Curtis Eller's American Circus

Sat 29 March 2014 // 20:00

Sat 29th March, 8pm. £8 advance

As his American Circus roll into town on the back of the powder keg that is their latest phonographic recording, 'How to Make It in Hollywood', Curtis' electrifying showmanship is complemented with his full band for the first time at The Cube.

Curtis Eller's American Circus is a brutish, inelegant rock & roll outfit. The new album is collection of glittery show tunes, sentimental tear-jerkers and jagged rock & roll rave-ups whose lyrics are populated by two-bit prize fighters, Hollywood has-beens, lapsed gospel singers and forgotten pop-stars. A lavish, Hollywood, dance sequence unfolding on the floor of a Chicago meatpacking plant in 1894.

A band of old time catgut pedlars, rosewood carvers and members of Boxcar Aldous Huxley and Snails, The Ninetree Stumblers will be barrelling down the hill to play fiddle tunes, rags, jugband blues and backwoods waltzes.
