8 pm Hot Dog Boat!?
What is it this thing you keep hearing about? It's a Collaborative Songwriting Workshop and Performance about Hot Dogs with Burt Murder. Bring an instrument. Be ready to play, to write, to sing, and jam.There will be special grilled gourmet hot dogs on the menu, prizes for our singing hotdog heroes and a clown dressed up as a hot dog. Yes, it's ridiculous! How does it work? The wide-eyed ginger-bearded musician known as Burt Murder invites audience members to “bring an instrument to the venue and be ready to perform a song that mentions the iconic food known as hot dogs.” Get uber creative and sing out about franks, weiners, veggie dogs or Michigan hots! The only rule: just mention a bloody hotdog (in any form at least once) in your song. (Come early to pen your song and enjoy an adult beverage.)
9 pm Burt Murder
Is it a band or a harlot from a Victorian penny dreadful? Sweeney Tod's neighbor? Not sure.
Rocking a wacky, wacky, wacky camp-drag persona, Burt Murder makes lo-fi, experimental dance pop, which he’s documented across 5 + albums thus far. We lost count! His amped-up band of many-monikered musicians joins him on stage for a rousing hour+ set of pure musical mayhem or what they call "disaster rock" or "dog jazz".
