** MUSIC! SKETCH COMEDY! CHAOS! THUMBWRESTLING! ** Just take the A•C•E or 1•2•3 to Chambers St. and it's right around the corner below an Irish pub named Biddy Early's. Since we're raising the stakes with an actual venue, a $5 door charge has been added, but this show has a money-back guarantee backed by the full faith and credit of the BZIC. ** STARING CONTESTS! BEARDED LADY-MAN PAIN! BLASPHEMY! ** We're kicking off 2011 with some of the all-stars from last season and a few new faces, too! So come out and join me a year to the day (almost) after the very first Carnivale debuted! We'll be crowning the random royalty at the top of the show, and Feats of Strength scattered throughout the evening. NEW this season will be raffle drawings throughout the evening and an open mic/jam that will kick off immediately after the final musical act! ** SATAN HIMSELF! BOOZE! BADASSERY! ** Without further ado, the BZ Bill for Episode 201... "It's gonna be the best one yet!" Johnny Pacia & the D Train Riders http://thedtrainriders.com/ Johnny Pacia's music hails from some joint frozen in the time ---when rock ruled and lyrics were key, where meetings took place on hardwood floors over bourbon and tobacco. Mixing vintage rock sounds with textures of folk and psychedelic blues. Michael Duncan of Rockedition.com calls the D Train Riders "Visionary blues-rockers," whose songs, "Illustrate intimate accounts of friendship, death, and heartbreak."

"Up and comer Pat Hull not only possesses a golden voice, but a songwriting knack that should carry him far. Pat and his two bandmates put on a winning show for us in the KOOP studio and also granted the lucky folks at Momo's that same night the right to say "I saw him when..."
