The Halloween circus is coming to town: Sideshow Villains at Alhambra Palace (Episode 896)

Get ready for a live event unlike anything else happening in Chicago this season: Sideshow Villains’ Deviant Cabaret is happening at Alhambra Palace (1240 W. Randolph) on Sunday, October 22.

Described as “a mix of dance, circus, and cabaret acts designed to disturb and delight,” the show will feature Sideshow Villains as well as aerialists, a juggler, trapeze artist, dancers, aerial rope artist, and performance artist Spitfire. This is going to be insane, and insanely awesome.

Joining me to talk about the event are Dante and Greg of Sideshow Villains. We also talk about their recent release, “Claws for Breakfast,” which features “seven songs centered around various criminalities.”

Thanks to Alhambra Palace for providing food for this episode!
