No Mas Bodas
Enter this in your Google calendar, write it in your diary, tape it to your locker and cross your heart: It’s going to be a fever-pitch night of performance this Thursday at W&TW with Silky Shoemaker and No Mas Bodas.
As anyone who has seen Silky Shoemaker’s performances can attest, she’s the ultimate entertainer, a master of disguise, parody, obscenity and the macabre. She founded Camp!Camp! and GayBiGayGay AND co-produced Rebecca Havemeyer’s Trivia Travesty. She’s so in-demand, I hear that even P.J. Chavez wants to interview her. This Thursday, she will debut her new short play featuring video collage, dancing and papier machê costumes at W&TW before she takes it on tour.
Definitely do not miss No Mas Bodas after Silky’s play. These four ladies are crushing hearts and ruining dance shoes with their mystical synth/saxophone/cello/drum machine avant-pop. Nobody in town comes close to what they’re doing right now. Thursday night is definitely your only chance to catch them against the backdrop of the Texas Biennial exhibition, which is almost over! The party’s free, so bring whoever you most like to dance with and we’ll see you here. Silky goes on at 7:45, No Mas Bodas at 8:45.
