My bloody Gal-entine

Justine’s Presents:
“Le Sang des Gitans: Gypsy Blood

……I never knew what life was until it ran out in a red
gush over my lips, my hands……..

This Saturday is our Halloween Party- our most decandent/macabre/rock and roll/dirty/beautiful wonderland night yet…..TWO STAGES.
Wolves, chandeliers, tribal dancers, a 12 piece vagabond circus mob from San Francisco in silk and ribbons, and a naked girl emerging from a bathtub of blood.

We’ll be decked as vampire/gypsy/victorian/circus stars, but come in whatever fabulous thing you think up.

The Yard Dogs Roadshow is a hobo cabaret, a living patchwork of vaudeville and rock and roll. Born from the saloon vaudeville that toured the Wild West in the late 1800′s and slammed into the underworld of modern American road culture. They require a sensitivity to the subtle and the absurd. They lead the modern hobohemian on a visual and sonic journey through part of history that may or may not have existed. It’s a true story on stage: sword swallowers, dancing dolls, fire eaters and sunset hobo poetry - all animated by the live sounds of the Yard Dogs cartoon heavy band. Yard Dogs Road Show is pure visual and sonic voodoo.

(featuring Rachel Brice and Mardi Love)
The Indigo Belly Dance, of which we have Rachel Brice and Mardi Love are the queens of tribal fusion belly Dance, truely beautiful, sometimes enchanting, sometimes macabre, often raucous, but always delightful, this outfit breathes new life into the movement and spectacle of a bygone era in their new knockdown revue.

WITH a performance by the beautiful: LEILA BAZANNI
This is our finale performance. Leila Bazanni, (yes, naked) emerging from a bathtub of blood, think Elizabeth Báthory.
