An art-punk-rock dance party led by Telepathic Liberation Army, Ononos and Glitterbang, followed by a continued dance party at the hands of Mathematix and Dewey Decimal?? YES PLEASE. This is an all-star line up people, if you care even in the slightest about Seattle's leading creators, especially in the grunge-queer world, you won't miss this. The black plague couldn't keep me from an Ononos show, but with TLA too? and I haven't seen Glitterbang yet as they are fresh off the grill, but have heard great things.
