HELLZAPOPPIN CIRCUS SIDESHOW
Spectators will experience one of the world’s last authentic circus sideshows with performances using the human anatomy and death-defying stunts of mind over matter yet with no blood and no pain. This Vaudeville Freak Show of wonder features LIVE stunts of mind over matter like Fire Eating * FireBreathing * The Bed of Nails * The Human Block-head * The Razor Sharp Machete Walk * Acrobatic Stunts * Glass Eating * Sword Swallowing * Knife Throwing & Archery using human targets * Illusion’s like the Chinese Blade Box of Death * Human Oddities & Curiosities such as a real-live half-man who walks on his bare hands on broken shards of glass and much more.
The Brains have never been a band to follow the rules. In fact, they’ve made a point of utterly destroying every one of them with each album they release and every show they play. These hardworking road warriors have brought their eye-popping live show to the four corners of the globe. The band has played packed houses throughout Europe, Canada, Mexico and the United States, alongside acts like Rancid, Mad Sin, Nekromantix, The Offspring, The Reverend Horton Heat, and many more. They stand out as a group to watch, by constantly striving to increase proficiency in their craft.
A dark, twisted circus sideshow that’s built around bombastically grooving melodic death n’ roll is swinging forward with captivating glee, mesmerizing merriment and the plundering power of lethal pirates toward those brave souls who hand over a ticket to be torn by Avatar.
