‘tinydangerousfun’ – April 2014 @ Branded Saloon – Brooklyn

tiny – dangerous – fun

These are the ‘ingredients’ that go into making this monthly variety show so wonderful.

Lots of wild acts and a ‘basement show’ feeling. What can they do next? LOL

This month was a blast! The word ‘variety’ certainly was appropriate for the acts that appeared in April and of course it was APRIL FOOLS DAY!
