sockpuppetBONUS RUCKUS: The First Annual “Sock-Puppet Lip-Sync” Poem Performance Challenge! Ya’ll got socks right? Still bummed about not having ever appeared on Sesame Street? Well good, put them to good use and slap a silly face on ’em. Then bring them to the Dirty Gerund and perform your best poem while making it look like the puppet’s got it on lock down! Best performance is chosen by the audience and the winner will get a googly eyed prize, or a drink on us! Either way, it’s gonna get googly! Partially inspired by our first ever puppet who rocked our open mic last week! Ya, we’re into it…. so what?

Expect a return of our regular DIRTY GERUND DUCT TAPE BAND DG_FirstFriday_17x22this week! YOSH & CHICKEN always wear socks while serving you the best in burgers and cocktails! Snacks? Art? We’re about one week away from the FIRST UPSTAIRS RALPH’S RUCKUS REVIEW RESIDENCY SHOW w/ Duende, Megan Thoma and so much more! CLICK ON THE EVENT INVITE & PASS IT ON! SPREAD THE WORD!!!! Like now! So many thanks and props to friend and graphic artist guru JESSICA LOVINA O’NEIL for her fine poster work!
