"Round Trip to Hell in a Flying Saucer" - Conceptualized and performed by Lisa D'Amour
It's storytime. Read straight from the self-published book by Cecil Michael. A simple tale of men, aliens, the magnetic third eye, the planet called Hell, the kinds of jobs available to men on the planet called Hell and the round trip of a lifetime.
"Salon" - Conceptualized by Billy Cope
A dope deal that may or may not happen -- good fun ensues, as a cast of local artists assembles, waiting patiently for the kind bud, the schwag, the yerba, to arrive: learn the terrifying truth about the Austin art scene in this homegrown piece. The only performer that will be named at this time shall be known as 'the ancient mariner.'
