Brooklyn based rock band ‘Baba Yaga’ was brought into being with the joining of Morgan Jesse Lapin (drums / vocals), Dave Keen (guitar / violin / vocals) and Zach Rose (bass / guitar / keys / vocals). With influences ranging from Motown, Garage, Surf, Classical and Tribal, the trio self describe their sound as ‘a series of varied tonal qualities performed simultaneously over a succession of percussive slaps and thuds in several assorted time measures and motifs’. In 2012, the trio composed the theme for ‘The Colbert Report’s Hobbit Week’ entitled ‘The Pundit: Or Colbert and Back Again’, and in March 2013 released their self-titled studio album ‘Baba Yaga’.

Ticketsfor performances November 24th – 28th are just $20 & $35.
With its trademark humor, irreverence and originality, The Second City is giving the classic Charles Dickens’ Christmas tale a hearty twist.
Dickens’ famous Victorian streets spring to life as Scrooge, Tiny Tim, that fat, plucked goose and those know-it-all ghosts find themselves hopelessly mixed up with anachronistic characters, hilarious improv and an ever-changing stable of starry, drop-in special guests. A recipe chock full of Holiday hilarity!
Writers Peter Gwinn (formerly of The Colbert Report) and Bobby Mort (currently of The Colbert Report) join Director Marc Warzecha (Resident Director, The Second City) and a cast which features Frank Caeti (MADtv), Larry Joe Campbell (According to Jim), Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Amanda Blake Davis (Second City Does Dallas at the Dallas Theatre Center), Brian Stepanek (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) and Jean Villepique (Up All Night).

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to incorporate a pole(s), it can be any type, into a photograph with the book or audiobook of “I Am A Pole (And So Can You)” in the most interesting, creative, and imaginative way possible.
If you are camera-shy, that is ok, you do not need to appear in the photo yourself, just the book and a random pole somewhere out there in the universe need to be featured in the photo. If you know your location and the type of pole you are shooting, feel free to include that information in your submission. To ensure that everyone has a fair chance at entering, we have split the competition into three different categories.
