Show & Tell Productions presents Three Friends Mondays:
Marko Whens, Tony Christy, Leo Daedalus, and David Abel
(followed by open mic)
Monday, May 4
Three Friends Coffee House
201 SE 12th Ave.
In September of 2008, Marko Whens and Tony Christy organized the first
Demagnetic Mutant Cabaret, "an evening of humor-based, conceptual,
nondramatic events informed by traditions such as Dada, Fluxus, and
Leo Daedalus did John Cage stand-up and Oulipo rap; Tony went on a khaki
parade; Marko found the other side of the frame; and David Abel made tea
At the Three Friends Coffee house open mic on Monday, May 4, they will
return as the Three Scrapettes, with a variety of non-acts, sound poems,
peripheral pieces, audience impersonations, and wrong solutions.
Marko Whens is soon to be published by an oppressed press. He falsely
proclaims to be the first poet to misspell every language.
As a child, Tony Christy grew gills and drowned. His father was a scrap
surgeon his mother a mitt mender. Upon graduation from the institute of
technical friction he took a position with the broke bureau.
Leo Daedalus has experienced spatial-sequence, or number form,
synesthesia since his leftmost days. Fittingly, he imagines that the
ideal expression of any particular art form would have to be realized in
a different form.
David Abel studied with Massenet and Fauré at the Paris Conservatoire
(1890-97), then lived uneventfully as a teacher and theorist, producing
an enormous body of music expressing his communist sympathies. Very
little of his work, however, escaped neglect.
