    "The different installations add up to an “ongoing” show that lasts two hours at a time, but attendees are welcomed to come and go as they please, engaging as quickly or deeply as they choose...patrons will learn that the subjects of these stories 'are not so different from them,' which is important in an age when 'we are so numb to hearing suicide statistics, dates, ages, etc. We want to show the audience the people, the lives, the stories behind the numbers...'"

Aron Kader, the comedian who made waves with the Axis of Evil comedy tour in 2007, is coming in from Los Angeles. Chicago bands City of Djinn and Al-Thawra will be playing, along with Vancouver’s Puzzlehead and Baltimore’s Bidet, among others.
