Amateur Versus Professional at Figure One this Thursday

This is something interesting worth checking out this week: A collaboration between experimental/documentary filmmaker David Gracon (of EIU, and maker of Walls of Sound, which we featured last year) and Dr. Brad Decker (who will provide the live music score & performance), plus some others. It’s happening on Thursday, May 29th from 7-9 p.m. at Figure One in Downtown Champaign. 

Here’s more information from their posting:
