10 Days to Halloween and the 9th Annual Cabaret Macabre!

Halloween is almost upon us people and tickets are flying out the door, so I highly recommend picking up yours right away over at Brown Paper Tickets. We got a hell of a lineup, sure to be one of the best lineups yet. Baby Gramps! The Peculiar Pretzelmen! Bakelite 78! Bella Jovan International Belly Dancer! La Petite Mort! And, of course, our incomparable MC Diva le Déviant. Hesitate at your own peril!

Thanks for 8 Years of Cabaret Macabre!

Thanks to everyone that came out to Cabaret Macabre’s 8th year. We had a blast. As usual, the lineup was amazing: from the sultry, distinguished sounds of Eliza Rickman; to the briliant junkyard cacophony that is the Pretzelmen; to the sheer Grampy-ness of Baby Gramps and his co-horts; to the beauty and grace provided by all the dancers; to the sassy tongue of MC Diva Le Deviant; and finally to the sloppy drunken mess that is The Bad Things, a good time was had by all. Check us out in our cartoon-inspired costumes. We got old “Speed Racer” Panto there on the left, of course “Beeker” Hogan, “Popeye” the Pickpocket, “Mario” the Gypsy, “Mad Wilcox” as, well, Mad Wilcox and Steve “George Jetson” Kamke bringing up the right hand side. Sheer genius! Or, at least, better than last year. Thanks Columbia City Theater for having us and our crazy friends. Continue reading
