The world-renowned Low-Brow Road Show is putting on their 3rd annual Voodoo Ball in their own backyard with an early show on Friday, Feb 27th (7pm doors, 8pm show). Behold as Big John Bates & The Voodoo Dollz transform the Bourbon into a blues-infused cabaret, complete with sexy burlesque, bands and much more! Wild costumes are encouraged, and prizes will be awarded to the most outrageous!

BIG JOHN BATES & The VOODOO DOLLZ are throwing a scorching hotrod burlesque rock 'n' roll blues party full of non-stop voodoo action with the help of upright bass spanker sCare-oline and the Voodoo Dollz dancers! Touring North America and Europe over the past year in support of their latest CD "Take Your Medicine", BJB and the Dollz just brought their "Carn-Evil and Sexy Side Show" to a sold out crowd at Whistler for New Year's Eve, as well as entertaining 4000 enthusiastic converts at the Northern Alberta Country Fair. Armed with their usual bag full of tricks as well as burlesque performers recruited from Sweet Soul, Cross'd Lovers and the Starlet Harlots all wrapped up and presented to you by Vancouver's reigning voodoo queen, Little Miss Risk, get ready to drink, dance and party! http://www.bigjohnbates.com . http://www.voodoodollz.com

Storytelling lyrics sung with fiery urgency blur the lines between contemporary songs and traditional tunes, possessing all the confidence and muscle of a seasoned outfit in the prime of their career. Imagine Rancid had their tour bus hijacked by a group of inebriated gypsies and you're beginning to understand... be sure to come out and catch these young up-and-comers who opened for The Real McKenzies! http://www.myspace.com/vancitydreadnoughts
