Dangerous Petting Zoo – December 11 at The Mix



It’s been a busy 12 months for MCMC and next year is 10 years straight for us putting on shows in Seattle. This one gets a bunch of our friends together for a night of songs, stretching out, and singing along. The songs of Birds May Bite and Goatgirl tossed splendidly with the rip roaring, extra crispy, jumbo spiced flavor of Figeater and the Horsey. Who knows the next time the Birds or the Horsey will saddle up, so mark your winter calendar for this show before hibernation sets in.

birds may bite http://www.birdsmaybite.com/

Disjunctive, raucous, soaring, and powerful – Figeater is a textural, tribal exploration of organic movement, instigated by clarinetist/composer Beth Fleenor. Improvisations are punctuated, buttoned and launched by original compositions and songlike psychedelic episodes, with an emphasis on environmental participation. It has been called sonic spelunking – or an all improvised fun time. "Daringly, {Figeater} was down right pretty, not a term often associated with free improv…while later it was visceral, convulsive and more than a bit creepy…" (Seattle Weekly) Figeater is a time-based, performance process emphasized ensemble vehicle where audience and environment are recognized members of the configuration performing. It is through the combination of these components that the performance takes place.
