Fri, July 17: Nouvelle Époque @ The Players mansion [05 Jul 2009|08:39pm]

Greetings, time travelers...We thought you'd enjoy this :)


Gemini & Scorpio cordially invite you to

Nouvelle Époque Cabaret-Salon


Fri, July 17, 7-9pm VIP reception, 8pm-late main event

The Players private club, 16 Gramercy Park South, $30-$10, 21+


Details & RSVP: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html

FB: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=96321774194

La Belle Époque was a time of artistic and intellectual abandon. Painters, poets, philosophers, and the cleverest of rogues mingled at cabarets and salons to indulge in the Bohemian sensuality of the creative life. The connoisseurs of art, thought, and expression celebrated the tumult of the age in high class and with impeccable style. We hope to inspire you to do the same on this special night in one of the true jewels of NYC.

The Players:

The legendary Players, boasting such luminary members as Mark Twain, Eugene O'Neill and Ernest Hemingway, is a members-only social club founded by the famed 19th century Shakespearean actor Edwin Booth. The Players' landmarked home is a magnificent Victorian mansion with a wrought-iron balcony overlooking Gramercy Park.


The Cabaret:

The Slipper Room's illustrious owner James Habacker presents--and, in guise of Chester Mackerel, charming professor of abnormal psychology, hosts--a night of exuberant entertainment to ignite the senses. JC Hopkins' Biggish Band plays rollicking hard bop swing all night featuring guest vocalists tap-dancing sensation DeWitt Fleming Jr, velvet-voiced Jolie Holland, and Tony-nominated downtown icon Justin Bond, in addition to JC's resident front-woman Queen Esther. The always-surprising Julie Atlas Muz (Miss Exotic World 2006), the jaw-droppingly stylish MsTickle, and hilariously naughty Trixie Little & Evil Hate Monkey perform feats of burlesque to live accompaniment by the band all night. In band breaks, 1920s tap sensation The Minsky Sisters amuse and titillate you.


The cabaret runs 9pm-12am in the formal Dining Room, preceded at 8:30pm by a complimentary dance class. After the cabaret, DJ Shakey spins a most unique mix of vintage + modern beats to keep you dancing.


The Salon:

After 9pm, the Sargent Room across The Great Hall is your salon for cocktails and conversations, as jazz pianist Jesse Gelber sets the elegant mood. A custom cocktail menu will be crafted for you by swanky lifestyle guru Fredo Ceraso of Loungerati.com.


VIP Reception:

The Sargent Room and its wrought-iron park-facing balcony are reserved for VIP guests 7-9pm for a cocktail reception and a private performance by San Francisco opera diva Marisa Lenhardt, as stylish cigarette girls treat you to hand-rolled cigars and hand-dipped chocolates, courtesy of Velvet Cigars and Desserts by Michael Allen.


Dress code:

Belle Epoque - late 1800s to WWI, black tie + evening glamour, speakeasy + cabaret, top hats + tails, feathers + gloves, outdo yourself at your most fabulous.

Pulp Fiction, anyone? (Science Stories -1953) [06 Jun 2009|07:01pm]


I came upon this wonderful pulp fiction today at a community yardsale - bought it off an elderly man for 50 cents
It was the only good thing in his garage, but after finding it beneath a mountain of cook books I immediately knew that it would be my best purchase of the day.

Science Stories
Issue No. 1
October 1954

The condition is, well, horrible, held together with little more than two yellowing pieces of Scotch tape at the spine.
Nevertheless, what it lacks in physical stability, it makes up for in fifties pulp charm.
I've scanned the title pages and any page with an illustration
This post is very image heavy so it will be linked back to my journal

Sat 12/20, NYC: retro-futuristic party scene film shoot invite [15 Dec 2008|05:27pm]

Next Saturday, 12/20, 9am-1pm, friends of ours at an indie film production company are shooting a circus-tastic & colorful party scene for their new dystopian thriller set to premier at Tribeca Film Fest next year. We've been given the opportunity to extend the invite to this scene for about 50 extras who can rock out a post-apocalyptic retro-futuristic tribal-glam steampunk look. It should take a couple of hours overall, and they will provide food + drink (and, of course, the party) for the participants. First come first served, 50 spots only. If you have special skills: stilts, acro, juggling, contortion, etc, please mention it when you RSVP--you may end up being a featured extra. Please only RSVP if you can commit to the 9am-1pm run of the shoot.

More details will be posted to our mailing list this week: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events_list.html or you can RSVP to us directly via our website: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html
