About SWAMP IS ON
Pig Iron Theatre Company and Dr. Dog joined forces in a curated show at the 2015 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
With generous support from the Knight Foundation, PNC Arts Alive, and the Independence Foundation, Pig Iron welcomed The Dr. Dog Pop Detachment and The Pig Iron Psychedelic Signals Auxiliary to our facilities here in Philadelphia for a concert and experiment series. The Auxilliary tuned in to rare frequencies that operate beneath and around approved government bandwidths, using proprietary equipment that they’ve been keeping under wraps for years. Members of Dr. Dog, disaffected scientists from the former Orbital Tracks program, and Pig Iron artists worked together to decode messages from the Swamp. Thank you everyone for bringing your old cassette tapes - the collective magnatism was key to our success.
SWAMP IS ON ran Spetember 9-12, 2015 at Union Transfer.
