This event is free to all. There is no admission charge.

The Hearding Cats Collective kicks off its concert season with an afternoon of  avant-pop, inspired movement, and just plain weird fun. Tory Z Starbuck has been challenging St. Louis’ preconceptions for 30 years* and he shows no signs of stopping now. The multi-instrumentalist ensemble uses unconventional, often self-created instruments and even when they resort to familiar instruments, they manage to uses them in unconventional ways.  Tory is joined by Venus Slick, Dr. Bruce McLaughlin, Tony Engelhardt, and dr. mabuse .

Tory routinely provides music for with dance ensembles around the city and for this show he will be joined by a small company of dancers coordinated by Sandy Busken
