U.S.O.ver: A Protest Performance of Presidential Proportions

February 20 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $12
us

On February 20th, President’s Day, we invite you to celebrate the legacy of our nation’s leader and the people who made it possible. In the style of the classic USO shows, U.S.O.ver is a cabaret to entertain the troops – in this case the border patrol, unmanned drones, and police of the new regime. Enjoy a depraved evening of songs, dance, and shtick as we raise some morale.

Artists have created acts in response to the changing political landscape with a collection of vignettes that are queer, fun, nasty, and utterly devastating. U.S.O.ver is agitprop cum variety show. The performances satirically indict this current reality with a gaudy, star-spangled carnival of excessive zeal, fear, and nationalism. Part raucous party, part performance-protest, this event is a full-feral scream with a vaudevillian veneer that culminates in a sincere community gathering for actionable steps of future artful protest.
So come drink and dance, laugh, and rest your weary bones before we creatively collaborate in the streets once more…
After all, art trumps fart.
*Proceeds will be donated to the ACLU to continue to fuel the good fight.*
