Coney Island Rock n'Roll Roadshow Rolls into The Rook by Ryan Smith

Attention, adventurous ladies and gentlemen: You’re not gonna want to miss this one – and you’d best leave the kids at home.

In short, here’s how the Coney Island Rock n’ Roll Roadshow describes itself: “A traveling show made up of beautiful burlesque babes, sideshow stunts and shenanigans, and amazing musical acts ranging from gritty bar room rock ‘n’ roll to gypsy-honky-tonk, lo-fi trash rock and one-man-bands, all wrapped up into one hell of a party.”

That party’s making a dirty-fun, boardwalk-ey spectacle out of the King’s Rook Club’s downstairs concert complex on Thursday, Feb. 26, and everyone’s invited – except the kids, of course.

The Roadshow has a current core lineup that includes, but isn’t nearly limited to, the local favorites Jesse Ray Carter Trio, Potwhole, and lots of other musical acts; The Cut-Throat Freakshow featuring Cut Throat and Candy Pants; pinup/alt-model Bad-Ass Burly Q; and emcee/DJ/‘weirdo wrangler’ Daddy Stitches.

From the sounds of it, the Roadshow’s done up with all the razzle-dazzle the “Coney Island” part of its name would suggest.

Sounds like some good, freaky fun alright. – Ryan Smith
