CHIMNEY CHOIR DREAM ENCORE

Friday, April 21, 2017 | Mercury Cafe, Denver CO

A sold-out multimedia immersive-theatrical show at the Mercury Cafe. In this show, the band opened a mysterious and forbidden box, inviting the audience into a cosmic world of magical realism in which deep sea fish swim with comets, constellations and galaxies are made of volcanic bubbles, magicians conjure dazzling illusions and a psychedelic jester narrowly escapes a mysterious interdimensional police force. Featuring live VR painting and a stunning projection show by the DenVR collective. The show, like the band, defies description and simply must be experienced.
