I actually have lots of things I want to share with you that have happened in the past few months, but it has become a lot of information to pass along, which means that I have been putting it off every week. And the list gets longer. I will parcel condensed versions of the exciting things that have been happening to me next week, but THIS week I am going to share the announcement of this year's COUNTDOWN TO YURI'S NIGHT!

From the people who bring you Elvis' Birthday Fight Club...
April 12, 2014  |  Anacostia Arts Center | Tickets $25  |  21+

Boldly Going Where No Yuri's Night Has Gone Before...East of the River!

To make getting to our new C2YN location easier, we are securing free parking and free shuttle service from and to Eastern Market Metro and Anacostia Metro stations.

This year we have awesome additions to the performer roster, better views for the show (smaller capacity...reserve early), hard liquor (you may need those shuttles), and an even more ridiculous celestial costume contest planned for you.

Details below. See you April 12!
C2YN Mission Control,

Phase 1: An intimate SCI-FI Burlesque Show starring...

MR. GORGEOUS, who is winging his 6'6 inches of colassal allure down from NYC for his second Countdown to Yuri's Night; Cos Play cutie MAKI ROLL; the classy, sassy  CANDY DEL RIO; and the glitzy glamour of GIGI HOLLIDAY!

The show would not be complete without antics from the Crew of the S.S.S. Gagarin

Matt Grant as Number Two, Kittie Glitter as Capt. Ballcrusher, Drinkbot as himself, and Special Guest Patrick Doneghy will try very hard for their fourth episode NOT to be the one with the whales!

Shows at 8 pm, 9:30 and 11!

Phase 2: Live Bands Keep the Party Engines Running... may think the "Mothership" has landed when JAMES TERRELL THE COLOR OF SOUND mixes some P-Funk Covers into their original rock, blues, reggae and soul music...

and BUZZING into the party are the crowd-favorite Surf-Rockin Mutants, ATOMIC MOSQUITOS who deliver a full-on surf assault sprinkled with the with the sci-fi sounds of a Theremin.

Phase 3: Make Sure you've packed your moon boots for the
Lunar Dance Party...

with DJ Adrian Loving!

Phase 4: Art Exhibition

The opening of SPACE TRUCKIN', an art exhibition where 15 local artists, with an inferior mastery of physics and an abundant admiration of Science Fiction, explore modes of futuristic transportation.


Celestial COSTUME CONTEST at midnight, Complimentary Space Junk, retro-future Airstream Tours...and more!!!!!!

The 2014 Countdown to Yuri’s Night is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

What the Heck is Yuri's Night?

On April 12, 1961 Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin embarked on the historic first manned space flight. Twenty years later on April 12, 1981, the US launched the first space shuttle flight. We think that's something worth celebrating! Every year on April 12, Yuri's Night parties are held all around the world; it's like the Cinco de Mayo for space. Whereas many Yuri’s Night parties focus on the science-fact of the holiday, Countdown to Yuri's Night (C2YN) celebrates the holiday with silly, creative, and edgy artistic interpretations of space exploration.
