“May These Changes Make Us Light”
LOVE-O-RAMA Records presents the 3rd annual Winter Show Collaborative:
“May These Changes Make Us Light”
St. Louis, MO – Atnas is Santa’s daughter, and she loves the North Pole along with all the people in it. But she’s itching to get out, to see the world and explore what part she plays in it.
Moments before she leaves on her journey, a space monkey from the future comes back in time to learn what Christmas was like in the year 2009. The space monkey, who only speaks telepathically like all beings in the future, asks her to guide him on a quest to learn the meaning of Christmas as it was back in the day. As they journey through past, present, and into future Christmas, they encounter experiences and characters that they will never forget.
Come see the recreation of the Christmas myth, as these irresistible characters wind down the Yellow Brick Road to the day after Thanksgiving at Wal-Mart… through Wolf Puppy’s predatory darkness… to OZcar the Grouch's dumpster… and into an inexplicable transformation of the human heart!!

Mark Pagano - FIRE DOG Frontman/Fresh Approach
Mark and Brandon attended the same high school and played in several groups together. Mark and Celia, on the other hand, met when Mark’s brother moved to Lawrence, Kansas, where Celia attended college and began her musical career. They have been singing together in various settings ever since. The more recent creation of FIRE DOG, however, put a new twist on it all as Brandon and Celia, who had both played guitar in former collaborations with Pagano, suited up to form the band’s rhythm section; a role that they have grown into together, making for a tight thumping groove thing that will get you off your ass! FIRE DOG brings the LOVE! FIRE DOG is currently working on a follow up to their debut with more upbeat, driving, melody-infused, rocknroll!
