Somewhat 90s Variety Show TOMORROW and Saturday

While my introduction to Arturo Miles’ “Somewhat Insert Theme Here Variety Show was the Somewhat Sci-fi Variety Show (so kickass, and guess what? There’s going to be a Part II in April! I am there), it all started a few years ago with his Somewhat 80s Variety Show. Has enough time passed that the 90s feel retro too? Arturo thinks so, and this Friday he will be joined by a variety of performers showing us just what the 90s meant to them. In Arturo’s case, he says that “the macarena was awful, fashion…was pretty funny…hip-hop was good!”

As for the performance itself (as always, starts at eight, tickets are ten bucks, you should definitely come! Come early if you want an actual seat!), “Aneka McMullen will be showcasing choreography inspired by the fly girls from In Living Color, B-Boy J-Sun will be throwing down a breakin’ set to 90’s beats… Manboy will sing, loop, and play the guitar to some of his 90s favorites. Aliisa Paris, Deonna and Deshonna Graylige will perform choreography to their favorite 90s cartoon themes. Anne Johnson and Nora Figl will also cover some 90s ballads. Bryce Davidson will give us another comedy improv set.” Arturo himself will be showcasing a 90s mix of comedy modern dance and a little lip-synce, plus some new waacking and house dance choreography.
