The Flip Side

From 6:00PM to 7:30PM

Life is strange, and the people around us are even stranger. Sardonic, ironic, and even histrionic, these witty tunes are full of moronic characters and sophisticated lyrics that reveal the present state of our world—the good, the bad, and the funny. With songs like “I’m My Own Grandpa,” “The Ballad of Sigmund Freud,” “Still Gonna Die,” “Killed by a Coconut,” and others, this offbeat Cabaret pays tribute to some of the best comic songwriters of the 20th Century.

Location: 1265 1st Street Sarasota, FL 34236
