Have you ever thought about running away with the circus? Feel like getting out and leaving your inhibitions at home? This Friday evening — at least for a few hours — you can wear your clown or acrobat costume, bring your juggling paraphernalia and join Gandalf Murphy & the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, as they perform at Outpost in the Burbs in Montclair, 8 p.m..
Since the Sleepy Hollow, NY-based band exploded on the Hudson Valley music scene in 1998, with their self-produced debut release, “A Good Thief Tips His Hat,” the quirky group has been captivating audiences with their “Hillbilly-Floyd, folk-pop,” “alt-country roots-rock,” and “surreal Americana.”
From what we can tell, the mythical Slambovia is more of a music-induced state of mind than a physical space. According to Michael Dalessio, a long time fan who seems to be a sort of Slambovian ambassador, and is traveling from upstate, NY to Baristaville for the show, “audience members laugh, sing along, howl, hoot, and even yodel, eventually reaching an altered state, where all present are then mysteriously transformed into Slambovites!”
