Press for TypewriterGirls Gone Furry!

June 24th, 2010

While, even four years later, it doesn’t seem like the mainstream media entirely GETS what it is the TypewriterGirls do and what a “poetry cabaret” is (a neologisim of which I am proud), at least they are paying attention to us!  I take this as a compliment, personally. Check out the coverage of our upcoming show!

The Tribue-Review “Hot Picks”

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/ae/s_687357.html

Special event: Fur is word-er

Call it a shenanigan-filled, dada-bred poetry cabaret, a celebratory welcome to Anthrocon 2010 or an evening of off-beat unclassifiable entertainment.

On Friday, the Typewriter Girls will team up with the Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails, the Bridge City Bombshells, plus comedian Gab Bonesso, some area poets and others for an evening of controlled artistic chaos loosely organized under the title “The Typewriter Girls Gone Furry.”

The impetus for the evening is Anthrocon 2010, a convention that begins today at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center of “Furry” fans who identify with animals and often dress or act like animals.

Events planned to get attendees in touch with their inner beast include the Bridge City Bombshells performing feats of “Furry Burlesque,” an open bar with themed drinks such as “When Minks Make Love,” a performance by the local band the Hood Gang, and the Typewriter Girls exploring the question of what happens when your pet stuffed monkey wants to become a furry, too.

The evening gets under way at 7:30 p.m. Friday when doors open at Future Tenant, 819 Penn Ave., Downtown. Performances begin around 8 p.m.

Admission: $10, which includes an open bar.

Fri., June 25 — Stage

Damn right it’s Furry time again. According to www.anthrocon.org, attendance at Anthrocon — the big convention for those obsessed with anthropomorphics (humanlike animal characters) — has skyrocketed since it relocated to Pittsburgh, in 2006; last year, Furry pilgrims to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center numbered some 3,800. Pittsburghers are pleased as platypi to host the plushly costumed hordes again, complete with spin-off programming. At tonight’s Typewriter Girls Gone Furry, at Downtown‘s Future Tenant gallery, the Girls’ cabaret-style entertainment offers “Furry Burlesque” (by The Bridge City Bombshells), Furry-themed drinks (by Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails), poetry readings, comedy and live music. There’s even discounted admission for badge-holding (if not tail-wearing) visitors to the four-day Anthrocon 2010. BO 8 p.m. 819 Penn Ave., Downtown. $10. info@futuretenant.org.
