Can you believe, this is already the 5th installment of Nora Burns‘ New York Stories? Not familiar? It’s a night where mostly old-school New Yorkers tell a fast, fun, fabulous story from ‘back in the day’. Nora invites you to,
“Come hear some of the tales from when New York was a wonderland of fabulous freaks and misfit toys. When there were hookers instead of the Highline and you couldn’t swing a Fiorucci jumpsuit without hitting a hopped up hustler. A time when the only kids you saw were club kids with giant diapers and Hitler mustaches, and the parks were full of nodding out junkies, cruising guys and rabid squirrels. There was sex everywhere, the music was great, the economy was bad, and the clothes were held together with electric tape.”
I, would say that, minus one, the lineup is pretty legendary:
Tonight, Thursday February 25th, 7:30 at The Stonewall Inn, 53 Christopher Street. $10 cover. (2 drink minimum) Say hi.
