I love that Zehara Nachash calls herself "Boston's resident snake charmer" — as if there's competition for the title — and I love that she's culled together a motley crew of circus performers, belly dancers, illusionists, and their ilk to perform at this Friday's Odditorium in Cambridge.
The Boston Babydolls, Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band, and Oddville Vaudeville are all on the bill. Peter Tino (aka "The Human Floor") will also endure pointy stilettos and the weight of several people on his body. According to his MySpace page, he once welcomed a woman weighing over 400 pounds to stand on his face, covering both his nose and mouth. Um, ouch.
It's $15, 18+, and happening from 8-10:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. You're invited to get your freak on. (Sorry, we couldn't resist.)
