Wouldn't you just know that the night I decide to bag out on the Open Mic, all kinds of crazy puppet work takes place. Yes, puppets. Here's a note that Ben Krieger posted today on the Olive Juice board.
"So Level II was gracious enough to leave his puppet stage at the Sidewalk. On Monday we set it up in the corner and he was a puppet sidekick. Richard Ringer made a puppet and helped out as well. It was kind of like Antifolk Sesame Street. The puppets were joking about Puerto Rican Day parade, goggling at the elaborate loop station setups...I think the puppets even hit on a few performers. "
