ITEM: Tom Miller's Old/New Variety Show
WHEN: PREMIERES - Monday, Jan. 21 of 2013
WHERE: Club 1982
In light of the closing of The Lab, where the "Tom Miller Winter/Summer Unspectacular en Espanol/American Sign Language" was held, Mr. Miller has been hard at work on his newest show-incarnation which will premiere in January of 2013.
"THE REVEREND ANGELDUST'S TABERNACLE OF HEDONISM WITH YOUR HOST, TOM MILLER" will begin it's run at Club 1982 on Monday, January 21, 2013. The show will run consecutive Mondays. Doors open at 9pm, and cover is $3. Mr. Miller will be holding a press conference where he, the Reverend Angeldust, and the 'Secret Council of Society Deacons' will become official Ordained Ministers under the umbrella of the Universal Life Church. (You can do this online now, and it's free). Effectively, this will establish the Reverend Angeldust's Tabernacle of Hedonism as Gainesville's newest OFFICIAL LEGALLY RECOGNIZED church. Funds will be raised during shows to help worthy causes, artists, and raise money for Gin Martinis for the Church's elite membership. Memberships to the Tabernacle of Hedonism will also be available.
Says Tom Miller, "The show will be like a Church collided with a morning Children's Television Show. There will be puppets, bands, all manner of performing artists, and independent videos. And we'll be giving communion for select members of the church, but I can't tell you what is in the wafers, or the wine bottle."

Synopsis: The Bride of Gootis, shot in the head by The Gimp, gives birth to a genetically mutated creature that resembles a cross between a sea-monkey and a walrus. The creature heads out to the waters of the river to find it's way. It meets many characters including the 'fookin' loon', three versions of President Lincoln, and the Lady Pearl. After five years on the street as a mutant prostitute, it raises enough money for a cab to return to the crack house of its birth. And then...
Tom Miller: "This movie is about impermanence and the suffering of the Buddha. It is an apocalyptic message of hope."
