Magic Burlesk and Sideshow April 24
This event made the Dallas Observer's top things to do : Go Here
Confetti Eddie & Trigg Watson MAGIC. Not Johnson. Just magic. See modern day spectacles from Dallas' own Confetti Eddie and Trigg Watson. At 10 p.m. Friday Confetti Eddie invites you into his personal studio, 823 Exposition Ave., where illusions will be performed, Lyric Laveau will sing and special guest star Sweet T will burlesque her tatas off. Also featured in the show? Jai Le Bait, the one and only sideshow performer. Duh. And before the show even begins, you'll receive a tour through the studio where you'll learn the history of magic, including that one ill-fated day when Criss Angel became famous and almost ruined it for everyone. At Confetti's request, space will be limited to 50 people to create a cozy, parlor atmosphere. Even though this sounds like the setup of the movie Clue, we assure you it's not. Light snacks and poison-free drinks will be provided as well as a brief intermission. The show is 90 minutes long and tickets are available for $20-$30 at prekindle.com. -Nikki Lott
Currently residing in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Dallas, TX, the Oak Cliff born visual artist Edward Ruiz couples his current artistic interests in digital video mapping and real time sound analysis to seamlessly marry geometric sculpture, music, and mathematic technology as a means to create all encompassing sensory installations of sight, movement, and sound. Along with these artistic endeavors, Ruiz rounds out his repertoire with the mediums of resin cast sculpture, acrylic paintings, and character-driven toy-making.
