WKAP CHICAGO BRIGADE ROLL CALL
Amanda Fucking Palmer
D/O/B April 30, 1976
D/O/D September 16, 2008
3730 N. Clark
So, what is so much better than dinner and a movie or dinner and a show? Why a funeral procession in Amanda’s honor and then her show with the Danger Ensemble of course! And coming out to play and perform with the brigade.
* Doors are at 6:30 pm so the brigade should be ready to roll at 5:30*
If you can’t make that time just let me know ahead of time and then get there as close to that as possible.
Early meet up: will be at 5pm at Mcdonald’s down the way from Metro on Clark Street/corner of addison and clark across from Wrigley(that big place where they play baseball or something of the sort). We can go over things and if people need to get ready you can use the bathrooms there as well.
My contact info: Jennifer Jolly cell# 815-988-2337 for day of show. Text first so I know who you are.
I will be available at Jollygirl@aol.com
until about 12 pm on Wednesday.
I will be dressed as Al Capone so I will be easy to spot at Mcdonald’s.
As for the outline I will bring it when we meet beforehand because that way we can all collectively agree and collaborate.
Theme= 1920's Chicago gangster/roaring 20's/and some Irish...think Al Capone...flappers...funeral...mourning...long black coats and suits for the outside procession...parasols and presents for amanda's altar...candle's-flowers-flower petals-ponies-pictures-notes and platitudes...if you want to speak or read or sing/perform something in her memory you are more than welcome-you are VERY much welcome...we also have music and singing and stilt walkers and a funeral procession...so come join in and celebrate Amanda Fucking Palmer- the artist formerly known as alive in whatever way works best for you...as long as it is legal and does not piss off the venue...
Come ready to mourn and have fun with the brigade and the crowd. Improv and crowd interaction is highly desired but if you are a super shy type feel free to march in the procession and quietly participate. ALL participation is welcomed!
*also we have not just one but two DAFP’s a.k.a. dead Amanda fucking palmers-one will be outside and one inside...I will bring a workout mat and yoga mat so you won’t be right on the ground but we still need black or burgundy shrouds or sheets? Anyone want to tackle it? Pretty please with brigade cherries on top!
I look forward to meeting you all~performing and playing with you all~and then rocking out to the show with you all!!!!
P.S. If you know of anyone who wants to join in and this did not get to them feel free to pass it on...thanks. I emailed it to the 17 people i have email info for but wanted to post it here for the few i did not have info on.
P.P.S. if you go writing my number in a bathroom stall please make sure it is a gay bar and remember to add "for a jolly time please call"...hahaha
WE ARE SO BRINGING IT~THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!
