Al-Stravaganza: A Burlesque Tribute to the Music of Weird Al!

Daily from July 14-15
8 p.m.
$20; $35 VIP
Adult, Burlesque, Covers-Tributes

Since 2012, Tight & Nerdy have paid tribute to Weird Al through the art of striptease. This combo might not sound traditionally sexy, but the best burlesque often veers into unusual territory. This weekend, along with M.M. Productions, they’ll take the stage for quirky numbers celebrating the prolific satirist. They’ll have decades of hits and deep cuts to delve into, from Weird Al’s early years (“Another One Rides the Bus,” “Eat It”) to ’90s hip-hop (“Amish Paradise”) to recent releases like “Tacky,” a parody of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Artists taking the stage include Pickles Kintaro, Pearl E. Gates, the Infamous Nina Nightshade (Portland), Maggie Motorboat (Oakland), Mona Montague, and Smokey Throbinson. Tickets and more info here.
