CAKE FRAME 2 was such a wild success that the South Side Weekly wrote this awesome flattering article about it! Thank you Sarah Claypool! We raised over $4,000 towards CAKE 2014, coming up on May 31st and June 1st at the Center on Halsted.
Last fall, Brain Frame quadruple alumni Sara Drake interviewed Brain Frame overlord Lyra Hill for a the contemporary art blog Bad At Sports. Over tea and bagels, Lyra and Sara drew themselves exchanging ideas, listening to music, and letting down their hair.
The Chicago Reader just released their annual People Issue. Brain Frame’s founder, organizer, and emcee Lyra Hill is one of 19 profiled Chicagoans! Click here to read the interview and see some nice photos. Especially delightful is the video (bottom of page) in which she discusses her collaborative performance with Night Terror at BRAIN FRAME 13, our second anniversary show.
DETROIT BRAIN FRAME went so well that the Knight Foundation blogged about it! In a magnificent show of local talent and force, our Detroit performers ran the gamut of funny, friendly, eerie, crass, confusing, and disturbed (an ideal cocktail) and the city came out in full support, packing MOCAD’s warehouse-sized cafe. “Overall, it was a fascinating and highly engaging show, showing the wide range of expressive modes stemming from and expanding on the comix medium.” Go read about it, and look forward to photos and videos soon.
The Chicago Tribune published a glowing article yesterday on “the mildly loopy, wildly eclectic and passionately adored comics-and-performance whatchamacallit/updated ’60s freak out/cartooning-community rallying point:” BRAIN FRAME! What and honor! Click here to read more dishy details and ebullient reviews from a host of quotable artists. And come to the show tonight, it’s gonna be a good one.
