Enigma.

ELECTRIC ACID THEATER
10 p.m., Juanita's. $10.

Gotta dig the name, since adding anything electric to anything acid is guaranteed to result in theater, like the last time I saw the Enigma. We discussed a variety of topics, such as the last time he spoke with Mom and how he engulfs himself in a torrential firestorm of sparks emitting from his trusty axe grinder. Born Paul Lawrence, the entirely tattooed performer, actor and musician has undergone extensive body modification, including horn implants, ear reshaping, multiple body piercings and a full-body jigsaw-puzzle tattoo. With his blindfolded partner Serana Rose, who'll drive a chainsaw through an apple clutched between his jaws, one of this century's most admired and truest-to-form sideshow masters will be accompanied by live instrumentation as he performs stunts like eating a lightbulb sandwich. Setting the mood with its own brand of stage show decadence are the Flameing Daeth Fearies, a costumed cast of gremlins certain to boost audience IQ levels with original numbers such as “Vagina is Amazing,” “Luke is Gay” and “French Bitch.”
