Celebrate the rebirth of Astroland at the "Death of Astroland" party!
This Saturday, the good news can be celebrated at the huge Halloween party at The Hook, in Red Hook, now-not-so-aptly themed "The Death of Astroland". My Bump 'n' Grindhouse producing cohorts and I will be there, with some of the fabulous numbers from our Coney Island show. 15 bucks to get in, but free beer and booze! And a giant ball pit. Seriously. Should be fun.
And a couple of recommendations to keep the Halloween party going next week: on Tuesday night, the second installment of Happy Happy Tuesdays! Produced by Ari Levine and his band KiNDERGARTEN at Fontana's, this monthly band-burlesque-variety show is a lot of fun; Clams performed at the premiere last month and a good time was had by all. This month is very exciting: in celebration of Halloween it's Warriors Night! All the bands will be dressed as different gangs, and the theme will run through the whole night. Can...you...DIG IT! And on Halloween night, it's an extra-spooky edition of The Night Cap! Then head over to the Slipper Room, Clams is in the Halloween show! It should be full of people coming from the crowded nightmare that is the Village Halloween Parade.
One year I had the C3P0, and then I was Indiana Jones three years in a row.

Shout out for a Clams interview and a whole lot of show!
In today's Candy Pitch, the interview is with the one and only Clams Casino!
If you're inspired to check Clams out in person after reading it, you're in luck! This is a big show weekend-tonight you can find her at Wasabassco Burlesque, always a fun show with a bonus cameo appearance tonight by me, and tomorrow night she's debuting a frankly amazing new number at the mysterious and saucy Revealed Burlesque. And then, on Monday, it's Jump the Shark! That is really going to be a great, fun show and totally worth heading to Galapagos for. See flyer above (with snazzy art by A.V. Phibes.)

Fall in New York: playing the "what did I miss this weekend?" game
Anyway, one thing I definitely won't miss this week: tonight's installment of What's My Line? Live in NYC! It's going to be a fun one; we've got two of the coolest, most unique contestants I've ever had on the show, and a fun, seasonally appropriate mystery guest. Plus our guest panelist is the fabulous Marisa Olson! Marisa is a multimedia artist and performer, curator, writer, critic and all-around new media intellectual. She's also an extremely talented, funny and lovely person and it'll be a fun night all around. So, come on down to the Parkside!
