  1. Ahhhh, Life Size Mouse Trap! I saw it for the first time at Burning Dude back in the day… favorite part was that it took FOREVER to actually work, but that's all part of the schtick I suppose. What made that wait fun and made us all laugh and dance was the great entertainment of one of the raddest one-woman bands I have ever seen. Esmerelda Strange had me mesmerized!
