halloween night

the show is an eye-popping evening of visual and performance art created by people who work in the sex industry to dispel the myth that they are anything short of artists, innovators, and geniuses! The wildly successful cabaret -style show is hitting the road, bringing audiences a blend of spoken word, music, burlesque, and multimedia performance art. Intelligent and hot, disturbing and hilarious, the performances offer a wide range of perspective on sex work, from celebration of prostitutes' rights and sex positivity to views from the darker sides of the industry.

Animal Hands

Say friends,
Tim Farrell here. Just a little "hi-ya" in your inbox to tell you that my band, Animal Hands, is playing a big show for the CMJ music festival this friday night at Union Hall in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We are the first group to go on out of four, so I am told we will be on around 9:30 or 10pm. If you are out and about, stop by why-don-cha? We are five fun, friendly, fanscinating fops who put on a nice little rock show.

Hope to see you there!
Timothy Stephen Stephen Farrell
