Improv Everywhere's Mp3 Experiment Coming to Chicago

By Margaret Lyons in Arts & Entertainment on Sep 15, 2008 9:57PM

Mark your calendars, public art fans: Improv Everywhere is taking its spectacle-making show on the road. The annual "mp3 experiment," in which participants all download the same mp3 and convene to follow its dance-y, peaceful instructions, is coming to town. The Chicago leg of the tour is October 5, place and time TBD. Fun!

Improv Everywhere is the group behind the annual "no pants" subway ride in New York that branched out to other cities earlier this year. This doesn't have much to do with anything, but: that's Mad Men's Rich Sommer in the top photo. He plays Harry.
