Come to Dance the Macabray (with Book Carts)

I first heard about ALA’s Book Cart Drill Team competition after Jon Scieszka and Mo Willems stumbled upon it a few years back and took over the commentary.  But I’d never been there in person until this year when I finally managed to drop by just in time to see this group.   (I had to leave after this, but heard from Mo that there was one more group that did some sort of John Cage thing.  Can anyone tell us more about that one?)
