Do you have a taste for the weird and the outlandish? Need a little counter-culture to start your week? If so, Spiderhouse Ballroom on Tuesday, Mar. 26, will satisfy your endless curiosity for the strange. Teaming up together for their U.S. tour, Circus Convergence Sideshow presents Philadelphia’s own peculiar brothers “Jelly Boy the Clown” and “Matterz Squidling” as The Squidling Brothers Sideshow. “Jelly Boy” is known for being a natural born weirdo/living cartoon and “Matterz” is the impenetrable music man. These two have created a world beyond anyone’s craziest imagination, mixed with a humorously dark twist.
Included in this fantastic sideshow, from a country that is all things dark, cold and metal is Oslo, Norway’s Pain Solution. Pain Solution will appease your innermost terrifying, yet exciting, darkest inhibitions by bringing a painfully exuberant visual experience to life that will take you on a ride through the beautiful and bizarre. Members include “The Head Master”, “The Maniac”, and “The Princess of Scars” who are all guaranteed to blow your mind with a combination of the art of Fakir and “physical” theater. Providing the perfect live soundtrack for the event will be THAT Damned Band!.
All together, these wonderfully artistic creepers will be creating an experience that may not scar your body, but may scar your mind. No illusions or tricks here, just pure old-fashioned real sideshow freaks pushing the limits to the extreme.
Spiderhouse Ballroom is located at 2906 Fruth Street. Cover is $10. Show will run from 9 p.m. to midnight.
