This new Podcast is coming to YouTube and everywhere fine podcasts are found!
Scix brings weirdos aboard to discuss the power of weirdness, the challenges and fun of being a weirdo in our society. Weirdo in this case is a badge of honor! Anyone who is marginalized, outsider, artistic or dreaming can be called a weirdo, for any silly reason. Those of us who embrace the moniker tend to band together.
The first episode airs May 30 (2022) and features the Whistling Swans, a weirdo enby folk duo that’s won the hearts of the Gonzo Rising crowd!
SALT LAKE CITY — Over the past year or so, it feels like I’ve seen a million online performances. Scixxy’s Greater Shows’ Gonzo Rising: All-Weirdo Revue at the Alliance Theater is the first online performance that I truly wished I could have been in the live audience for—not because the livestream was bad, but because the live audience looked like so so so much fun. The show, available both in person and streaming on Twitch, is a series of variety acts performed by fantastic weirdo artists.

I am inclined to agree with every word of this glowing appraisal. It was (and is) an amazing performance by all involved, including the venue itself, Alliance Theater in Salt Lake City. The livestream turned out professional and fun, the show itself was one of our strongest to date, and the audience are all now fast fans.
Well done, Gonzo Rising family. Well done.
As I mentioned at the beginning, I really wish I could have seen this performance live, not only because it looked like such a great environment, but also because they mentioned that there were otter pops in the lobby afterwards.
