Something Strange: a Music and Burlesque Tribute to THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
OBERON Shows
November 30 & December 1, 2017 at 8PM & December 2 at 1PM
Something Strange
Sickert looks, plays, acts and writes like Dr. John on steroids while his mischievous melodies suggest the Kinks going to darker places than Ray Davies inhabits.
Ed Siegel, WBUR
A live music and burlesque tribute to The Nightmare Before Christmas by Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys
 
Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?
Walter’s the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red
Army of Toys hiding under yours stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair
In this town, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise
 
Though Something Strange is not specifically a children's show, audience members under 18 are welcome as long they are with a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult. The 12/2 matinee performance will have generally brighter lighting in the audience area and a lower sound profile.
 

[Walter Sickert's] sprawling eight-piece band incorporates a host of influences, and descriptions of its style tend to include fistfuls of hyphens. More
