MILKING THE CLOUDS
Milking the Clouds is an avant-garde sci-fiction/science truth play about the "High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program" which I co-wrote with Alina Brennaman. It ran Sunday September 18, Thursday September 22, and Friday September 23 2011 at the Paper Moose at 945 Broadway in Northeast Minneapolis at 8pm each night. Musical guests Night Crusade and RVIVR were featured Sunday night. DJ Diarrhea (Jackey Beckey) psyched it up Friday.
"The show reveals a secret government project to control the weather, an evil band of mythical Harpies, paranoid survivalists, a reversal of the poles, an original score, and James Jordan as a hippie just trying to relax. Part paranoid-transcendental comedy, part psychedelic vaudeville, part public service announcement, this show has something for the whole family." - Savannah Reich
