Freakshow-a-Go-Go one night only

The Gender Fluids featuring former Sissyboy members

In the spirit of not only reclamation of derogatory terms but also of fun, frolicking, and the eternal irreverence of adding a-go-go to the end of everything, this Saturday’s Freakshow-a-Go-Go is a truly queer Portland performance piece.

However, this stage extravaganza, followed by the quintessential drama and energy fueled dance party, features freaky acts from around the country at our very own Hippodrome/Rotture (315 SE 3rd Ave). The Freakshow’s powerful combinations are best described by the Pants-off Productions crew:

This circus-themed vaudvillian genderbending performance combines sharp choreography, pop music, multi-media, elaborate costuming and props and features freaks of all varieties, including burly burlesquers, drag kings & queens, acro-balance artists, hula-hooping homos, tattooed and bearded ladies, creepy clowns, and many more!

And if that description isn’t enough to get your freak flag flying, you have only to recite the names of tongue-twisting acts including host Sossity Chiricuzio (host of Dirty Queer erotic open mic night) and continuing with this extensive list:

  • All of the Above
  • Beefcake Burlesque
  • Cattitude
  • The Gender Fluids
  • Gender Offenders
  • Kings n Things
  • KO&Co.
  • The Smarmy Chorus Girls
  • Thisway/Thatway
  • The Vagabonds

It’s time to dig deep into that closet and let your inner weirdo out, along with those clashing pirate, circus and 80s outfits. Wide eyes and dancing shoes are surely going to be a requirement for this experiment in bizarre debauchery. So research your hanky codes and get ready for a night of geek love and freak nasty PDX performance art. This is going to be anything but your lesbian grandma’s campfire Kum-Ba-Yah.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Doors at at 7 PM with 8 – 10 PM show and 10 PM – 2:30 AM after-show Dance Party with DJs Mr. Charming & Kinetic.
