Astounding stunts and freaky feats took place inside The Rebel Lounge on Tuesday, August 9, when the Tinderbox Circus Sideshow paid a visit to the venue. The Kentucky-based touring performance troupe, which includes members Captain Darron von Awesome and Trashique, served up both shock and awe as they unleashed eye-popping stunts involving nails, mousetraps, broken glass, and bowling balls.
