Sodden Mermaid Fashion Show | A Post-Parade Indulgence

June 22, 2013

Extra Action Marching BandThe post-Mermaid Parade hang you always wanted to attend. Sara Valentine’s Voluption and the Gowanus Ballroom hosted a delectably conjured evening of beguiling and curious entertainment.

Featured very special musical guests: Extra Action Marching Band, Vic Thrill, Flying Teeth, Brute Force, Donkee. Additional entertainment  by Master of Ceremonies and Sea Shanty Chanteur Ben Cerf, aerial by Liron Dan and Sandia Delavibora, performance art by Matthew Silver, aquatic soundtrack by DJ Steve Pagan, Bklyn Hooper Celia K and Friends, plus: a screening of Extra Action Marching Band’s short film, “The Burning Wigs of Sedition,” a story of wealth redistribution on the high seas.

Guests helped themselves to roast pig cooked on Gowanus Ballroom’s own spit, cooled down in the wading pool, rode Ben Cerf’s art bikes, “Pirates of the Broadway,” struted homemade fins and finery in the fashion show and costume contest, hosted by Editrix Abby, delighted in the tricks of magician Solomon, and of course, danced their socks off until the wee hours. An amazing night to remember.
