Curse of Cassandra are the “electro-witch-dance” duo of Electra Complex (on vocals) and Asher Black (on keyboards and vocals). Their oneiric dance beats mix with haunting vocals to create trance-like states of cyber euphoria.
Mikey Mason is a comedy monster. A naughty cartoon character. An experiment gone wonderfully wrong. He explodes onstage with unfathomable energy, relentlessly pounding away at his audience with a wit as fast as his mouth, infectiously hilarious original songs, and his completely twisted world view. He’s the psycho stalker ex-boyfriend of comedy, except that you want to see him again. And again. And again.
The Pickled Brothers eat fire, juggle, swallow swords, crack whips, and lay on beds of nails. They’ve performed all over the world amazing and amusing kids and adults. You may have seen them on TV on The Tonight Show, Animal Planet, Guinness World Records, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Canada’s Breakfast TV, MTV, CMT, or even The Jerry Springer Show. They’ve also broken eight records between them!
