds acoustic and electric guitars, percussion and other effects to create alternately thick and delicate works. Lowe has recorded and released a Lichens CD-R on his own, each hand assembled and released in a limited edition. Lichens contributed a track to the One Bright Sunny Day compilation CD, the debut releases from the Chicago-based IC Recordings label. Further touring is planned. In addition to the release of The Psychic Nature of Being (which is being released on vinyl by the estimable folk/psych/heavy imprint Holy Mountain) Chocolate Industries is releasing a limited edition 7 inch single by Lichens packaged inside a book of art Lowe curated with contributions by Jon Beasley, Justin Schaeffer, Devendra Banhart and others.
