This Way to the Egress + Members of Freaksheaux to Geaux!
This Way to the Egress is a musical machine, running on a tank of piss and vinegar, and comprised of an unholy union of characters so varied that to tell the story of Egress is like telling the story of Shiva's dance of creation and destruction before and after each cosmic cycle. But varied as the cast may be, two unifying goals remain: to present a sound not only true to its Vaudeville roots, but also not shy about pushing boundaries and evolving as a band and musical family; AND of course, to exorcise the demons of all that witness us.
Habitual pilgrims of the roadand with a home base of Bethlehem, PAThis Way to the Egress puts on a show that sounds and looks just as at home on an Opera House stage as it does on a New Orleans street corner. Sowed in the fertile soil of dirty little secrets, crushed childhood dreams, addiction, despair, jubilation, and of course debauchery, its this way to their story..
From deep in the humid and lurid swampland known as New Orleans comes a vaudeville show of a dark and lascivious nature - Freaksheaux to Geaux. A delicious gumbo of music, circus, sideshow, burlesque, and more, the Freaksheaux will bring you back to the traveling shows of yore, with a Southern Gothic twist and some modern flavor. It's no surprise that they regularly lure some of the best and the brightest in the vaudeville revival down to the Crescent City for good times and bad behavior. Come out and see what some have traveled thousands of miles to be a part of....
