Win Tickets to Beady Little Eyes' Puppet Slam!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Fri, Sep 21, 2012 at 9:44 AM

I admit that I attended my first "Puppet Slam" with some skepticism, but Katie McClenahan of puppet events company Beady Little Eyes organizes a hell of a good show. Each slam features a curated lineup of puppeteers; the show I saw a offered a great mix of sophisticated "real" puppets and clever hand-made stuff. The content was very vulgar and funny and smart, and the giant toad that hosted it was fucking hilarious.

And look:

A TINY TARDIS.

Tomorrow's "Best of the Best" Puppet Slam at Disjecta boasts New York-based "rock-n-roll ventriloquist" Carla Rhodes; there are two shows at 7 and 9:30 pm at Disjecta. Buy tickets here, or email me with "Beady Little Eyes" in the subject, and your name + which show you'd like to attend in the body, by 5 pm today for a chance to win. (I'll notify the winner by the end of the day today.)
