8:30pm to 11:30pm $8. The Crack Rock Opera, Room Full of Strangers, The Welzeins, Twigs. Will's Pub, 1042 N Mills Ave, Orlando, Florida. What is The Crack Rock Opera and who the devil is Danny Feedback? Danny Feedback is a rock n roll freak infamously known for lewd, lascivious stage antics and performance art rife with destruction of such objects as 800lb pianos while frequently in the nude. His music and lyrics are a blend of experimental garage and psych-pop, bristling with dissonance and fuzz; catchy yet jarring and always irreverent. As for The Crack Rock Opera it is Danny Feedback's foray into theater, which is more like if an early John Waters had he formed a band. The media has described The Crack Rock Opera as "Rocky Horror, but With Better Music".And despite being reviled by theater critics Feedback and his troupe The Crack Rock Opera have graced the front page of The Orlando Weekly, performed a full run at The Orlando International Fringe and performed well attended shows at various theaters in Central Florida...Now, Saturday January 31st The Crack Rock Opera celebrates the release of their self titled LP which they will perform at length.This album harkens back to the trippy story albums similar to The Firesign Theater that made their debut in the tumultuous late 60s. However, the CRO is much more potty mouthed, anti-PC, and irreverent in a ham fisted back hand sort of way and no social, ethnic or religious class is spared. Januray 31st The Crack Rock Opera brings it back to the gritty dives from whence they came, namely Will's. All attendees will receive a limited copy of The Crack Rock Opera w/ carton character inserts.
