The Revolution Circus is a collective and a theme night all wrapped up in an event that features a caravan/troupe of musicians & performers. Expect a line-up of bands, DJs, freak-shows & dancers plus a merchandise village.No two nights are entirely the same. The core of the traveling show incorporate local/regional and other nationals from comedy, horror, electronics, punk, glam, folk , occasionally metal to sexy grungy blues and naughty black lace rock & roll. Almost anything goes.
Depending on the night you attend we will deliver an ultra condensed
75-100 minute cacophony that includes material from all of us
and some combined mutations. There is even a full blown three hour show that can be delivered as well as an unplugged more family friendly version of our event.
The Revolution Circus began in Washington DC under the banner of the nomadic goth-punk industrial hybrid band Apocalypse Theatre. A tattoo and brimstone graffiti and tribe with a penchant for fire & all things intense. They relocated to San Francisco and learned new skills working and playing for the Burning Man festival before planting a home-base in Minneapolis MN..
In recent times Apocalypse Theatre has become one part of a larger animal-The Revolution Circus and in 2012 the first small troupe began touring non-stop and now “La Caravana Revolucion is building energy as it rolls down interstate 35 (aptly retitled Underground 35) and forging a path east on I-90 (underground 90) and south-west through the desert.

One day in the not too distant future me & the tribe/collective/crew I am a part of will bring back the caravans to the American highways & landscapes . You will know we have arrived when the highways & byways bring us there & we plant our village of machines and freaks around a unique art & curiosity tent that flies a pirate flag and calls out to all those who have felt they do not belong and to all those who are our allies in a cause that does not wear its politics or its faith on its sleeve because we are of too many stripes but united we declare- We are everything.
You are us.
We are you.
Stand with us.
Rise with us.
Scream with us.
