Went to see Cirque Berzerk last night. www.cirqueberzerk.com. And really had no idea what to expect. This is what I got.
Live music. Really good live music. The house band was a cross between Radiohead and Moby but with a more driving beat. With a lot of violin incorporated into the songs that sounded both eerie and cool.
Insane Dancing. I don't know much about dancing but I'll do my best to describe. Imagine the Russian Ballet combined with Michael Jackson's Thriller video featuring Sean Johnson (Summer Olympics, look it up).
Weird, Crazy Circus Sh#!. This is the part of the show that not only takes your breath away, it sort of freaks you out. There's fire, flying (lots of flying) and a trampoline act that was truly one of the coolest, choreographed stage acts I've ever seen.
Combine all these things together at once, and that's Cirque Berzerk.
But really, it's more than just the show. There's a second tent for drinking and partying before and after the actual show. In this tent you get live music, a full bar, old-school pin-ball games (????), food and clothing for sale and some pretty amazing people watching.
All in all a very good evening. It's around through July 5th and I really think people should go.
Here's some videos that some friends of mine at The Famous Group produced for the event.
