Lineup Announced for the 12th Annual Cabaret Macabre!

Cabaret Macabre LogoThat’s right kiddies. The Bad Things return to the Columbia City Theater for their annual Halloween bacchanal, Cabaret Macabre, celebrating its 12th anniversary.

This year’s lineup is set to be a humdinger, with Baby Gramps returning for his annual appearance, Balkan misfits Bucharest Drinking Team bringing their bombastic take on Eastern European party music, the gin-soaked rag-blues of The Jug Banditos and interspersed throughout the evening, burlesque and dance performance from Sinner Saint Burlesque and Miss J9 Fierce, co-producer of Cabaret Macabre. Diva Le Deviant returns as our host and closing out the night, will be your own Bad Things.

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, September 1st at 10am at Brown Paper Tickets, unless of course you were lucky enough to attend in the past or are on The Bad Things mailing list. If that’s you, check your inbox for a special fan club pre-sale. The rest of you hang tight and get them tickets quick before they’re gone on September 1st!

Still need some convincing? Here’s us performing with J9 Fierce last year:

See Ya’ll Soon!

Well, Cabaret Macabre was a smashing success full of incredible music, dancing, costumery, debaucherous activities of all sort, perfect….perfect.

An appropriate send-off for a well-needed rest. We announced on Facebook and at the show but we will be going on hiatus for an indefinite period of time while we recharge, relax and focus on other things. We have no doubt we’ll be back, just not sure when at the moment. May be six months, may be longer.

We’ll still update the site as we got tons of live tracks, unreleased tracks, videos, anecdotes and lord knows what else that we can share. Stay tuned for the next show! Bad Things out.

P.S. Here are some fan photos from our set at Cabaret Macabre. Enjoy!

Hard to believe it’s been 11 years…..

Well, the time is upon us. The big anniversary show is tomorrow and we’re anxiously preparing for what is sure to be a night of old friends, new friends, singalongs, tears, beers and more beers.

For the past couple weeks, I have been digging through old boxes of photos, scanning some of my favorite shots of the band and sharing them on our Facebook page. It’s been a great way for me to actually start tracking the dates of gigs that I was too drunk to remember. Took some research, some Google searching of old Stranger calendars, trying to read faded dates on the backs of old drugstore-developed photographs.  Continue reading
