Oh, shit! Action Figure Bar Redux!!! 5/15/11

Sunday, May 15th from 2pm to 8pm!

Like I said the first time, Curtis has a TON of toy parts. Round one of Build Your Own Action Figure barely put a dent in the surplus! Join us next month to do it all over again. The only catch is that this time...it's $8.00 a figure. How's that for inflation? You love it! See you on Sunday, May 15th!

All You Can Build ActionFigureBar - 4/23/11

Saturday, April 23 from 4pm to 10pm!

Ok, here's the deal. Curtis has been saving action figure pieces and parts for, like, a million years. Arms, legs, heads, guns, whips, chains, minions, belts, hairpieces, eyeballs, skulls...you name it, we probably have it. We have decided to put them to use. On this day, you can pay $5 to hang out in the Ultra Lounge and build your very own incoherent action figure. All the parts, all the glue, all the putty, and all the paint. Everything will be here for you to utilize. You get one body and unlimited 'other stuff'. If you finish up and want to do another one, you can buy another body! Give it your all, build the action figure you always wanted but could never buy because your needs were too hyper-specific! Now is your chance. Live your dream!

Paradox Explorer in the Ultralounge - 4/16/11

Paradox Explorer is an Ann Arbor based group that uses music, video, photography, electronics, lights and dance to create immersive performances. With a hybrid musical style that incorporates electronica, psychedelic, funk and classical genres, the group paints sonic landscapes which titillate your mind and inspire your body to dance. Paradox Explorer charts new territory on stage with the incorporation of Virtual Reality gloves, sensors and other interactive electronics. The human body is used as a tool to shape the sounds, images and lights emanating from the stage. Far from being a gimmick, the group strives to incorporate these technologies organically into the creative process.

The performance on April 16th is based on the theme of traveling into deep inner and outer space. The event will begin at 9:30 PM with a set by DJ Erika (Ectomorph / erika.net). The main act begins at 11:00PM. For this performance, Paradox Explorer will be joined on stage with dancer Mabel Syrup from Tickled Fancy Burlesque Company.
