- "The Grindhouse Marionettes are a group of bell cow puppets. More accurately, humans puppeteer other humans from above as they jerkily perform short vignettes reminiscent of dark classics from the Brothers Grimm or Edward Gorey - gruesome parables with a parade of flawed heroes and scoundrels.
The Grindhouse Marionettes call themselves a vaudevillian troupe; nicely summarizing their pretense of unpretentious entertainment. Forged amongst the anarchy of the Dresden Dolls Brigade performers, The Grindhouse Marionettes starred as side stage performances at Avalon and the Paradise Rock Club. Noted for their talents of constructing props and destructive subject matter, their raunchy comic genius captivated audiences."
