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!

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?
