I’m not usually such a fan of sampler shows—too often they remind me of the most frustrating experiences at thrift stores, when you spend what seems like an eternity pawing through items that don’t smell quite right and never find anything in your size.

But. I do like Catch. It’s a multidisciplinary, Brooklyn-based performance laboratory organized by Andrew Dinwiddie and Jeff Larson, the men behind Get Mad at Sin! … somehow there’s a spirit and generosity about it; even when I don’t like what Andrew and Jeff choose, I get the sense every element was hand-picked with particular care.

Catch is coming to the Works tonight. The lineup includes artists whose work I know and love and those I’ve never seen but am intrigued by. I’m pretty sure something will fit.
