Few performers have as energetic and devoted a cult following as Kate Bush—and our neighborhood is home to many of the freaky, adoring fans she inspired to pursue careers as performers.
So you better believe that Bush’s upcoming July 30th birthday is going to be properly fêted in the neighborhood. Tonight, House of Yes will present the 5th annual edition of local party Kate Bushwick, and you’re invited!
Join Bushwick Burlesque headliner Darlinda Just Darlinda, Polari host Eric Schmalenberger, Bushwig veteran Shane Shane and many others at the Bushwick hotspot for an evening of performances topped off with a dance party in honor of the beloved artist.
The evening kicks off at 9am and is scheduled to run until 2. Will there be leotards? Most assuredly so. Will there be plenty of opportunities to sing along? We can only imagine there will be.
On the heels of her recent, hotly anticipated tour, Bush said that “One of the main reasons for wanting to perform live again was to have contact with [my] audience. They took my breath away. Every single night they were so behind us. You could feel their support form the minute we walked on stage. I just never imagined it would be possible to connect with an audience on such a powerful and intimate level; to feel such, well quite frankly, love. It was like this at every show.”
Does this sound like your kind of love fest? Then get out there, Bushwick!
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here, and House of Yes is located at 2 Wyckoff Avenue at the corner of Jefferson Street, off of the Jefferson Street stop on the L train. RSVP on Facebook and enjoy!
