"Bestiarum Vocabulum" at rec room May 21

Dear rec roomer,

I once had a penny goldfish (Hermie) who lived 12 years. Other than that, I've never really had any pets, or formed any bonds with animals. Probably my favorite animal as a kid was this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8aGlOj2VFo&feature=related.

Nothing against animals, I'm really just more of a children and houseplants kinda girl. So this Wednesday, May 21 @ 8 p.m., as rec room presents a show devoted to animals, I'll leave the pontificating to the experts. Namely, this week's curator, Jacob S. Knabb, and these cool cats/farmers/zoologists/shepards/safari guides, etc. who will be performing along with him: Philip Jenks & Simone Muench, Matthew Guenette, Jonathan Messinger, Greg Purcell, Erikka Mikalo, Aras and the Volodkas, Nick Garcia, Miki Howald, and Nicolette Bond.

If instinct compels you, come to the neighborhood where cougars run free (till they are gunned down in alleys), this third Wednesday in May, one day after the full moon, for: "Bestiarum Vocabulum" a show Jacob describes like this: "Here begins an examination of the nature of beasts. Of lions and panthers and tigers, wolves and foxes, dogs and apes. Of poets and fictioneers and audio-visual mavens, lurkers and disreputable types, hyenas and scalawags, and all of the mean, lean, mangy, hidebound skinny, worthless cattle in every particular drove."
