Lump’N’Loaf Records, in association with A Halo Called and C.O.G.S. , once again is proud to present the Freaky Mutant Weirdo Variety Show 2018 (FMWVS), a unique charity event for Elijah’s Promise, Central Jersey’s largest anti-hunger agency, to be held on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse in Dunellen, NJ.
The Freaky Mutant Weirdo Variety Show is a non-stop four-hour extravaganza of music, performance, and mashups by multiple offbeat acts, hosted by L’N’L’s legendary geek psychopop combo A Halo Called Fred. For the second year, poet and musician John S. Hall from King Missile (famed for “Detachable Penis”) is the featured guest. Other acts range from surf-prog band Trio of Madness, raccoon furry pop by I’ve Made Too Much Pasta, and belly dancing, freak sideshows, and special vocal and piano performances.
A Halo Called Fred’s Geverend, aka Adam Dickinson, the man behind the show explains, “With this year’s show, we’re trying to elevate it to the next level — instead of focusing on one act at a time doing their own thing, we wanted a show that focused on community, collaboration, and making the best entertainment experience we could for the audience”
