Prof. Pinkerton presents “Yesterday Is Here” — a live music circus tribute show to Tom Waits in celebration of the 30th anniversary of his album "Franks Wild Years". Featuring original arrangements and story line inspired by his compelling characters and dreamlike lyrical themes.  Pinkerton co-produces this event with old performer colleague and friend, Erin Garber-Pearson of Birds Eye View Circus.  Birds Eye View Circus is a local Toledo circus school and performance company founded by Ms. Garber-Pearson in 2012.

About Dead Man’s Carnival:

Dead Man's Carnival is a Milwaukee based Live music variety show. The show Combines our love for turn of the century Vaudeville with the uncompromising passion of the Do-it-yourself underground art community. Acting as more than just an evening of entertainment, we create a time and place for unusual displays that would otherwise have no place to bloom. The show is presented in a format that emphasizes crowd interaction, improvisation, and inner group collaboration. With a cast of performers from all over the country we are writing the next chapter in Wisconsin's long Circus legacy.
