ROAR AT THE CARNIVAL

By: mainetoday.com

Carnival of Death

This Halloween Pete Witham & The Cozmik Zombies are joining forces with Dark Follies, Portland’s Award Winning gotherific vaudevillians to create a show, the likes of which has never before been seen. Fueled by the engine of the Dark Follies (not just) Rhythm Orchestra, Dark Follies consists of dancers, jugglers, side show acts, flow artists, fire dancers and more! Pete Witham & The Cozmik Zombies are a Rockabilly/Psychobilly act that plays blazing original roots music. Pete’s songs combine witty lyrics, theatrical delivery, and a heavy dose of chicken plucking stomp.

We’re combining our collective dark powers to bring you a truly twisted and dark Halloween. This is going to be a Hunter S. Thompson meets Edward Gorey style nightmare of beautifully horrific songs, sights, and sounds that will tweek your skulls and rock your brains! (mmmmm… brains). This is a must see event featuring a full musical integration of the Cozmik Zombies and Dark Follies (not just) Rhythm Orchestra as well as performances by the Dark Follies vaudevillians.

Step on up and join us on this Carousel of Darkness! Round and round, as the broken calliope wheezes out the busted melody of a circus of the dead. Gather with The Freaks and The Carnys, at the Carnival of Death, where we shall rage and roar into the void of the Witching Hour. This is going to be the show to see this Halloween!
