WHERE WE’LL BE AT THE SHOW
We’ll be hanging our hats at TABLE O9 (Artist Alley, listed in the program as Rachel Edidin).

Rachel’s books and minicomics! The debut issue of the R&MX-PtX-M zine, assuming we can get it together in time!)!

SO MANY THANKS to The Steep & Thorny Way to Heaven for donating the use of their space for this event. If you’re local–or a frequent visitor–and a fan of weird and wonderful art and performance, you should make a point of checking out what they do when they’re not hosting us!
