I'm happy to play a small role in the production of Creative Control, the monthly variety show Joe McAdam's been producing at saki (the record shop/distro in Logan Square that I call a workplace) since earlier this year. Joe has brought in of my favorite performers and does an incredible job setting the tone for a loose but engaging show each month. October's edition is next Friday, and, in observance of the Halloween season, will be an all-character showcase, featuring performances from some of the biggest weirdos going.
Paul Hornschemeier, an artist and graphic novel author whose work I've been a fan of for years, designed the poster for the show. You might recognize his work from the intro to IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang! The fact that this dude works with us totally blows my mind, and if you're lucky you might be able to pick up a copy of the poster at the show. Paul also has shirts featuring the delightfully cryptic Creative Control logo for sale at his webstore. You should buy one and support this fantastically talented dude.
Below is a clip from an earlier Creative Control, featuring Joe squaring off against Dr. Nick Chicken, and is a pretty perfect example of why I love this show.
