Calling all aerial artists, wire-walkers, and oddball performers of every variety, the famously bizarre Bindlestiff Family Cirkus is putting out a call for entertainers to perform in their Bindlestiff Open Stage Variety Hour. This brand-new series will run the first Monday of every month throughout the year and will feature new works by both emerging artists and professionals. Ringmaster Keith “Bindlestiff” Nelson hosts the show, at which you should expect to see everything from trained rats to stripping clowns to heavy-metal magicians. It might just make Mondays more bearable.
