Dust & Corruption Calendar: January 2012

Well, it's been a mild season so far, but hope spring eternal. At my parents' place over Christmas break, we reflected that it was more like March than December...until we drove up to the mountains to visit the Flight 93 Memorial and nearly froze. That was a loud-and-clear reminder that it was winter.

Now that the dust is settling from all the holiday season bustle, here's some new things to grab your attention...

1/4 - Gigi Holliday's Ladies' Night Out Presents: Ladies Night IN Pajama Party! Burlesque show hosted by my pal Gigi, and including some other pals like Cherrie Sweetbottom and Hot Todd Lincoln. Showtime is 8:30pm. Red Palace, 1212 H St NE, Washington, DC.

1/5-7 - Molotov Productions takes their acclaimed play "Fat Men in Skirts" to New York! Three nights only, at the Under St. Mark's Theater, 94 St. Marks Place, New York, NY. Showtime at 8:00 every night. Tickets available here.

1/6 - Gilded Lily Presents: Anything Goes! Burlesque show from Baltimore's Gilded Lily troupe. Showtime is 10pm, at the Red Palace.

1/9 - "Vanitas Drawing" Class taught by Lado Pochkhua, and using a real human skeleton. I'm not sure about the exact location but it's definitely in Brooklyn. More information here. (And you all know I approve of drawing classes!)

1/19 - Edgar Allan Poe's Birthday. Alas, at last report the big birthday celebrations have been discontinued due to funding cuts, but you can still make time to honor Edgar's birthday by reading some of his work or watching one of the adaptations with Vincent Price.

1/27 - Flying Dog Brewery Presents "Where the Wildeman Are" with Sticky Buns Burlesque. Beer and burlesque as Flying Dog unveils their new brew and my pals at Sticky Buns do their thing. At the Patterson Theater in Baltimore. Showtime 8pm, tix $20, $15 (includes 2 drinks).

1/29 - "French Cancan", Jean Renoir's film chronicling the Moulin Rouge cabaret will be show at the National Gallery of Art, East Building, 4th & Constitutions Aves, Washington DC. Showtime is 5:00.
