As the rest of the world drowns in oil, bombs, volcanoes and aliens, join us at the 14 Karat Cabaret as we break off from reality to float away to an island of Various Performances! These performances know no bounds, they adhere to no system of logic, they have no agenda, they are just pieces! And in these pieces we can all experience the sublime. Even if you walk away disliking everything you see (impossible!), these pieces will not judge you in return. This is not out of love, nor cool indifference, it is simply an uncommitted escape from the pressures of CNN. The people you work with at "the office" have their version of recreation, and the people who suffer from natural or unnatural disasters have no recreation at all, but for us: a romantic getaway with Various Performances! No themes, no gimmicks, just a dark room with drinks, sounds, and people facing you from the stage. Okay?

has existed in one form or another since 2006. Are we avreal band? Are we shitty performance art? No one really knows. Dress
for the weather- 50% chance of glitter showers, 50% chance of goldenvshowers.

**G Lucas Crane**
Brooklyn musician G Lucas Crane, also known as Nonhorse, also known as part of Performance Thanatology, will present his new tape piece "Between T and X".

**UnSaddestFactory Theater Company**
They will be performing, along with Benjamin Beast, in "The Title Sounded Better in French", set not quite in reality, but the next town over. The two main characters are two young women who find themselves onstage in search of a project; They work out failures, address broken hearts, and wake up laughing. The piece premiered at The Access Theatre in New York City and was also performed as a part of the 2009 Whartscape at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
