Tonight, there’s an interesting event at Trash Bar called Church Night. It’s variety show and satire on a church service that features burlesque, music, comedy, an organist in drag, sing-a-long hymns, and a “shots and tots communion.” It starts at 8:00 and it’s FREE. The group that puts it on is based out of DC, click here for more about them.
This is the end of days and that rumble in the distance is the wagons of The Little Top Circus & Medicine Show, rolling into town to save your sad sinner’s soul. Led by the evangelically infamous Good Reverend Doctor Professor Elucius Clay, this sideshow of cautionary tales will horrify (watch as Stitch the Geek mutilates his own flesh!), titillify (surrender to the undulant charms of the reigning Miss Coney Island, Cherry Delight, and the bosomosity of Miss Direction), and flummox (recoil at Bobby Phobia’s feats of physiology), all to the blood-stirring musicianing of Texas Red (“The Gypsy Fiddler”) and Ratty Mousebites & Miz E of The Hot Sardines.
