Happy New Year! (and Puppy)

Happy New Year! With the new year comes a new puppy...the yet unnamed puppy was a gift from Ellen and Hal and is currently the apple of KT's eye (like the cat, I have had my reservations, but will eventually weaken...)

What's my name?

Elvis' Birthday Fight Club (Yeah, FIGHT CLUB)

The Warehouse Theater

1021 7th St., NW, WDC (Entrance at 645 New York Ave.)
$15 advance/$20 door - 2 Shows @ 8 p.m. & 10:30 p.m.

On Saturday, January 8, 2011 - what would have been the King of Rock n' Roll's 76th birthday -- ABJ and L'il Dutch Burlesque thrown down with a raucous show: Elvis' Birthday Fight Club.


Elvis' Birthday Fight Club, a 21-and-over performance, takes place Saturday, January 8, with two shows: 8 pm and 10:30 pm at The Warehouse Theatre (1021 7th Street NW). Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Visit www.fightclubshow.com for tickets and event announcements.


Hosted by "Elvis" and DC's newest femme-cee Kittie Glitter, the event pits old school heroes and subversive villains against each other in FIVE blistering rounds, Elvis' Birthday Fight Club will make good on the King's request for "a little less conversation...a little more action." Between bouts, DC's burlesque entertainers L'il Dutch, Reverend Valentine and Ouioui Nonnon will keep the crowd all shook up. Audience members will also have the chance to flex their muscles with an Elvis tria contest over-seen by the King, himself.


Preliminary match-ups include light and middle-weight fighters from DC's neo-vaudeville, burlesque and alternative art scenes, including Swami Yomahmi, Lucrezia Blozia and introducing David Tasselhoff. Watch as they duke it out in ridiculous home-grown costumes as characters ranging from fantasy (box robot anyone?), to animals (yes, we mean cock fight) to historic figures (Four Score and...).
