The punk rock–abilly, freak-filled dark carnival spectacular that is the Church of Freaks is more than your average concert experience. Stunt performers, magicians and strongmen rub shoulders with burlesque dancers such as the divine Mia Morte. Of course, there are bands, in this case Bloody Death Skull and Radioactive Chicken Heads. Admit it, the names alone have you intrigued. The former play ’60s girl group-inspired pop that features gloriously morbid lyrics. In a 2015 “L.A. Bands to Watch” feature, we described them as “like a children’s party band in a David Lynch film,” which just about covers it. Santa Ana’s Radioactive Chicken Heads, meanwhile, say that they’re “not your average band of poultry punks and giant mutant vegetables,” which begs the question, who is?
