Seduction Sideshow (the name says it all)

Performance troupe Seduction Sideshow which (according to its MySpace page) “incorporates burlesque, circus sideshow and vaudeville to produce a menagerie of mind blowing acts,” will present the Corney Island Carnival Sideshow Extravaganza on Saturday, March 20.

Watch the video, below, of the 2009 Seduction Sideshow performance The Origin of Tantra (NSFW):

Press for the event says, “Our show will draw on Old-school Sideshows including: Siamese twins, Feral Wolf Girl, Coin operated boy and sexy roustabouts and much much more with a tasty amount of sexy tease.” It’s a classic Sideshow remade with a modern Coney Island twist. Plus fortune tellers, puppets and a cabinet of curiosities.

Opening acts include everybody’s favorite mermaid, Britta Filter, and This way to the Egress, an electro-acoustic act from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, performs.

Club 828 (64 Carter St., Asheville, 252-2001). 9 p.m., $12 advance at Club 828 online / $15 at the door.
