WIERD Presents the debut of HERE COME THE GIRLS!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

The WIERD is eminently excited for this week's performance which has been in the planning stages for many months. As you all know with all the recent VRevolutions in birth control ITs uh oh...Its that day of the year - ANAREXIA'S BIRTHDAY PARTY!!! Our fantastically-abusive nasty Queen mother demands 'top' quality(ouch!) entertainment or we're all fucked(literally, ow stop!), and needless to say WIERD's got just the thing...mmmm hmmm. And, on a dare I say on a more serious note - let me exxxplain...

Week after week the WIERD has found ITself ending up without fail IT seems, at a certain Very Rare ultra-depraved and incredibly alive latenight Sunday party on a certain desolate, run-down block of Bk to witness some of the most intensely energized, wildly explosive, and epicly complex theatrical performances I've simply ever seen honestly, in what I can confidently say is perhaps the best kept secret in NYC performance art, modern dance, and nightlife. All rolled into one.

With this in mind, it is truly with pleasure that I welcome the WIERD weekly party debut of The BACKSPACE PERFORMANCE ENSEMBLE for a new multi-media dance performance extravaganza entitled "Here Come the Girls" live at midnite! I'd like to be able to try and quickly give you all an idea of exactly what to expect this wednesday, but any attempt is doomed, these kids are beyond. And honestly, they give me hope in every way. I thought the wonders of worlds as spontaneously imaginative as this dissappeared forever with the demise of the legendary Blacklips Performance Cult eons ago, or did it? Suffice it to say in my best attempt: their ever-charismatic leader the inordinately elusive Krystal Something Something and his company of 7 dancers take the refined, eroticized compositional restraint of a young Michael Clark, combine it with the Gender sur-realdysphoric visual aesthetics of Leigh Bowery in the mature d'Offay window-era days, send it back to an early 70s all-star writers love-in between Rowan and Martin, The Pythons and "Phantom of Paradise"-era Brian DePalma and spritz it with a little Warholian-laced abjecto-elixir from the late 60s Factory Nights and you've got this seethingly wonderful, anarchic beast. Without furthur ad-ew..."Here Come the Girls"...see you all in the WIERD World tomorrow evening! Backspace on Facebook:
"Here Come the Girls!":

This Thursday evening Vaura will play a special show at the Japan Society immediately following the premiere of Yoshihiro Nishimura's gore-soaked new film, Helldriver. Tickets to the film and performance are $12, and 50% of ticket sales go to the Japan Society's earthquake relief fund! Director Yoshihiro Nishimura and actress Eihi Shiina will be there in person.

And Friday night Wierd's own THROAT joins a blisteringly hot psychedelic black metal bill at Santos as Brandon Stosuy's 'Haunting the Chapel' teams up with Chronic Youth to present Celestia from France and Forteresse from Quebec! WIERD will make a Very Rare guest DJ appearance at this one to keep the cold black pestilence in check! http://www.santospartyhouse.com/event/index/id/2164

Anarexia, Pre-Op Trans, and Frankie Teardrop Spin the WIERD World!
