Which brings us to our next point: Why is a fetish party so much more entertaining than a bomb-exploding, bridge-collapsing blockbuster flick? Some of the specials are wonderful clichés: young, attractive women in naughty-schoolgirl type ensembles shaking their half-bare asses and spanking one another. But also, there will be visual spectacles galore: fetish performances and go-go dancing by Electrick Pixies, featuring Stacy Rojas and Geraldy October. Trinkette the Clown will host a midnight freak show. Gennaro and Julie of Righteous Ink Tattoo will put on a piercing show. Mistresz Diabolicka will have her Wheel of Torture & Fortune handy. Web Three will perform. And to top it all off, a Dark Carniville pie-throwing booth will have ya chucking pies. It is said you will have the opportunity to sling a pie at the face of the king of Electrolust himself, Josepher Ringleader. Circus starts at 9 p.m. at Downtown 28 (1828 Harrison St., Hollywood).
