Has the calm before the edible storm that is Thanksgiving got you down in the dumps? Revolution Circus, a huge compendium of bands, freaks, sideshow acts, burlesque girls, body painters, acrobats, tatto artists, belly dancers, hoopers and other circusy things will take over City Hall for a many-leveled, single night of wild abandon that might just turn your mood around. Sometimes, it's good to get weird.
