That's right, this is the last one of the summer! Alexis and I are going narwhaling the last two weeks of August and Russell is closing Windup for the second week so he can install a merry-go-round or some such nonsense.
That means the whole miserable, sun-blistered month of August will be a drought of Dr. Sketchy's Baltimore goodness. Yup, you suckers are on your own. Well, for a month anyway.
So who's posing? Burlesque performance artist Femme 6! We were going to go with Femme 4 or 5, but well, you're
special, so we went with 6 who's, like, twice as good as 5 and is rumored to have broke a bottle over the head of 4 the last time they ran into each other. We've seen Femme 6 perform multiple times in Baltimore over the years (at least one of those was Paco Fish's Viva La Decadence)---she was actually supposed to pose last summer, but she's only in Baltimore for a small window every year and it didn't work out.
If you're curious, check our her artist manifesto on her blog
We'll have fabulous booze and prizes from Flying Dog Brewery
, Atomic Books
, and Baby Tattoo Books
. Doors will open 6, unless I forget to unlock them again, and the whole shebang will kick off at 7 o'clock!
Oh, and apparently we got out a shout-out from BUST magazine
. Tell me that ain't cool.
