999 EYES FREAKSHOW
10 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.
Those who recall with twisted fondness or wracked nerves the phenomenon known as the Jim Rose Circus on the 1992 Lollapalooza tour or Nine Inch Nails' 1995 Downward Spiral tour are well advised not to miss 999 Eyes Freakshow. Celebrating living human oddities, the vaudeville-style show features the antics of the Half Woman, Lobster Girl, the Dancing Dwarf and Black Scorpion. Also performing is That Damned Band, which has an authentic accordion-driven repertoire of original and folk songs from traveling midway origins, who've been described as sounding like “A circus train wrecked into a hobo camp where wandering Jews and Gypsies from Eastern Europe have been learning Irish drinking songs from Tom Waits.” Eighteen and older are admitted.
