Black Cat Burlesque
We honestly haven’t put all that much thought into what we’d want to do for our big three-oh … mostly on account of all the rocking back and forth and screaming that happens whenever the subject comes up. But whatever we end up doing (denial party!), here’s hoping it has even a fraction of the freaky nudity that’s going to be going on for Mary Widow’s Dirty 30 bash at Oberon. The whole unclad crew of Black Cat Burlesque will be on hand (and knees) to show the fellow eccentric ecdysiast that you’re only as old as you feel. Namely, aroused.

For another terror-fying year, the spooky-tacular Coolidge Corner Theatre will be hosting its horror-rific 12-hour tribute to all things gore, guts and tooth decay related, the annual Halloween Movie Marathon. Alongside shining stalwarts of batshit cinema House and Re-Animator, they’ll be live performances by The Dick Panthers, haunted boners courtesy of Black Cat Burlesque, four pants-shittingly secret screenings, and awards going out to the best in trick-or-treatin’ gear. Not to brag or nothing … but our “blood-soaked child’s Iron Man costume” was kinda a big hit last year. Make us proud.
