Meet The Lady: Burlesque
posted June 19, 2012 5:58 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed July 18 at 8:00 PM, 92YTribeca
200 Hudson St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Something new for our inveterate Meet The Lady followers and artistic nudity lovers! Our long-running variety show is being upgraded from the 92YTribeca screening room to their mainstage, which gives us the chance to create a far more memorable and diverse program. First up: a tribute to burlesque in cinema (and vice versa).
The show will be blend of live performances, obscure film clips, and special guest appearances—with a killer after-party to follow.


• Special live interview with legendary burlesque artist Julie Atlas Muz; phone Q&A with film actress Beth Grant
• Presentations by singer/songwriter Jill Sobule and Gypsy Rose Lee biographer Karen Abbott
• Performances by Iris Explosion, Go-Go Harder, Fem Appeal and more! With stage-kitten Ariel Italic
• After-party with DJ Accident Report (and the Warm Leatherettes)
• Raffle prize ($130 value) donated by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab

92YTribeca is walking distance from the A,C,E,1,N,Q, and R trains. There's a bar in the mainstage area, and the cafe sells food which you can bring in as well. Let's hang out!

Bonus: Since the space is so big, ticket scarcity is unlikely to be an issue this time.

Um... METAFILTER'S OWN Ariel Italic, thank you very much.

Just wanted to add that we've now also got raffle prizes donated by artist Molly Crabapple and The Pleasure Chest!

We could REALLY use some help spreading the word about this event -- a lot more is at stake this time, since we have a much bigger space to fill, and since it's during July when a lot of people are out of town. I've got decent press contacts but I'm just one person and I can only reach out so far on my own.
I really want to thank mefites such as Eideteker, oh yeah!, brujita, and others who have come out to support us over and over since the early days.

Hey gang, we're doing something a little different w/r/t our raffle. Everyone gets one free ticket just for attending, but you can earn more by sharing our event on Facebook. Here are the details (and the list of prizes).

I didn't realize Jill Sobule is going to be there. LOVE AND LOVE. I will definitely be there.
