Hellzapoppin Sideshow Revue featuring Zamora the Torture King

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-05-26

Billed as a “kiddie show for adults,” a “hellacious fountain of youth,” and “the world’s largest and greatest touring circus sideshow,” the Hellzapoppin Sideshow Revue has made appearances on the National Geographic Channel and toured Sweden with Marilyn Manson. This Sunday (after nu-metalheads Saliva, Sevenboard, Lokey, and Carmeci have burst everyone’s eardrums) master of ceremonies Bryce “the Govna” Graves will present a host of human oddities, including monstrous celebrities like Zamora the Torture King, the World Famous Penguin Boy, “Queen of the Underground” Slymenstra Hyman (from the band GWAR), and a cast of sword swallowers, fire eaters, contortionists, and burlesque dancers. According to Helzapoppin’s website, “You don’t stop going to the circus when you get old, you get old when you stop going to the circus.” $18, begins immediately after concert, doors at 7pm, Scout Bar, 19314 281 N, (210) 494-7700, scoutbarsa.com, hellzapoppin.com.
