Bacon Shoe walks the very fine line between parody and insult. (And the group does it in costume, too, including a pair of -- well, never mind.) This weirdo troupe is among the most absurd local acts ever to hit a stage. The art-performance hip-hop trio -- composed of an MC, who waxes unpoetic about sex, and two cohorts revealed to the public only as "Hype Man" and "Mr. Ruggles" -- brings a show that pushes boundaries and buttons.
You've heard of the impromptu fits of streetside rapping from the back of a truck and the outfits that involve light-up hats and fuzzy, bearlike heads.
