We are very pleased to welcome our friends from The Grand Artique, who will be hosting their (in)famous Trading Post at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on February 8th.
“To provide people with the necessary tools is good; to inspire them to put those tools to use is great.” -Boss Whispers
We are a trading company first and a bastion of freedom second. One part General Store one part wild west saloon, The Grand Artique provides customers with the unique experience of a fair trade for goods and services in a participatory atmosphere full of gritty characters where those looking to buy are welcome, but those willing to barter are kings.
From their storefront in Pacific Beach, C.A. the Dolan Brothers have mixed their unusual antics with their love of the old, forgotten and rusty artifacts of America. And now they bring their show on the road, offering to festivals and small towns everywhere a taste of the west like only The Grand Artique can provide.
The Grand Artique makes it first appearance at The Edwardian Ball, with its traveling caravan the Trading Post of the unusual, a gallery of schematics antics and rad habits. This will be the one stop shop to swap, barter, or trade for everything you forgot that they remembered you would. From batteries to eye wear, skulls to pocket watches, or geared sprockets and lockets just bring your silver and gold to wheel and side-deal your way to say, ” I made a trade with the Boss.” With their Mayor, W.C. Thornbush and their complete cast of characters from the Floosies to the preacher. The Grand Artique has put all their weight behind this endeavor. Filling booth evenings with the non-stop interactive entertainment, hilarious sketches, aimed to entertain you till the wee hours of the morning.
Paul Newman, aka SuperTallPaul, is a well proportioned enigma. His oddly intriguing appearance reflects a 6’6″ man with pigtails, a curly mustache, and outrageous clothing. He is a professional entertainer of the highest quality specializing in “one man band” style musical looping. He incorporates his soulful voice with ukelele, saxophone, flute, beatboxing, bass effects, & even the occasional nose whistle! Paul won the Boss National Looping competition and is renowned as one of the greatest musical loopers in the world. In addition to his incredible live music performance, he often incorporates many circus skills into his act including juggling, magic, face balancing, comedy, improv, & unicycle. For more than a decade Paul has shared his performance skills for large scale festivals around the world to include Coachella, Bonnaroo, Electric Picnic, Shambhala, and many others. Akin to artists like Reggie Watts and Beardyman, SuperTallPaul is a hybrid performer who combines theatrical, in the moment comedy and skill based artistry with funky, awe inspiring musical grooves. As a well versed street performer, Clown, and Improvisational Actor, he thrives on the spontaneous and even awkward moments that happen with an engaged audience. He creates a performance experience that has amazed and thrilled many diverse audiences around the globe.
Super Tall Paul is pleased to bring his Leisure Listening Lounge, a silent disco style lounge experience, to the Edwardian Ball. An experience that will blend modern day technology with turn of the century class and charm!
