"ILLUMINATING THE EXTRAORDINARY DIMENSIONS OF EVERYDAY LIFE" reads a subhead on the Talking Band's website. It's a great description of what they do so well and so consistently.
Here's a list of favorites among the shows of theirs I've seen over the years:
Marcellus Shale (2013)
Hot Lunch Apostles (2012, 1983)
The Peripherals (2012)
The Walk Across America for Mother Earth (2011)
Panic! Eurphoria! Blackout! (2010)
Delicious Rivers (2006)
Black Milk Quartet (1998)
Betty Buffet's Theory of Relativity (1995)
The Three Lives of Lucy Cabrol (1987)
This is the Talking Band's 40th anniversary, and their new show, The Golden Toad, is opening tomorrow night at La Mama.
