    20 Penny Circus (Orlando,FL)- In the grand tradition of vaudeville's sketchy back alleys, the 20 Penny Circus specializes in entertainment for those of questionable taste. A variety show for grown ups, it's full of strange feats, insane illusions, cunning stunts, and your favorite socially-inappropriate clowns. Acts include sword swallowing, instantaneous teleportation, ritualized mutilation, and others designed to test the limits of the human body, all backed with a soundtrack that is sure to rock faces. http://www.20pennyproductions.com/ Dr.Cirkustien(Charlotte,NC)- Maniacal, whimsical, sultry, and strange. A musical soundtrack to going insane. One minute a carnival, the next minute a grave. You'll dance and you'll thrash, you'll not know how to behave! Come see the show, come hear the sounds! Come get your kicks, Dr. Cirkustien throws down! http://drcirkustien.com/ The Bleeps(Charlotte,NC)- The Bleeps,are an enthusiastic and passionate new band formed from the small arts corner known as NoDa. http://thebleepsband.com/

Q: Was it weird when you guys abandoned your Amish upbringing to chase your dreams?

A: It was tough at first because most of our equipment requires electricity. And then the fact we all have different dreams, some of which involve being chased by evil creatures
