BUST MAGAZINE’S 15-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY:
In honor of BUST Magazine’s 15-Years of independent publishing in celebrating grrrl culture on the cutting edge, on Tuesday, August 12th, we will be mixing the best in female nouveau cirque variety acts with a stellar concert performed by some of the best female artists around! Dr. Martens is a proud sponsor of BUST Magazine’s 15-Year Anniversary Celebration Concert at the Salon Perdu at Spiegleworld in New York.
The 1920’s Belgian, Spiegeltent is the most dynamically beautiful, opulent and unique performance venue in all of Manhattan, and will be sure to transport BUST’s audience members to another time and place. It is the very essence of a ‘cabaret salon’ and intimate concert hall with near-perfect acoustics at every point in the venue. Like every old theatre, her ghosts travel with her, woven into ballooning velvet canopies, a circular teak dance floor, and stained, cut-glass windows. Her intimate booths, ornate bar, and bevelled mirror columns hold a million secrets while her glorious Art Nouveau chandelier swings overhead. This is the BUST event not to be missed! So be sure to doll up and come on out to help BUST blow out the birthday candles!
BUST’s Master of Ceremonies is one of our all time favorite cover girls, the forever enchanting, funny, and crafty Amy Sedaris! Live musical performances will be provided by Morningwood, Free Blood, and Leslie Hall. JD Samson (Le Tigre, Men) will be rockin’ the decks to get all our booties shaking. And Mr. Murray Hill will kill us with laughter from his hilarious antics, while the sultry World Famous *BOB*, NYC’s bravest and bawdiest burlesque performer and The Pontani Sisters, will dazzle us with their best birthday burlesque act. Also, NYC’s Lady Circus will be on hand to amaze the audience with aerial acrobatics, stilt walking, and fire-breathing! Every ticket holder will not only have the most memorable evening ever, but all ticket holders to BUST’s 15-Year Celebration Concert will have a special invite to BUST’s exclusive pre-party area from 8pm-9:45pm to be hosted in the DJ Tent, East Wing of the Garden and surrounding booth areas, directly opposite of the NY Waterfalls, and will receive a free subscription to BUST Magazine. Plus, the first 500 guests to arrive will score a BUST goodie bag packed with goodies and treats to take home. Remember, we can not spell BUST without U, so this is our way to THANK YOU!!
