Snow Spit Sperlock

One of the cast members picked up Wednesday's Dallas Observer and there's a spotlight mention on page 37 as one of this week's "Performance" highlights. Admittedly 3/4s of the story is about their interest in the name "Abercrombie"... but they wrote about us... and as P.T. Barnum, or Madonna... or Mae West... or Bette Davis... or Paul Lynde said... "There is no such thing as bad publicity." Or something like that. Here's the story:

We Dallas Observer bargain hunters aren't afraid to hit up knock-off vendors when we want that brand-name look for less. That's why we're stoked about The Abercrombie Forgery. We're gonna pick up some factory-shredded jeans (tears will be slightly off-center) and scoop up some graphic tees with clever sexual innuendo (even if "I heart worms at Jimmy's Sugar Shack" doesn't exactly make sense) all for half the price of the real things. Or, we would, if The Abercrombie Forgery were a designer imitation sale at a warehouse in Carrollton. But it's not. Rather, it's an original audio play performed by the Texas Radio Theatre Company, featuring literary detectives Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Arlington Museum of Art, 201 W. Main in Arlington, and 8 p.m. Saturday at Artistic Blends Coffee House, 5298 Trail Lake in Fort Worth. Tickets are $5 at the door. Call 817-319-8497 or visit --Andrea Grimes
