Anarchists, hobos, flappers, & practitioners of ‘free love’ it’s time for another 2FR Festival!

by Micromanager


SOS’s Roving Séance™ relies not on newfangeled gadgetry, but on technology that works.

Block out February 1 on your calendar because Society of Smallness is once again taking part in 2FR — the Blue-Line-hugging winter alternative arts and performance festival.

Our Roving Séance™, Gateway to Hobohemia will be conjuring up 1920s Chicago and cultural hotspot The Dil Pickle. The SOS will travel with a coterie of clerks whose steadfast commitment to keeping the bureaucracy intact will summon spirits from the jazz-era.

We plan to infiltrate five different 2FR venues with our 15 minute performance. The following times are firm but a few locations are yet to be determined.

Featured artists (in no particular order): Kevin L. Burrows (aka the Mayor of Bucktown), Annie Morse, Will Clinger, Marianne Joyce, Jeff Michalski, Henry Harris, Bryant Abraham Godinez, Matthew Stone, Georgina Valverde, Tom Conway, Lissette Bustamante, Marcos Herrera (aka Captain Morely Miniscule), and others.
