Break Out the White Knee Highs for Go Go Spectacular
Get ready for white knee boots and ceiling-aimed coifs: go-go dancing is back. High-kicking girl gang The Devil-Ettes would probably argue that it never went anywhere, and would you naysay women in patent leather boots and devil horns? Neither would we. Especially when they’re backed by a solid decade of synchronized capering, complete with fake eyelashes, brief skirts and frisky grins.
Brushing on the glitter for their biggest gala yet, these quick-stepping hell vixens are joined by San Francisco burlesque powerhouses in a one-time only genre hop - Kitten on the Keys, Kellita, San Francisco Boylesque, and Alotta Boutte will all shimmy along with The Devil-Ettes and guest go-go pros The Mini Skirt Mob.
Such prodigious shaking action is all under the aegis of a grand theatrical tribute to late, great ‘60s variety shows like Hullaballoo and Laugh-In. Featuring historic tributes, comedy, authors Domenic Priore and Lynn Peril (no word on whether or not they’ll be mini-skirt-bedecked), and music by The Barbary Coasters and Deke Dickerson’s All Star Frat Band, this will be a highly entertaining redux of the era of Warhol, Edie, and the Merry Pranksters. With plenty of booted feet doing the pony in perfect time.
November 13 and 14, 8 p.m., at The Brava Theatre, 2781 24th St. $25 in advance, $35 at door.
