Wednesday Night: Lewd Puppetry and Accordion Music

posted by on April 28 at 13:40 PM

What: A benefit for the Vera Project.

Who: A puppet show by the always awesome Sgt. Rigsby and His Amazing Silhouettes.


Also, music by Accordion Boy (also known as Nate Mooter of Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Strong Killings, and the Lashes).


Where: McLeod Residence.

When: Wednesday April 30 at 7 pm.

What else: Fish and chips. And whiskey.

How much: Suggested donation of $15.

Background: Last year, Sgt. Rigsby offered to donate a private puppet show for our Strangercrombie charity auction. Our own Ari Spool bought the package and, overachiever that she is, decided to double-down on the do-gooding: a puppet show bought for charity, repurposed into a fundraiser.

The result is like a miracle—everything anyone could want (Sgt. Rigsby, Accordion Boy, McLeod, Vera, whiskey) all in one place.

Anyone know how much the cover on this will be? I couldn't find anything on the websites for McLeod, Sgt. Rigsby, or The Vera Project. I wanna make it but am kinda broke.

Sorry, SCM--I meant Sgt. Rigsby might be doable.

Mr. Poe getting hammered on PBRs is inevitable...

Almos' sounds like a miracle, except for the McLeod part. Pick a better venue next time. Thanx!
