This 13-member mobile cabaret performs to the `cartoon Gypsy music' of the Golden Wings of Glory. Founder Cotton, who authored the 2003 bestseller "Hobo: A Young Man's Thoughts on Trains and Tramping in America," will be on hand to bring the whole thing together.

Among the acts on tour in 2005: Bone Daddy, Black and Blue Burlesque, Rick Rainbow, Hellvis, the Twelve Toed Man and Tobias, a sword swallower and "human fountain."

Tickets are $8. The showtime is 8:30 p.m.
