Project Zongo Telethon

Sun 10/06/19 Facebook Live Project Zongo telethon 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Three years ago, a law-student at Valparaiso University named Yusif Bandaogou asked Paul Schreiner to help him improve the lives of his community in the Zongos of Accra, Ghana (in West Africa). Yusif wanted to take his vision of a better life that he experienced in Valparaiso back to the Zongos by building three story, modern residences, with interior bathrooms and kitchens, each one being 550 square feet to displace the 175 square foot single rooms in which his family and neighbors had been occupying since the early 20th century. And so, Project Zongo was born.

Fear The Accordion

The Nest - 803 Franklin St - FREE thanks to Michigan City Mainstreet Association
Sat 10/05/19 7:00 PM

Greetings, loyal citizens of Michigan City Sector! In these dark times when our underground complex is increasingly infiltrated by secret mutants from the deadly wasteland outside our armor-plated walls, no weapon is more fearsome than the accordion. And no one wields an accordion more fearsomely than Captain Ambivalent.

In his Computer-mandated effort to explain how we got to this point, he looks to film classics like Metropolis, Star Wars, and Robocop, 1980s fear culture, and a role playing game called “Paranoia,” and discovers he may have had a little hand in The Complex himself.

Report to your re-education pods for sidesplitting musical madness!

A dark and stormy night with an unfortunate last-minute cancellation and no-show, but it made us appreciate Joel Brussell, Melissa Dittmann, and Mike O all the more.
