Ty Connor slashes cover
for his latest `Nightmare'
Some people dream big. Ty Connor nightmares big.
The Eugene performance artist and bartender returns to the stage Sunday at Sam Bond's Garage, 407 Blair Blvd., to host his annual end-of-summer variety show, `Ty Connor's Hot August Nightmare.'
"It will probably be like five or six bands of just people that have never performed before - and they probably never will again." Connor said.
The lineup so far, which Connor promises could get even worse, includes a punk-rock barbershop quartet, a band called Weapons of Mass Deconstruction and the Unbathed, which proudly wears the slogan, "We Stink."
Sunday's show starts at 9:30 p.m. The cover is $2.
"I was going to charge $5 at the door," he said. "But now, I'm only going to charge $2."
