Last Friday,  Georgia Hubley’s Little Black Egg project expanded into a larger improv ensemble at Raleigh, NC’s King’s Barcade, joined by Ira Kaplan, James McNew, Steve Gunn, William Tyler, and featuring prerecorded elements provided by Letha Rodman Melchior.    Melchior, a sound & visual artist with a rich history including but not limited to playing in NYC’s Ruby Falls and numerous works under her own name, has been battling stage IV melanoma the last few years, at considerable financial hardship.

The folks at NYC Taper have made the full performance available with an accompanying donation to Letha’s GiveForward fund ;  full details are here.  The download is only gonna be up for another 5 days, so get moving.
