PARROT IN THE TANK
Meet the last ones standing in a block of deadbeats, floozies, mermaids and Michael Bolton impersonators, as Parrot in the Tank invite you to join them on a late night trip to the dead-end of nowhere. Leave your morals and the door and prepare for the worst, because noone likes Michael Bolton anymore. With cinematic design, surreal humour, film noir, live music and tigers. www.parrotinthetank.com
