Accordion! Mimes! Open gin bar! Can-can!

Come to Littlefield on July 16 for an afternoon of le French mayhem cooked up by the skint crew. Avec:

LES HOT SARDINES, playing their barn-burning, floor-mopping hot jazz, dixieland and French chanson (tap dancer included!)

CLOWNS ABOUT TOWN, self-described "professional party instigators" -- or as we call them, hot mimes!

THE LOVE SHOW burlesque, schooling you in French history -- with Marie Antoinette wigs and pasties!

MIRA STROIKA the wandering chanteuse, channeling Piaf with her squeezebox d'amour!

- and your M.C. NIC TAMÈRE, all the way from Toulouse and pissed at NYC's no-smoking laws!

Free Bulldog Gin cocktails 2-3pm, $5 afterwards

$3 Brooklyn Brewery Summer Ale and Lager all day

Tickets a very skinty $2! (or just $1 if you're a card-carrying member of The Total 4th Avenue Immersion, an all-day beer and food crawl. Details at brooklynbased.net.)
The Love Show
The Love Show is a theatrical dance company based in Brooklyn that combines cabaret, ballet, rock, comedy and theater into creative performances all over the US and beyond. The Love Show has entertained all audiences, rocking stages from Lebowskifest to The Public's Shakespeare in The Park. The Love Show was commissioned to perform original choreography for clients including Banksy, Veuve Clicquot, Bacardi, and Vogue Magazine. An active presence on the New York art scene, The Love Show was also awarded a week long residency with Chashama, and recently closed the seventh season of their very popular holiday show, Nutcracker: Rated R, which they also performed in Tokyo. The Love Show also has three other full length productions, Dance Mayhem: A Grindhouse Ballet, SEVERED: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein's Monster (premiered to a sold-out house at Highline Ballroom), and Boomstick Ballet: A Rock Opera tribute to Bruce Campbell (set to reopen October 2016). The Love Show has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, and TONY, and The New York Times sent a reporter to exclusively follow the troupe’s exploits on Bastille Day. The Love Show just returned from a trip performing on a resort in Egypt for a live and electronic music festival.
