Variety Freakshow


What's got an incalculable number of thumbs and loves freakshows? Us guys! We would happily trade a month's worth of shoe-gazing college rock and amateur cowboys for one night of glass-eating, fire-breathing fun. We're so into the idea of seeing Sideshow Bennie nail a screwdriver through his nose and watching the Enigma (of X-Files/Lollapalooza fame) do his enigmatic puzzle-piece tattoo schtick, that we're willing to risk being gutted by ravenous Hillbilly Casino fans. The fans declared a fatwa on us for a minor dust up on our Nashville Cream blog, but as far as we're concerned that's just water under the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge—we all love watching grown men lift weights with their pierced nipples, right?
