If somebody asks you if you’re a god, what do you say? Does your teen angst have a body count? One, two, is Freddie coming for you? Do you have a compelling urge to say Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetleju…?
Then charge up your flux capacitor and hop in the Delorean cause this show is going to take you back to the future! Not chest-bursting aliens, slimers, or hockey-masked slashers will stop some of DC and Baltimore’s best burlesque and variety performers from bringing you a tribute to films that shaped a generation, and that continue to be loved by new generations.
Filling out our band of Goonies are The Sweetie Pie with Fruit on the Bottom, CHERIE SWEETBOTTOM; the Galactic Empire's secret weapon, DDP DRILL TEAM; Baltimore's Sicilian Princess, MARIA BELLA; Burlesque's Naughty Librarian, MISSY AGGRAVATION; DC's Own Sideshow Girl, MAB JUST MAB; and Goblin Queen, MOURNA HANDFUL. Hosted by The Duckman, MC HOT TODD LINCOLN.
FilmRoasters out of Richmond, VA, will be showing film footage pre-show and intermission of some of the most iconic and underground classics of the 1980s. http://www.filmroasters.com So if you gotta cut loose, footloose, put on your best Calvin Klein underwear, shave that teen wolf exterior, and eat before midnight. Then get ready to dirty dance, magic, dance!
An 80s dance party with DJ MELLIE MEL will follow the show!!!
Tickets: Pretty In Pasties @ The State
Tickets are $12 pre-sale and $15 at the door, but there is a caveat regarding seating:
"Most (though not all) of our shows offer the opportunity for you to dine at a table or get food at the bar. We reserve some of the dining tables in advance for a non refundable fee of $10/pair of seats, and the rest are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Some info about our dining tables:
There is a $10/person food minimum at all dining tables (Beer is not food. Neither is an appletini). Tables may be reserved as soon as tickets for a show are on sale, and we stop taking reservations at 5 p.m. the day before the show. You can make a reservation by calling the box office at[masked] or stopping by in person."
What this basically means is that if you want to get a good table / seat / view, that you will need to spend some extra money and plan ahead a little bit. Please use the comments section, etc. to coordinate with other members who plan on attending to assure that if you'd like to sit together that you set up your table situation accordingly.
