Bella Koshka host rock 'n' roll circus tonight
Bearded ladies, a marching band, stilt walkers, jugglers, hula-hoopers, and even a flying stuntman will walk (or soar, or tower) among guests in the lobby beforehand. Then, at the stroke of 8 p.m., there will be rock. Theatrical Los Angeles indie band Saint Motel will take the stage, as will local rockers Bella Koshka and First Communion Afterparty. In between music sets, Lili's Burlesque will entertain with their dancing ladies, as will Ned the Magnificent, a man who can do crazy things with a folding chair. Ian Rans from Drinking with Ian will play ringmaster, and a dance party with DJ Dig Dug follows the show. Carnival dress is strongly encouraged, so whip out that lion tamer outfit you have in the back of your closet. --Jessica ArmbrusterThe Rock 'n' Roll Circus with Bella Koshka, First Communion Afterparty, and Saint Motel takes place tonight, October 16, at the Music Box. $10. 7 p.m. 1407 Nicollet Ave. S.
