Most people get dressed up for Halloween but burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese will be taking it off for a three night stand at Gramercy Theatre on Oct. 30 - Nov. 1. The show, titled "Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray" is being MC'd by Murray Hill and also features Dirty Martini, Catherine D'Lish, Selene Luna, Perle Noire and Monsieur Romeo. Tickets are on sale now.
If you're a Top Chef fan, you may have seen Dita (who turns 40 on Friday [9/28]) recently on Top Chef Masters where she turned host Curtis Stone into a giggling schoolboy and displayed serious food knowledge as well. You can watch that clip below.
Meanwhile, for all your burlesque needs, head to the Bell House for the 10th Annual New York Burlesque Festival starting tonight (9/27).
Fergus & Geronimo at BV-SXSW in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Happy New Year's Eve Eve! We've already given you a list of concerts and parties happening tomorrow and followed that with even more things to do. Some are already sold out (like 285 Kent and Glasslands). Some still have tickets (like Deer Tick). Here we are yet again with some more options.
Fergus & Geronimo are playing The Gutter (12/31) in Brooklyn with NT, My Teenage Stride, and The City Streets. Fergus will reportedly be "headlining at midnight" and "debuting tons of songs from their FUNKY new album." Brooklyn's NT are working on a new record and they've got a new song from it up for free download on bandcamp called "Reflection."
Superhuman Happiness are DJing at Union Pool (12/31) with DJ Partypants and visuals by BAMiAM.tv. As Superhuman Happiness point out on facebook, this is a DJ set and will be a very different show than their live set at Cake Shop TONIGHT (12/30). Tonight's post-Phish late show is a Dog Gone Blog presented show that features special guest Colin Stetson and DJ sets by Dog Gone Blog, Unicorn Pudding, and like tomorrow's Union Pool show, visuals by BAMiAM.tv.
Rub associate Nick Catchdubs is also DJing a New Year's Eve event in Brooklyn, at the Built by MeanRed party at Loreley (12/31) with Jubilee and a surprise guest. Tickets are available.
The Rub will also DJ at Brooklyn Bowl on January 15 for The Freedom Party vs. The Rub. Tickets are on sale.
One more NYE option is Murray Hill's New Year's Eve Extravaganza at Knitting Factory with Dirty Martini, Bridget Everett, Angie Pontani, Neal Medlyn, Trixie Little & Evil Hate Monkey, Amber Martin, and DJ Sirlinda. More expensive VIP tickets are sold out but $45 general admission tickets are still available.
Explaining their eight-year hiatus, Cristina says, "It's been two torturous terms of Republican disease and culture death. Now that we're free, it's the perfect time for us to bring back our own brand of sick in celebration."Tickets for the December 17th show are now on sale. More info and dates HERE.
Adds her live-in guitarist, Jon Spencer, "This whole 'change' thing isn't new... Boss Hog represented change with every album we made!"
Joining Boss Hog at the Bowery Ballroom is a full compliment of rhythm and grind, featuring the country punk moxie of Tennessee's Those Darlins, the titillating parade of burlesque goddesses Harvest Moon and Dirty Martini, and special guest DJ Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
