Saturday we headed to our favorite haunt the Star Bar and caught the last half of the Knock Down Dragouts' set of genuine, 100% pure rockabilly. They mentioned their former drummer a few songs into it when I realized they had no drummer - the beat was knocked out by the stand up bass' slap-happy playing. Good stuff.
We'd been advised not to miss The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus by several different degenerates and our measly $5 was well spent. Performance art is slipping away in our cyber age and to see a ragtag collection of young folk wandering the earth entertaining with nothing but the guts and creativity to try something new was... well, something new. The lovely Philomena was the ringmistress and most memorable performer of the evening - we'll cut to the chase - with her plate spinning act. "Plate spinning?" you ask? Yeah, you've seen it before, but have you ever seen anyone lay on her back, insert a dildo into the proper orifice, insert a stick into the base of the dildo and spin a plate on the end of it? If so, you've probably seen it at the Bindelstiff Family Cirkus! We heard there were a wider variety of degenerate acts at larger venues but the Star Bar was fun in it's own, intimate fashion. More traditional acts led up to the aforementioned climactic finish, including a beautiful trapeze act and a gay cabaret act even more degenerate than those at Backstreets. Highly recommended for degenerate ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, degenerates of all ages...
