On “Shaken & Stirred” at the DelanceyAugust 4, 2010

Miss Runaround Sue

Half the lottery of going to a burlesque show is the crowd. What can you say when it’s d-baggy? The Slip thrived on random Saturday night UWS tourists and bridge-and-tunnel bachelorette parties—proof that everyone loves burlesque, even all of those who—cough—love it for the wrong reasons. That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about people who came for the free shots and literally tune out the free ti-tays. Yes, it happens. And you just want to smack ‘em. And it’s a friggin’ shame, because Runaround Sue is running a fantastic little show on the LES that is neither stage nor floor—it’s banquette. ...

Miss Runaround Sue

As I stepped over a broken mirror on my way back home, I thought about the person who dropped it having bad luck for 7 years.... and considered my own luck this evening.....not only had I been fortunate enough to avoid being abducted in the underground by the Freemason promoting an invitation only rave in the woods, near the fifth corner of the New Jerusalem, I was able to catch the second to the last train north bound and, some how, before leaving the Lockside Lounge, I ended up in the changing room / kitchen with the beautiful and ...
