Monday To-do: Aug 8

Pretty Things Peepshow is back in town tonight for another show at Smoke & Barrel Tavern.

See sword-swallowing sensation Miss Heather Holliday, the “Midget of Mischief” Lil Miss Firefly, the professional provocateur go-go Amy and the “Dapper Dan of Danger” Donny Vomit as they perform their unique blend of sideshow and burlesque.

This is the third time PTPS has brought their tour to town since late 2010, and with them this time around is one-man rockabilly band Eddy Price (thEMPIRES).

Ticket availability for these shows is usually pretty limited. If there are any left, they’ll cost ya $15 at the door.

Also set for tonight is another round of Metal Monday at Rogue and Cathead Biscuit is at JJ’s.

Happy Birthday
