Forrest Gump Pt. 3: Politics, Jared Andrews, Emili Earhart (free)


  • Mickey's Tavern 1524 Williamson Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Three local musicians turn the Forrest Gump audiobook into a strange live-music experiment. Info

Over the past year or so, a loose group of Madison musicians including Max Arthur (Double Ewes, The Minotaurs) and Spencer Bible (Tippy, Sleep Now Forever) have been engaged in a pretty quixotic live project: crafting a live soundtrack to Forrest Gump, and not the movie but the audiobook of Winston Groom's novel. This show will mark the third outing of this bizarre sound-collage experiment, and will concern itself with the parts of the audiobook that cover Gump's journeys to China and encounters with political figures. Tyler Fassnacht (Fire Heads, Proud Parents) will be joining Arthur and Bible this time around. Jared Andrews, a purveyor of oddball synth-pop from Fort Wayne, Indiana, headlines here. —Scott Gordon
