Tomorrow I will be wading through the muck and mire in rural Pennsylvania for the promotional photoshoot for Pig Iron Theatre Company's latest project, a collaboration with Philadelphia-based band Dr. Dog called SWAMP IS ON.
From Pig Iron:
"With generous support from the Knight Foundation, PNC Arts Alive, and the Independence Foundation, Pig Iron is happy to welcome The Dr. Dog Pop Detachment and The Pig Iron Psychedelic Signals Auxilliaryto our facilities here in Philadelphia for a concert and experiment series. The Auxilliary will be tuning in to rare frequencies that operate beneath and around approved government bandwidths, using proprietary equipment that they’ve been keeping under wraps for years. We’re happy to have members of Dr. Dog, disaffected scientists from the former Orbital Tracks program, and Pig Iron artists working together to decode messages from the Swamp, and despite what you’ve heard we’re going ahead with our concert SWAMP IS ON. Come bring your old cassette tapes – the ones you can say goodbye to, permanently – to SWAMP IS ON, part of the 2015 Fringe, at 4 special transmission-concerts, September 9-12, at Union Transfer. Doors open at 7:15, the transmissions with visuals start promptly at 8pm, and our friends Dr. Dog will play a full concert following the Detachment/Auxilliary research protocols"
