Fresh from hearing back from Insane Clown Posse themselves, who said “Good job” after seeing the show on DVD, and after a packed show at CalArts back in February, we are again packing up our Faygo and our copy of Moby Dick and heading to KITTERY MAINE for a performance at BUOY ART GALLERY! Come see it ya’ll!!!
August 10, 2012, 8pm, Buoy Art Gallery, 2 Government St, Suite B, Kittery, Maine 03904, $15.
Here it is, put together by the endlessly brilliant Mr. Carmine Covelli!!
Wicked Clown Love is the sixth full length show in my pop star/pop music based performance series. As I’ve been working on this show I’ve been thinking about the elements I’ve worked with as I’ve made this series of pieces. I’ve decided I’m gonna put up a variety of lil essays about these thoughts for you as they relate to my work in general and my upcoming Insane Clown Posse based show (Feb 2-4, 2012 at the Kitchen! Be there!!) in specific so that you, the American public, can read all about it, if you so desire… Here is Part 5, entitled:
THE LEGACY OF IT’S LIKE WE’RE INFILTRATORS
I started performing while living briefly in Austin, Texas. Back in 2000, when I made a new show every week and performed them in hotel rooms, in a public park gazebo, on the sidewalk, and in various art galleries and coffee shop poetry open mics, I did a show called It’s Like We’re Infiltrators. The show was kind of a glorious disaster. There were 6 of us and only two people in the audience: one a guy who had seen my posters around Austin (a xerox of my drivers license and the show info) and who convinced his begrudging roommate to come see what kind of person puts up posters like that. The roommate turned out to be a reporter for the Austin Chronicle who wrote a lengthy profile of me (the only one ever, so far) and who subsequently I dated and married and currently live with.
But back to the disaster. (more…)
We’re back from the Gathering and wow, that was a big deal and man am I glad we went.
I’m writing something about it which might run somewhere, so for now I’ll just leave you with the above image and with my very few tweets (no reception at the Gathering itself) from Cave-In-Rock Illinois:
I have done my ritual ablutions, my vigilance ceremonies and packed some cameras and some calamine lotion
Today, Farris Craddock and I are heading to the Gathering of the Juggalos.
I have a phone and I will be texting 40404 with updates, so follow them on my Twitter account.
The lyrics to one song go, “Serial Killers, we don’t die!” so I got these glasses:
