Thursday, September 6th:
Puppet September featuring the Shadow Circus Creature Theatre!!!
Okay, remember those happy little puppet shows at your sixth birthday
party, with the happy little elves and maybe dancing girls and princesses
and all that? And good old Mr. Punch, in his white suit and pointy hat,
laughing, with his club, beating the hell out of the police officer and
then killing Judy and the baby for good measure? The inhuman shriek and
crackle of his voice coming from the puppeteer?s swazzled tongue, the
stark, raving terror in the faces of the children, the cruel laughter of
the adults as they sprinkled the arsenic over the sugar donuts, the
convulsions that followed. . .ah yes, those were the days. . .
Come relive that bastardized childish innocence during PUPPET SEPTEMBER at
the Odeon Bar! You were a sick and wrong child and you know it, so come
see the delightful creations from some of the most extraordinary puppeteers
from far and wide!
This week, we have the Shadow Circus Creature Theatre, from right here in
SF, spinning tales and slinging characters guaranteed to keep your
attention off the booze for a little while. These fellows have some of
the most macabre and delightful puppets I?ve ever seen, and are funny and
technically precise at the same time. ?What?? You say, something at the
Odeon that is technically precise? Yes, folks, it?s true, and it?s good for
you, so come on down and see what I?m talking about.
Friday, September 7th
The Neurohumours, with an Eric McFadden Buffer
Presenting this Friday Evening, the Neurohumours, a delectable blend of
synth pop lounge etc, only much, much better than you think it is. An
actual band in the age of knob twiddling, let them wow you with their own
blend of cortex tingling aural function.
And with the Neurohumours, Eric McFadden, playing before and after. A
guitarist who rates a solid 10 on the Chicken John Technical Scale, this
fellow is way more than well worth the time and effort it takes to not get
up and leave.
****Additionally, and also tonight!!******
Dioxene Happy Hour. Relive those week-old burning man memories like they
happened ten years ago.
Also, this is the ONLY time that yes, there is such a thing as a free
lunch. And From Chicken John, no less. This week we will be having White
Trash Vegan Chili, White Trash Meat Chili, White Trash Cornbread, and a
White Trash DJ, otherwise known as Jericho Reese?s Dead Man Records Show.
Free food, Free DJ and no cover. Come have a happy hour on Chicken
Saturday, September 8th
Combustible Odeon: Amateur Fire Performer Nite w/ DJ Shel from NYC
Fire eating, fire breathing, fire blowing, fire tweaking, fire wading, fire
swimming, fire putting outing, fire extinguisher juggling, fire walking and
eating cherry pie at the same time, firing squads, firing pins, and firing
from jobs if anything at all goes wrong with anything.
We will have the entire audience eating and doing other things with fire.
Ohh won?t this be fun.
DJ Shel is from the mean streets of NYC where she owns a record store and
has a fucking golf course in her house. 18 fucking holes. She went to
Burning Bullshit and while out here is going to spin just fer U. You?ll
like her, she?s fun. Dancehall, downbeat and all those other ambiguous
titles that people punch Chicken when he says ?It?s all rap to me??
However much, if we even bother charging.
Sunday September 9th:
The Visceral Variety Show
This here Sunday night show caters to the circus side of things,
occasionally lapsing into stand up with a few heavy gusts of vaudeville in
between. Structure is not our forte. Sometimes there is spoken world
performed by a magician. Sometimes a spoken word artist does a card trick,
and sometimes we just sit and heckle movies all night. See people
humiliated willingly by Chief Insultant Chicken. Grab a drink from the
last of the side-show swamis. Thrills, Chills, Spills, excitement,
adventure, and really wild things, every Sunday without fail unless we do,
at the Odeon Bar.
FREE. No, really.
Monday September 10th:
Self Service DJ Nite
Self Service Gas, Self Service Checking, Self Service buffet, Self Service
DJ. Bring your own music, spin for your big big night and train to be a
professional DJ, or just look like one!
Tuesday September 11th:
Burning Man Reevaluation
Jim Mason and Chicken John, Head to Head to see who has the bigger di?is
the artistic alpha male. See who, in fact, has succeeded in creating an
art project that has sincerely touched each and every person at the Burning
Man this year. Videos, oral reports, juvenile sniping, spitballs, it?s
all here. In the case of a tie I reserve the right to make them wrestle in
lime jello. Have kiddie pool, will travel.
Settle this bet in your own head, and get backgrousn info:
Last Week?s featured artist(s): DPW, still living off other people?s
castoffs and directing traffic into Gerlach.
This Week: Jim Mason, chump.
All Nite Long
Wednesday August 29th:
The Second Coming of Dr Hal
You write down the questions, Chicken John interprets them, Dr. Hal
answers them. Have another Sapphire and tonic.
Accompanied trilaterally and with music by DJ Otto and his esteemed
So very free
