Some pics from last night's fundraiser for the Hysterical Festival, featuring performances by Negin Farsad, Livia Scott, Julie Klausner, Sara Schaefer, Pat Candaras, Leibya Rogers (Mindy Raf), Carla Rhodes, Brown Girls Burlesque and hosted by birthday girl Desiree Burch. The shindig was held at Rapture Cafe on Ave. A, currently showing some incredibly colorful and somewhat phallic art, providing an interesting backdrop for what was an otherwise sapphic showcase.
Carla Rhodes crafted this gem of a joke about the painting in the center of the mosaic below: "What's yellow and green and pleasurable all over? Bat-wing Grace Jones with a dildo coming out of her head." (Click here to see the pic solo.)
