As the World Ends…two Titans will battle for divine supremacy:

Weighing in at 385 pounds, this monstrous marroon marauder is promising a room full of red noses and a stuffed chimney whether you’ve been naughty or nice!


Also featuring exhibitionist rounds by Doc Advencha, QuetzalGuncle and Barbara Streisand.

Come between 10 and 11pm for complimentary limo rides, with free champagne (and compliments)!


Zuzuka Poderosa
Zuzuka Poderosa has been bringing her own post-modern brand of baile funk – which she calls ‘Carioca Bass’ – to the world’s stages for a number of years now. Born and raised in Brazil, the half-Indonesian human baile funk boombox scorches ears from a home base in Brooklyn.

Stumblebum Brass Band
The Stumblebums reject nostalgia in favor of riotous spontaneity. Too punk for guitar and amps, The Stumblebums are known for ambushing innocent subway passengers and crashing bars with their post-apocalyptic Lower East Side punk brass sound.
