Watch : A live piano performance from "Mr. Forefinger"

Charles Joseph Smith - A.K.A. - Mr. Forefinger - Live Piano from GONZO CHICAGO on Vimeo.

This is a live, impromptu piano performance.  Charles Joseph Smith is a performance artist, classical pianist, and dance artist based in Chicago.  He has many stage names, including the most formidable "Mr. Forefinger". 

Charles makes albums and sells them for $5, mostly at DIY shows, does impromptu dance performances with bands, both as a solo performance in itself, and to "enhance" his favorite bands.  He is everywhere.  Find him and support his work. 

This was a unscheduled performance inspired by "The Land Line" magazine, which was having a benefit for their issue's release that night at $ituationz.  Fun fact, a house member, Sarah Marie Coogan's origami artwork is right on top of that piano.  Enjoy!
