Split The First Atom: A Ritual In The Making of Everything

Our story begins the moment Lu, our young heroine, chooses to follow the strange markings painted into a handmade book she found in the wall behind her parents furnace. The book itself is older than its own pages, painstakingly labelled: CrushKit in tea-stained bits of eggshell and twine. Across the bottom of the book the byline, printed in gold foil letters, reads: Great Grandmother Charlotte

We follow Lu as she follows the story in a mixed-up book she found. Come with us to meet Great Grandmother Charlotte in the flesh and hear the stories as they are told on a horizon line where the Summers die and History meets its final Muse. Come with us to a line drawn at the bottom of a world that sings love songs to the Ghosts of Wild Mustangs as they ride dusk after dusk after dusk. Come with us and hear the stories for yourself.

We will have zines for sale following the show: $12

Stephanie Rearick has been performing in bands and solo since 1993. She currently has 2 solo projects, Stephanie Rearick and Stephanie Rearick Jr. Stephanie Rearick Jr. is on Casio, trumpet and loops – it’s beatier, bouncier Rearick. In addition, Rearick plays drums and shares vocal duties in Ladyscissors, a 4-piece also featuring Lorrie Hurckes on guitar and vox, Anne Bull on bass and vox, and Brent George on guitar.


db pedersen experience (duet performance with Rapheal Boehm). Madison’s tracheal fireworks display, will play a duo set with his roomie, perchance to canoodle Rumi, eschew heartache and rejoice in the universal <3 of matters.
Thrilled to be a part of this evening AND that Stephanie Rearick is on board
