A Very Special Evening with The Incredible Drunkertons
by The Incredible Drunkertons
Friday, September 22 & Saturday, September 23 @ 8 PM
Sizzle and Funk first rose to fame as the child stars of the prime-time series The Incredible Drunkertons. Although their show was a mega-hit, they were unexpectedly canceled after five seasons and were legally barred from recording or performing publicly for 20 years. Now that the non-compete clause has expired and their protracted legal battle with the [redacted] network is behind them, they are ready to take their place at the top, once again! Sizzle and Funk draw on a variety of influences and musical genres, from pop, to r&b, to country, to rock and beyond. Audiences at the Flea can expect the signature The Incredible Drunkertons razzle dazzle in an intimate environment, granting unprecedented access to two of Las Vegas’ most treasured stars.

The Illustrious Blacks
Wednesday, September 27 & Friday, September 29 @ 8 PM
Once upon a time in a galaxy not far away, there lived two kings. Each was the ruler of his own deliciously glorious planet. The first king, Manchildblack, was well known throughout the cosmos for his ethereal vocals, celestial sonics and earthy musical messages. The other king, Monstah Black, was a star in the solar system for his gravity defying performances, gender bending fashions and spacey disposition. One magical night, an inexplicable ultra-magnetic pull forced the two planets to collide. A technicolored explosion occurred, turning night into day, with a feast of aural and visual delights. It was then that the universe was changed forever. Manchildblack and Monstah Black united and became The Illustrious Blacks!

Lulada Club
Thursday, September 28 & Saturday, September 30 @ 8 PM
