November 25th-27th- Wounded Bird garments will be for sale at Rock N Roll Craft Show 8. SPORE will be around for some of the weekend (parked nearby).

Fall Mini Touring Updates

After a glittery long-haul of a night with St Louis artist and fellow Pig Slopper Chloe Bethany we headed out to Chicago with her new installation for SPORE, The Measurements of My Mmmmm. Spent a good portion of the weekend at Hand in Glove, an national independent curator conference. On Saturday Ghosts I Have Been played at Yellow Book  for a female experimental night with Les Fluer De Maul and Continental Hallucinations

Yellow Book is exactly what a used bookstore should be, comfy couches, quirky but sweet owners, kindly aged good books, plants, art filled walls, resident artist Sarah Leitten and a space for eclectic performances. I'm just a little, totally in love with this place.

Halloween weekend SPORE was at the Minnehaha Free Space, an info shop and zine library in Minneapolis. Ghosts I Have Been played a show with AC and Sincerely Ethics. AC invoked Michael Jackson through spoken word, tape sampling and loops. Then Sincerely Ethic's Allen Killian-Moore epically recited the Long Black Veil alongside the guitar experimentations of Ali Jaafar.
