From barely legal to legally bare, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York's ragtag team of art school rejects. The Rhinestone Gorillas originally operated on the SUNY New Paltz campus as Alpha Psi Ecydsia, the nation's premier college burlesque troupe. Now graduates, the Gorillas are looking to establish a home in New York at the Triad Theatre. The troupe is governed by one simple rule: all bad ideas must be acted upon. A mix of ridiculous off-the-wall humor, smarty-panty intellectualism and nerdery, and sex appeal that shocks more than it smolders sets the Gorillas apart from your average showgirls.
In their second event at the Triad, the Gorillas debut several brand-new acts sure to offend and entice. There will be a raffle pinata (!), and the addition of a very special, very stupid dating game. At the end of the night, one lucky audience member will win a date with "punk rock anti-pin-up" Gemma Stone.
Hosted by Lucida Sans, featuring Gemma Stone, Angelique Alamode, Hella Catessen, Izebel Vivant, Debra Delorean, Ceal Vespertine, Avian Rush, AND MORE! There's a live band, there's a DJ, there are drinks, and THERE WILL BE BOOBS.
