You may or may not have heard about the merging of the Palace of Wonders and the Red & Black into one new venue.
It is the a sad heart that I bid adieu to my sideshow freak home, filled with oddities and eclectic collections.
They say that the burlesque and sideshow will still get a chance to perform at the new Red Palace. but based on the news articles I’m reading, there is little mention of it. I know the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow will be doing one show at the new space in October (the 21st), so we will see what happens then.
so, really, what this means to you…come out this week for the final two shows at the great and wonderful, world’s ONLY sideshow bar, the Palace of Wonders. Let the freaks and geeks know how much you appreciate their unique and unusual entertainment.
Wednesday is the big GRAND FINALE BASH.
the American sideshow historian himself, author of Shocked & Amazed: On and Off the Midway, the dapper and darling James Taylor will be at The Palace Of Wonders Final hoorah Grand Bash this Wednesday! AND UkeCordionPocalypse will be playing a tribute song, written JUST FOR THE PALACE! come out and say good-by to our favorite sideshow bar.
Our Grand Finale will be a chance to say adieu to the current Palace of Wonders. We are bidding farewell with great acts and memories! Sideshow, Comedy, Dance, Burlesque,and more! Post show with Dj Mellie Mel
