Preview: Tank Girl Party at The Barbary 8/31

“Look, it's been swell, but the swelling's gone down…”

Is it the end of the summer or the end of the world? Does it really make that much of a difference? Join us upstairs at our favorite “watering” hole, The Barbary, at 10:30 pm on 8/31 to wave your favorite finger at the summer of ‘17 before all the usual boring, lame Labor Day bullshit breaks your fighting spirit. We’ll have post-apocalyptic decorations and drink specials, and costumes aren’t required but are VERY encouraged, to the tune of the Tank Girl movie soundtrack and other 90’s Riot Grrl icons, and all in tribute to Jamie Hewlett’s Kangaroo loving, heavy ordinance deploying, supreme feminist ass kicker. Not badass enough? How about a special performance of Liberty Rose and Kate Nyx of Broad St. Burlesque’s ultra-rare Tank and Jet Girl routine? Come on, birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. Let’s do it, let’s get shit drunk on a school night and call out sick the next day.
