A glimpse inside the Wonderground

October 17th, 2008 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General

It’s a club for magicians in a town that loves magic. It features new performers every week in a town that loves magic. And it serves as the perfect afterparty for a new magic show.

If you haven’t seen Jeff McBride’s Wonderground, you can get a glimpse online live, every Friday and Saturday at 10 p.m. Pacific, at www.streetofcards.tv. The Master of Masks is now the master of ceremonies for the unique club experience, which features all sorts of performance art, music and magic inside.

McBride talked to Dodd of Magic Newswire this week; the interview is featured in a podcast where McBride talks about the unique magic experience, including the magicians-only area, for which you have to show your “pass.”

Some of the early performances of Friday night’s live broadcast included Scott Hitchkock, Jordan Wright, Paul Draper, an incredible piece of closeup work from Jean-Pierre Kraft, rare closeup magic from stage magician Greg Gleason and an interview and great silent card routine from Bizarro. Even McBride and wife Abbi did a routine to a Kahlil Gibran poem. Awesome.
