tear-jerkers rock & roll vaudeville americana

Curtis Eller American Circus

£15/£12(c) • Friends £13/£10(c) • On the day £18

Tonight, this tantalising, unsettling and energetic troupe offer us a smorgasbord of glittery show tunes, sentimental tear-jerkers and rock & roll rave-ups whose lyrics are populated with two-bit prize fighters, Hollywood has-beens, lapsed gospel singers and forgotten pop stars. Sounds punchy! Make sure not to miss the glorious, bizarre wonder of Curtis Eller and his American Circus for an unforgettable night of vaudevillian spectacle and damn-fine toons.

folk-noir gypsy jazz sea shanty theatrical

The Eskies

£12/£9(c) • Friends £10/£8(c) • On the day £15

The Eskies are purveyors of folk-noir music that meanders from a sea-soaked waltz to an Italian tarantella, lamenting its way from a brassy funeral march to a weep-along Klezmer knees-up and percussing from a chain-gang holler to ragtime finger-snap. The band has brought this distinctive blend of folk noir/gypsy-jazz/sea-shanty (always with with a swaggering stage spectacle) to ballrooms and booze-houses far-and-wide, inspiring much toe-tapping and some cray-zee dance moves from the audience. Don’t miss the inimitable Eskies for their sweltering summer evening gig at the Prema jook-joint!
