Vaudeville Underground Whorin'

The show last night was a total blast. It was a packed house (papered, it appears, by a bunch of kids from the nearby Funston School, but still), and although it was hard to hear with my ears blocked by the awesome El Payaso Malo mask I was rockin', I think we sounded great, and we got a great reaction from the crowd. All seven of us in the 11th Hour Orchestra were dressed like thugged-out beatniks, and although the juggler looked like he might know some wushu, I still maintain we could have kicked the ass of any of the other performers, had they chosen to step to us.

If you missed it, it's not too late! There's another show tonight:

Vaudeville Underground
Glade Memorial Hall
2640 W. Altgeld (Altgeld & Talman, in Logan Square)

Watch me scare children in my wrestling mask! See rum_holiday sling an autoharp like Wyatt Earp slung a six-gun! Hear theletterr's devilish cabaret stylings! Witness the world's first free-jazz ukelele solo! BE THERE!
