Psychedelic Horror Comics Plus Techno Pop

Lyra Hill of Brain Frame will perform her horror comic Go Down via live projection at the Burlington Bar in a mixed media show on Thursday, July 12. Videos of her performances--mixed media events in themselves as she brings reading material alive on screen--from CAKE and at Brain Frame are available online, but videos certainly don't stand in for the real thing. There's eerie music the accompany the creepy, sexy show and Hill's narration, too.

Alongside Hill's performance, there will be techno pop by Gel Set, Tyson Torstensen's Night Terror music project, plus music by the band Xina Xurner.

Head to the Burlington, located at 3425 W. Fullerton Ave., for the show set to start at 9pm sharp.
