Rabble-Rousing Launch for Firesign Bozos Pamphlet!

Tonight's performance piece is an homage to the subject of my hot-off-the-presses pamphlet from Insert Blanc Press' Rabble imprint, What’s Happening in The Firesign Theatre’s I Think We’re All Bozos On This Bus as Best as I Can Make Out - available here.

Insert Blanc Press imprint Rabble
co-edited/curated by Holly Myers & Mathew Timmons

Join us for the grievously belated but no less ardent, eager, and enthusiastic launch of Rabble, an imprint of Insert Blanc Press dedicated to the publication of innovative critical writing in pamphlet form. We aim to celebrate the writers whose very fine work we’ve published in the last two years, herald those who are slated soon to appear, and generally extoll our ongoing mission of bringing the excitement back into criticism. Rabble is co-edited by Holly Myers and Mathew Timmons.

The evening will include readings, performances, and other occasions of rabble rousing by Myers, Timmons, Alexandra Grant, Doug Harvey, Steve Roden, and Tyler Stallings.

Part of a selection of events curated by Amy Garofano. Blurring the line between performance and exhibition, this series of events uses the Machine Project Project Space for Projects as a container for both actions and the effects of those actions. Each artist in this series will create an event that doubles as an opening. During the event the work will be in flux. The aftermath of the event will remain in the space to operate as a monument, remnant, diary entry, time capsule, or trace. In the days following the event, visitors can experience the aftermath from the storefront window as a kind of forensic tableau.
