jangleheartcircus:

Sad to announce that Dummy has had to cancel their Jangleheart Circus set at 9pm on Friday due to scheduling conflicts. It sucks! They’re great! We will miss them very much. HOWEVER, we are very very fortunate to have an amazing group stepping in - “Baltz, Hite, & Sciretta: Num Num’s” - Tim Baltz, Barry Hite, Kevin Sciretta and guests TBD. We really dodged a bullet! Be sure to check this show out!

Tonight LATE! The Countdown!

Tuesday August 5th - 10:30pm, Free (Donations Accepted) BYOB

In 2011, three teams did a run at the Gallery and called it The Countdown. These teams all became dear friends and supporters of the gallery. The run wasn’t a financial success, but it was the genisis for so much more! Now, as we “countdown” to the last days of the Gallery, they’re getting the gang back together!

Speaking of new beginnings, the 19th (the night of the show!!!) is the wonderful Drew Anderson’s last night in Chicago. He’s moving to NYC. Tears. Joy. Tears. Joy. SO come watch him perform and make you laugh.

Performing all in one place for one special night:

  • DMNK
  • ThoraBirch
  • The Era
