Salonathon Performances

Between 2011 and now, I've done various short performances and screenings at Salonathon, a Chicago-based weekly event and more that is home to "underground, emerging, and genre-defying art". See the Salonathon website to learn about the magic that is Salonathon. The following are (to the best of my current memory) of the various Salonathons I've performed at, and I'll be adding images and videos as I find them.
