    Event Description:
    "These cats play everything AND the kitchen sink!" – Art Observer

    In 2002 a mysterious green iceberg was discovered by a band of pirates in Lake Michigan. Frozen inside were the Pickles, cold solid in a chunk of sour brine. The DFPP were hoisted aboard, chiseled free and re-animated by the ships crude pirate scientist chef using a combination of spirits and pickle juice. As the DFPP awoke from their icy slumber they started singing and have never stopped. Where the Pickles came from and where they are going remains a mystery. From outhouse to henhouse to waffle house to public house both hither and yon the Pickles have caused a rafter-shaking ruckus wherever they roll, dreaming a hobo's knapsack of stories and songs along the way. These Pickle folks have wobbled their magical musical gypsy medicine wagon from one end of this here country to t'other, with stops including Lollapalooza, Wakarusa and Telluride along the way.

    Armed with a Frankenststonian array of homemade monster instruments, their recipe is flavored with Jug Band, Hokum and Honkeytonk spices. You'll relish the Pickles! Band members include Daniel Daniel on vocals, jug, washtub bass, swambone, flamingophone, saw, kazoo, and kitchen sink; Alan Selvidge on vocals, canjo, panjolele, and suitcase bass; Kathryn Diana on washboard, cigar box fiddle and vocals; and Charlie King (formerly of Asylum Street Spankers and Stephen Lynch) on vocals, dobro, hamBoLin, jug, slide whistle, song sandwich, pig and banjo.

    Join the Pickles at 2:00pm for a make-n’-take instrument building workshop — guaranteed fun for all ages! — and be sure to come at 7:00pm for a full-out Deep Fried Pickle Project performance experience!
