Precisely one month from now, we will be in the midst of the inaugural festival!


In the meantime, we are working hard to collect the money we need for our Kickstarter campaign (7 days to collect $2k...spread the word??  Spread the generosity??  We need the help!)

We are pulling together last minute details and working hard to spread the word.

Pre-sale buttons are available at St Louis Curio Shoppe and STL STyLe, and we may be adding a few additional sites.

Pre-sale tickets will be available on our website ( soon, and the descriptions of our shows are up and runnin'.

Trekkin' ever onward!

Wow!  If there were any doubt that I am terrible at blogging, those doubts should be assuaged!  

I hope our hoards of readers understand that an absence of posts in not an absence of activity...but quite the opposite.

Of late, we have been...interviewing with various media, getting photographed, coordinating with performers/venues/businesses, launching and perfecting new and improved websites, making pitches, raising moneys, learning about rickshaws, and of course talking up some Fringe wherever we can to whoever will listen.  Plus, rocking gigs like Cinco de Mayo, Midwest Mayhem and the Grand Center Art Walk.

And, preparing for the FRINGE TEASE!  Yes, the fated day is almost upon us.  This coming Tuesday, May 15, at Fubar (3108 Locust) - show starts at 7 (doors at 6:30) and lasts about an hour.

A sneak taste of the shows to come, plus info on Fringe.  We invite you.

WHOA! So much to do, so little time...

Oy vay!  There has been more Fringing blustering along then we have time to track.

In this brief moment between some coordinating and a funeral, it seemed an appropriate time to slip in one of our most important efforts of this planning period...

Help us make Fringe.  Our deadline is May 31.  Our fundraising goal is $5k.  


If we don't make $5k by May 31 - even if we almost make $ don't matter.  We don't get none.  And it is that much harder to Make Fringe.

We've been reserved in asking for donations to date, because we aren't here to exploit our patrons and community...but here we go in one fell lump.

Help Make Fringe.  At least check out the delightful video in the Kickstarter Website, eh?

readysetGO! For some Schlafly.

We are hot off the heels of the IDES OF FRINGE (many thanks to The Fountain on Locust and all our wonderful artists, patrons, Beatle Bob and intrigued strangers for making it a well-enjoyed evening). 

And, we're kicking it into gear for the next thing.

If you were rained out, bed-ridden with illness, or just plain forgot - never fear.  We still love you.  Love you enough to throw another party for you.

Yep - the FRINGE FOLLY approaches April 1st, 6-8pm at the Schlafly Tap Room.  But that's not all...

Schlafly has given us an offer we can’t refuse.  Fringe Friends are challenged to “Operation: Fringe Recruits.”  

The rules are simple:
  1. Determine a team name.  Example: Team Hairy Banana Monster. 
  2. Recruit people to join Team Hairy Banana Monster. 
  3. When Hairy Banana Monsters arrive at FRINGE FOLLY, sign in at the door under team name. 
The team that gets the most attendees wins a special prize from Schlafly, one of our sponsors.

Beware the IDES OF FRINGE...and the FRINGE d' FRINGE.

So...not only are we pumped for tomorrow's IDES OF FRINGE party at the Fountain on Locust (featuring great food/drinks, especially the PLUM CRAZY ABOUT FRINGE cocktail; networking; updates from Fringe staff; sneak peeks at schwag; personal introductions from all thirty Fringe 2012 productions; and an open stage/mic)...

But we made headlines in the Beacon again.

Right on.
