The Accidental Rhino Trio will be performing in both Seattle shows of the Poetry Brothel Masquerade Tour. This evening’s cabaret takes place in the Jewelbox Theater (located in the Rendezvous Restaurant in downtown Seattle). There’s a 7:00pm and a 10:00pm show. Doors open at 6:30pm.
This iteration of Accidental Rhino features Andrew Hare on upright bass and vocals, Carey Rayburn on brushed snare, trumpet, and vocals, and of course, yours truly doing my friendly local neighborhood ukulele ace thing and vocals.
The Poetry Brothel is a unique poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. Based in concept on the fin de siècle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, many of which functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists. It is an immersive cabaret, offering a full bar, live jazz, burlesque dancers, painters, and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.
Themed costumes and/or formalwear are encouraged but not required.
