Support the indie craft movement at CAM this holiday season. Jurors from the Rock N Roll Craft Show, STL Craft Mafia, ShowMe Etsy, and Firecracker Marketworks present top local artists, artisans, and crafters, all dedicated to the handmade, selling their original merchandise on site. Live music and entertainment by Googolplexia and KDHX DJ Roby Levy of Juxtaposition.

With his electric banjo and ukulele, accordion and trombone kazoo, Robert Severson has crafted Saint Louis, Missouri’s Googolplexia into a one-man outsider vaudeville. Severson stomps, claps, and gurgles into the disparate, cobwebbed corners of American music and sometimes beyond. Song to song, Googolplexia swings between styles and strategies, evoking Elvis, Belafonte, Whitney Houston, Gene Austin, Andy Kaufman, The Ink Spots, Yves Montand, karaoke, opera-from-scratch, improv comedy, Shakespeare, Smokey Robinson, gypsy, calypso, bal-musette; but whether it’s a song about a giant monster fish, heartbreak and working fast food, his beloved Volvo 240, or even an off-the-cuff cover, Severson’s crackling, three-steps-ahead wit and pyrotechnical phrasing give the songs beating hearts. Expect screwball theatrics at their most hand-embroidered.

From intimate English-garden pop to next month’s dance-floor sensations, Rob Levy’s bag of transoceanic treats is comfortably crowded with nice things you’ll like.
