olympicmedalsRUCKUS: The “SO(WHAT?)CHI WINTER OLYMPICS” HAIKU GUESS CHALLENGE! – Has it been four years already? Nothing says winter like Winter Olympics, so let’s get alpine and peppermint patty on this bad boy, by taking you inside the games without all that rampant homophobia and political unrest. You won’t need extra security when you step to our stage and listen to us recite original “haiklues” (trademark Dirty Gerund Show, 2014) where we’ll describe an event and you tell us which one it is. First to guess three correct, gets a frosty prize on us!

EVEN MORE EXCITED! The incredible ADAM TRUDEL will be trudelheading up the houseband this Monday! Adam was an integral member of the TickleBomb Orchestra a.k.a. the original DG House Band! He’s done a great deal of writing and composing on his own since those days, and it’s going to be incredible to see and hear him again! Who’s got the snack? Get at us? Go for the gold with us!!!
