“DON’T SLEEP, THERE’S A WAR GOING ON”
Mothergirl will stand at the southeast corner of the intersection of Augusta and Milwaukee, on the strip next to the I-90/I-94 onramp. Using large feather pillows, each performer will beat herself about the head and face. The impotent rage will last for one and a half hours.
