Tony Award winner Alice Ripley (Next to Normal) and Wesley Taylor ("Smash") will join Lauren Molina (Marry Me a Little) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up) of The Skivvies for a Jan. 28, 2013, concert at the Highline Ballroom, to celebrate the release of their new music video "Hardbody Hoedown."
Known for their acoustic performances of pop songs, wearing nothing but their underwear, the Skivvies play instruments ranging from the cello, ukulele, guitar and glockenspiel to the melodica. They are frequently joined by special guests from Broadway.
Their single "Harbody Howdown" was released this fall, and the 8 PM concert at the Highline Ballroom will celebrate the music video for the single, which was directed by "Running With Scissors" author Augusten Burroughs.
"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.
