It is hard not to be curious about something hawked by a hundred billboards as you drive through the back of beyond. Each of the colorful dinosaurs which stand in the backyard of the gift shop seems to have been molded from a vague memory of a picture of a dinosaur the creator once saw. Many of these campy roadside attractions are eerily abandoned but still a worthy destination for the curious motorist and touring percussion duo. Abandoned Roadside Chorale was commissioned by the percussion duo Escape X.
