Anathallo Presents: A live 'Encyclopedia Asthmatica' Collaboration

ATTN Chicago and surrounding areas: Anathallo is presenting a very special performance on Thursday April 24th.

Perhaps you are familiar with Asthmatic Kitty's new DVD-compilation, 'Encyclopedia Asthmatic,' and if so, you may be aware of a group called think/dance or its movement-based performances in response to the music of John Ringhofer (aka Half-Handed Cloud). Why were those women wearing shoes made of bread? You wonder, don't you? Why the brightly pill-colored sweat-suits? Why the log-pyramid, intense juice boxes slurping, and playful interpretation and re-possession of "Blame it on the Rain"-era dance movement? The matter clearly deserves further investigation. To further this end - Think/Dance and Half-Handed Cloud will perform together for the first time ever. To make the consistency of this already-syrupy sweetness even thicker, joining the two will be Olympia Washington's general merrymakers, Lake! Here's the info, hope you can make it!

Thursday April 24th @ 8 PM - 7 dollars
Lincoln Square Theatre, Berry UMC - 4754 N. Leavitt St., Chicago IL 60640
For more information - 989.330.3215
