Brain Frame, Chicago's legendary underground comix-weirdo-performance happening, celebrated the end with a Grand Finale on its 3rd anniversary, August 9th, 2014. Seven performative comics readings by a bevy of local talents unfolded on the historic stage at Thalia Hall, surrounded by interactive installations in opera boxes; musical performances from Tyson Torstensen, Flux Bikes, and DJ Pluto; cheers and human pyramids by the Spirit Team (interns Emma Rand, Brad Rohloff, and Lillie West); and the release of the Brain Frame Yearbook.
This video captures the entire event and the buoyant spirit of the extended Brain Frame family. Thank you to all our supporters over the years, everyone who worked an event, collaborated on a poster, or just showed up to party. Never forget! Brain Frame Forever!
