Starring the Living Dead Girlz; Goreriffic Zombie Dance Troupe from San Francisco! The Living Dead Girlz are technically “dance splatter theater,” incorporating complex choreography created to display a moral story within their shows. The LDG uses tongue n’ cheek attitude, specializing in commercial jazz, sock hop, cha cha, chairdancing, and tango/waltz. With a late night Strip for Pain: America’s Most Dangerous Gameshow with the girls of Burning Angel.com! Male contestants pit their libido against their pain threshold as they are subjugated by three vivacious dancers who "make with the stripping". As the contestants take more pain, the girls, beautiful strippers and adult film performers, take off their clothes. It's a wonderland for sadio-masochists as well as voyeurs!
Featuring Disgraceland Hook Squad – Flesh Hook Body Suspensions and Mayhem! The DHS crew is committed to presenting modern day flesh suspension in the rawest most primal way they possibly can. They are here to show the world that suspension isn’t strictly a form of enlightenment, but also a very real recreational way to have pure simple fun.
