The Infamous Link Post!

 Cangue League is benefiting from a diverse and amazing group of forward thinking artists.  Witness these intricate drawings donated by Ted Klug to the "Flowers" project.  You may have heard him do some interesting stuff  with James Rodriguez on their "Monera" cds.  Check out Elsie and Jack for some nice vibrations.

The first cat to join the Cangue League Orchestra (CLO) was Mike Saunders from the experimental / psychedelic band Moss Folk and of Chance Jones fame.

  Next is Hugo Claudin, creator of Mexicains Sans Frontieres the venue for music with new ideas whilst being percussionist for many groups, most recently- The Fainting Generals.

Wil Lucy joins us with his melodica and banjo that he claims he can play simultaneously!  He basses for Semi-Casual Bedtime. His day job is with the Skywalk Deli who without hesitation let me have their empty cans.

Rebecca Rodriguez has played mucho musica around town as a soloist and with bands such as The Tiger Passion and now with The Icicles.

 Nate Neal, who has just had his graphic novel, Sanctuary published by Fantaghaphics is providing art work to our little show the first week-end in March.

 DAST the aural abstractionists in town will perform with a Stan Brakhage film playing in "Flowers" on Saturday night only !
Thursday and Friday night The CLO will provide the live score to Maya Deren's "Meshes of the Afternoon".

Poet / Writer / Performance Artist Katherine Marty will perform two of her spoken word pieces with the incomparable CLO providing some aural assistance.

Filling in on Friday night in two of the theater pieces is Ben Scott-Brandt, a musician of note currently with Ribbons of Song.

 You, the audience will color and draw and write on some 16mm clear leader in the lobby of Dog Story Theater that will be used in a performance piece entitle "Communion".

We'll tell you about other talented Grand Rapidians that are joining the League in the future.

We're just starting, but we want to continue to bring alternative theater to the area.  See you March, 3,4,5 Downtown GR.
