Vermillion Lies "Viewing a Vermillion Lies performance is kinda like watching someone open gifts wrapped by a demented grandparent. Between songs onstage, the Boekbinder sisters open boxes and crates revealing unexpected found items like toy pianos and typewriters, which they incorporate into their folky music." -Stuart Thornton, Monterey County Weekly Corpus Callosum "like something you¹d hear if you walked into a ghost town saloon and the instruments were playing themselves along with a giant singing marionette... these music-makers are both behind and ahead of their time." - Joe Younglove, KZUM, Lincoln, NE The Crank Ensemble home-made noise! Moe! Staiano, former member of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and found-object percussionist Kim Boekbinder of Vermillion Lies and Gino Robair (known for his work with Splatter Trio and Tom Waits) as a potluck percussion duo. This means you bring found objects and they have to play them! $5-15 sliding scale, all ages
