Saturday To-Do: Hellzapoppin'

HELLZAPOPPIN'
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10

One part Tod Browning, one part Tom Waits and a healthy dollop of Steve-O — that's Hellzapoppin', the world's largest (and likely most famed) sideshow revue. The traveling troupe of walking oddities is led by Zamora, The Torture King, a 20-year vet of the gross-out industry and "Ripley's"-featured master of mind-over-matter known for sending kebab-like skewers through his arms, face and chest, not to mention supporting his entire body weight on the tip of a sword. He's joined by contortionist Viola LaLa Mia, emcee, song and dance man Bryce "The Govna" Graves and Chelsea NoPants, who — gentlemen, gird your loins — can swallow a pool stick. Local songstress Jessica Carder and metal overlords Iron Tongue open the show.
