Actor-musicians Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, who comprise the scantily-clad music duo The Skivvies, celebrate their new single "Hardbody Hoedown" with a release party and concert Nov. 19 at the Cutting Room.



The  Skivvies have garnered buzz thanks to their Youtube videos, which capture them playing various instruments, from the cello, ukulele, guitar and glockenspiel to the melodica, all in their underwear.

The evening features Cearley and Molina as well as Benanti, Taylor, Emma Hunton, Emily Bergl, Mitchell Jarvis, Adam Kantor and Joseph Morales.

The concert is also the launch of an ongoing residency for the Skivvies at the Cutting Room. The Skivvies will appear at The Cutting Room every first and third Monday of the month at 7:30 PM with different guest stars each week.

"Hardbody Hoedown" is described as a bluegrass-tinged parody mega-medley of hip-hop songs about body parts. "The mashups we’ve been doing at our live shows naturally led us to our parody single, 'Hardbody Hoedown,' where we give the filthiest rap the prettiest twang," Cearley said in a statement.

The song is now available for download via iTunes and other digital outlets. 

There is an $18 cover. For tickets visit spincyclenyc.com. The Cutting Room is located at 44 E. 32nd Street.
