Doors open: 8:00 pm
Entry: R18

Many people never thought it would happen again and still more never knew about it in the first place (no respect for the history of the deep weird), but its 2016 and Lisa Crystal Carver is reviving her performance troupe SUCKDOG for its first stage show in decades. Late 80s and early 90s performances featured wrestling, music, antics, nudity and general perversity. Back in the day Lisa called these things Operas and I suppose that term fits as well as any other. In addition to all this dramatic splendor, Lisa wrote and created the greatest fanzine of all time (Rollerderby - you gotta get the collection) and has since written quite a few books (on writing, painting, Yoko Ono and other subjects). We are so overjoyed to have her and her company (daughter Sadie Carver and the Kuzak Sisters) here to perform for you. Has time softened Lisa Will she roll around on the floor bleeding and naked Or will it be your mind crawling around down there amidst the filth, yearning to break free

**PROUDLY PRESENTED BY DERO ARCADE**
