The Poetry Brothel: Lupercalia (NYC)

  • The Back Room 102 Norfolk Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

Answer with us the call of the wolves on this blood-red-letting evening of mystics, mayhem, and more. Help us sanctify this sacred space of syntax and party as the Romans do. What could be more romantic?

Poetry of the flesh will be recited by burlesque Mademoiselle Estelle and Holly Bordeaux. Other diversions will include mystics Holy Crow and Rebecca Fey, illusions by The Magic, sketches by sketchy sketch artist Too Loose, the musical stylings of Feathers Taylor, and our house band Lucy & The Monsters. And of course, the evening will be presided over by Mister Charley, The Madame, and that rapscallion Tennessee Pink.

Doors open at 6:30pm. The show begins promptly at 7:30pm. Themed costumes are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.

The Poetry Brothel is brought to you by The Poetry Society of New York, in partnership with Indolent Books and Black Ocean.
