Environmental Encroachment is a Chicago-based marching band that bills itself as a magic circus band. The unit is a group of free-thinking musicians who are out there not just talking about reclaiming the streets for art and culture, but doing it. EE is on its way to a gathering of like-minded bands in Somerville, MA called Honk! Fest which starts the band’s East Coast tour. In a change of pace for mediageek we’ll listen to a dozen members of the band play live in the studio, in addition to talking with them about the origins of the band and why they do what they do.
