Tinderbox Circus Sideshow (LEX, KY)//
An all-american classic circus sideshow, combining timeless acts of shock and amazement with a punk rock presentation, and a dirty south attitude. The result is a uniquely modern experience; unlike anything else in today’s entertainment industry.
Their edgy act that is part carnival freak show, part burlesque, will leave you on the edge of your seat and resisting the urge to cover your eyes, whether it’s pounding nails into their face, walking across broken glass, swallowing things they probably shouldn’t or plenty of other sideshow stunts that combines a vaudevillian vibe with a punk rock soul. This roving band of tattooed carnies are not for the faint of heart.
Ford Theatre Reunion (LEX, KY)//
Citing influences as diverse as punk, balkan, jazz, metal, nightmares, and wet dreams, Lexington, Kentucky’s Ford Theatre Reunion creates a sound that defies easy definition. In one moment ethereal vocals drift over flighty clarinet and melancholy accordion, and in the next moment it’s a full-bore, guitar-snarling rock n’ roll assault. It is the perfect soundtrack for a puppet show at a funeral or board game night with some werewolves.
