"Don't respond, hold my breath, move the sofa away from the wall, and lay down in the gap made between, and hide. And wait. And when they go, poke my fingers out the letterbox. Stretch them wide.

She's standing in her bedroom. She's come back to reclaim what she buried. The car waits outside.  

On debt, eviction, childhood, and the thing under the floorboards. On what remains, long after you've paid it off.

After multi award-winning NOTHING and SOME PEOPLE TALK ABOUT VIOLENCE, Barrel Organ return following their third show. ANYONE'S GUESS HOW WE GOT HERE is a road-trip. A haunted-house. A bedtime story. A photo-album. An '80s fantasy film. A demolition project. A riot.
