Join us Friday night for a "slow and steady" kind of philanthropy. Join legendary NY burlesque beauties RunAround Sue and Legs Malone as they travel down with Ukelele Master Mr. Kenny Law to join forces with Ringmaster Blackfire from the Carnival of 5 Fires and the firecrackers from Sweet Tease Burlesque (including solo performances by THE MUSE and Lady Scona). Friday night this cast of lovely characters will use their feminine wiles and other enchanting talents to raise money and awareness for AIDG.

What do you need to do? Enjoy the show, Sweethearts, we'll take care of the rest.
And if you can't make the show, help us out and tell your friends!

Yes, thats right - next year the esteemed Knitting Factory will be re-locating to Brooklyn and tonight we have the honor of producing the burlesque portion of the Anti-Pop Consortium. The Consortium is a pretty impressive group - yanked from Wikipedia:
Antipop Consortium are an alternative hip hop group. The group formed in 1997, when Beans, High Priest, M. Sayyid and producer Earl Blaize met at a poetry slam in New York City. They are notable for their stream-of-consciousness lyrics and musical references to contemporary composition methods.
They released several tape singles and two albums primarily on Dan the Automator's experimental hip-hop label 75 Ark before being signed by Warp Records in 2000. Their releases were met with mixed reviews from the mainstream music and underground hip-hop press alike, although they are noted for their inventiveness and the experimental electronic productions contributed by all members. They were frequently compared to other rappers with unorthodox lyrics, such as Kool Keith, MF Doom and Aesop Rock. In 2001, they opened for Radiohead during the European leg of their Amnesiac tour and subsequently toured with DJ Shadow."
And tonights event is an all-club produced show.... We're gonna be all over the place.
Pinkie Special brings her special brand of producing genius to our show and together we've booked some very lovely ladies to accompany us in saying farewell to the Knitting Factory as we know it - the Darling Janis Dimilo and the Top Knotch Booty Shaker, GiGi La Femme. And wrangling this group of kitty kats is none other than the captivating Albert Cadabara....
See you there Sweethearts.
