Ron Jeremy’s 3 Ring Circus comes to town

By Tony Engelhart on January 31, 2008

When I was first asked to write about Ron Jeremy for the music section, I asked, “The porn star?” With the typical ’70s porn soundtrack thumping in my brain, I questioned, “Is he going to sing, dance, MC?"

Who knows. Maybe all three. Who knew he was more than a big, um … porn star.

Jeremy and his friends the Motley Crüe tribute band, Wildside, will headline Ron Jeremy’s 3 Ring Circus Wednesday at Club Vertigo. The advertisement in this fine rag states, “Bands, Comedy, Girls” as part of the night.

With special guests Basic Radio, Dead Poets and Atomic Outlaws and chicks, don’t forget the chicks, the night is sure to be sinfully satisfying.

[Club Vertigo, Wednesday, Feb. 6, 9 p.m., $15, 5240 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma, 253.678.3593]

Editor note: Concert promoter Joey G and Club Vertigo have canceled Wildside due to th eband's misrepresentation.  Here is Joey G's post on MySpace:

The band scheduled to play Wildside misrepresented themself as #1Motley

Crue tribute band, Wildside, They are a different band out of Isanti, MN

(terrible musicians) The truth of our dealings with this band is they

called lied and misrepresented themself and were canceled due to band

misrepresentation and are not a professional or a quality act.

So we have to protect our patrons from what we would call a waste of money

at our venue this is just our opinion, but judge for yourself if you hear

them it is almost painful. So the tribute band is bad mouthing our company

that books 100s of show up and down the west coast and Hawaii

ligitimate national acts such as, Sevendust, Powerman 5000, Alien Ant

Farm, Hed PE and hundreds of other original acts.

Sorry Wildside we would rather have Kareoke night before subjecting our

patrons to your band.
