Go To ‘Dress Up/Get Down’ In NYC!

If you’re in the NYC area and need something to do next Tuesday night, I suggest you get all spiffed up and make your way to Dress Up/Get Down because you like being spiffy and having a good time.

Dress Up/Get Down is the first event of a new themed art show series, Something New, which is billed as “an underground creative showcase featuring a monthly hand-picked roster of our favorite brilliant creators from the NYC and surrounding areas,” and will more than likely be amazing.

The whole shebang is hosted by The Lowbrow Society for the Arts, an NYC-based art collective that provides resources to help people of color, women, and LGBTQ emerging artists show their work, including local designer Klub Kid Vintage, who will be featured in a mini pop-up shop. (Sidenote: how sweet is this plaid blazer from Klub Kid Vintage’s Etsy shop? Very.) The show also promises roaming stylists, DJ Nolita Selector, burlesque, a photobooth, prizes for best dressed, and cheeky readings by Thought Catalog editor Ryan O’Connell.

You should totally go.

It’s $10 at the door, or RSVP and subscribe to the mailing list for a nice little discount!

  1. I just moved to the NYC area and have been going to as many bizarre events as possible in an effort to meet fellow weirdos so… thank you! I’m totally gonna go to this.

    • hey if you’ve just moved to nyc one of the best events to check out is first saturdays at the brooklyn museum. it definitely brings all the queers in the area out.

      • I second that. I randomly caught the Melissa Ferrick show at the Brooklyn Museum a few months ago. SO MANY QUEERS EVERYWHERE.
