"What is Showgasm you ask? It's direct eye contact with Sharon Stone, a dance craze that began at your bat mitzvah. It's us, babe. Or more simply put, a raucous variety show with performances ranging from hilarious to titillating to utterly inappropriate! Come. You've never looked better!"
Hosted by John Early. Featuring Hamm Samwich and performances by Vinny DePonto, Flaming Mermaid Broken Star, Jemima Kirke, Isaac Oliver and Julio Torres. *
Those Lost Boys
Aug. 21-23, 8 PM
"They’re back! Those Lost Boys, the legendary indie band that mysteriously vanished from the independent circuit in the early aughts, will reunite at Ars Nova this August for an exclusive and intimate concert. For the first time, members old and new will play together, and answer all the questions we've been asking ourselves since they disappeared into myth."
