Red Light District performs "Handcuff King" July 17 in Hollywood

Looks like Houdini is alive and well in Hollywood this month. Not only do we have Watson and the Dark Art of Harry Houdini selling out at the Sacred Fools, but now comes word that the band Red Light District will be doing a special Houdini-themed performance during their upcoming show at Caravan Palace at the Fonda in Hollywood on July 17 (which also happens to be a significant day in Houdini history).

Singer and songwriter Juliette Angeli informs me that the band will perform their song "Handcuff King" with magician and Magic Castle regular Micah Cover on stage doing a straitjacket escape timed with the music. Sounds fun.

Red Light District is a Los Angeles based band "with one foot in the future and one in a dark, smokey jazz-age cabaret." Songs are written by Juliette Angeli & Shok and performed live as a big band. You can learn more about them via their Facebook page.

  1. Thank you for writing about us, John! I just wanted to add that the name of the magician who will be joining us on stage is Micah Cover. He performs regularly at The Magic Castle.

    1. Ah, thank you, I was actually going to email you and ask you about that. I will add Micah to the post. Have a great show!
