Steve Hughes, the writer and publisher behind Stupor, a collaborative zine project, read Lucky Fucking Day - about a pumpkin-headed man, his unenthusiastic mistress, and a (factual) explosion of $100 bills on the freeway - to a backdrop of earthy scans of detritus and ephemera created for Detroit Brain Frame on October 18th, 2013.

Davin Brainard invited five audience members up to the front of the room to each request a drawing of anything, anything at all, a challenge to which he rose admirably, sketching on camera and quipping unremittingly at Detroit Brain Frame on October 18th, 2014.

DETROIT BRAIN FRAME

Brain Frame is a performative comix reading series from Chicago. Brain Frame invites alternative comics and zine artists to interpret their work in front of an open-minded audience, incorporating elements impossible to reproduce on a printed page. Brain Frame involves projections, performance, music, noise, props, costumes, horror, humor, and the avant-garde. Readers are encouraged to be as weird and ambitious as possible.

Brain Frame’s first Detroit edition features readings by locals artists as well as a few seasoned Chicagoans:

Suzanne Baumann
Tom Carey
Davin Brainard
Lyra Hill
Steve Hughes
Emma Rand
Cabaret BLACK EYE
