About Comic Strip Music Night Curated by Bill Kartalopoulos and Mark Newgarden

Classic comic strips come to musical life for one night only! In the
days before television, comic strips provided daily visual
entertainment to millions of Americans. And in the days before radio,
comic strip characters were celebrated in songs published for home
performance - songs rarely recorded and never performed since their
heyday. At Jalopy, a host of talented musicians will re-enliven comic
strip-based song-sheets, featuring characters both famous ("Barney
Google") and obscure ("Lady Bountiful"), and will also perform later,
little-heard songs from diverse other sources. Join us at Jalopy for a
rousing night of music starring Little Nemo, The Katzenjammer Kids,
Pogo Possum, Li'l Abner, and more! Performers will include Doug Skinner,
Peter Stampfel, Robin Goldwasser & Chris Anderson, and Meg Reichardt.
