Year One – A Rogue’s Gallery Crisis!

Come celebrate a year of (relatively) successful violence, debauchery, and crime with The Rogues!

Attend a Rogues Gallery art show curated by Fugitive Color himself, featuring variety-show style performances by the Rogues and friends, including:

– A Freakuency DJ set
– Live painting by Fugitive Color
– Live music
– Puppet show
– Cooking lessons from Terry Finkhouse
– Someone else you remember from the show doing something else you’re interested in….
– Burlesque performances….maybe
– Like… some kind of interpretive acrobatic…act
– Magic?….!
– Whatever, we might even kill somebody live on stage. I don’t care. You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts.

We WILL be filming for a top secret video project, and costumes are not mandatory, but we WILL kill you on camera if you aren’t wearing one. If you’d like to be an extra in the video shoot, the only requirement is to come dressed in a villainous costume (all costuming levels acceptable – as long as it’s an original idea).

Every attendee will receive a complimentary poster print with exclusive Year One artwork only available at the show. Variant Cover Art by guest artists & “Monthly” Cover Art is subject to limited availability – First Come, First Serve.
