Brain Frame Hosts a CAKE Fundraiser

Performance based comic reading Brain Frame hosts a fundraiser for CAKE (Chicago Area Comics Expo) on Friday, April 12 at Peanut Gallery, located at 1000 N. California Ave. Brain Frame supports the comics community giving artists a stage to perform their work, a natural collaboration with CAKE, Chicago's premier comics festival.

Host Lyra Hill will preside over performances by artists Andy Burkholder, Alyssa Herlocher, Paul Nudd, and Jeremy Pettis. There will be musical accompaniment by Alex Inglizian and Stephen Ptácek.

There will also be an artwork auction throughout the night including pieces donated by Lilli Carré, Edie Fake, Jeremy Onsmith, Aaron Renier and over two dozen other artists.

The event opens at 7pm and there is a $5 cover.
