As a shadow falls over the city, and lamplighters ply their trade, we believe that it must time again for the 4th Annual Voodoo Ball held Feb.5th at the Rickshaw Theatre where we shall hold you in the musical thrall of our scientific romance! Descend with us into Bangtown where, against the art deco ruins, moans the punk-blues of Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dollz. On this crazed tour of the back alleys ladies of the night walk in the day, Erte meets Alice Cooper, you may fall in to a time machine or be seduced by Victorian gargoyles. Add deadly, neo-burlesque fusions and retina-burning numbers and this you will want to check your life insurance policy before attending!

To start their new year off with a bang, Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dollz are using their magic to entice you to their party of ill repute, the Voodoo Ball! With percussive hitmen Vancouver's Swarm and, fresh from the darkest forest, Victoria's Hank And Lily as musical guests, we will also experience I, Braineater's "Lord Jim King Cum & the Powder Monkeys". And, to grind your gears, pulp-gaslight burlesque with Burgundy Brixx, Cherry Ontop, Lola Frost, The Purrfessor plus some surprising special guests! Visuals presented to you by the esteemed Paul Hendriks and joined by the musical harmonium master, DJ Teddy Smooth!

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 the Voodoo Dollz Burlesque dancers! Touring North America and Europe over the past year in support of their latest CD "Take Your Medicine", BJB and the Dollz recently brought their "Carn-Evil and Sexy Side Show" to crowds of 10,000+ at festivals in Germany and hundreds of sold-out shows across North America. They're armed with a new bag full of tricks as well as burlesque performers recruited from Sweet Soul, Cross'd Lovers and Kitty Nights, all wrapped up and presented to you by Vancouver's reigning voodoo queen, Little Miss Risk. Get ready to drink, dance and party! .
