Mimi Imfurst Presents: Dollhouse Revue
Doors at 10 p.m.
Voyeur Nightclub, 1221 Saint James St.
Philly’s drag scene is booming. Fabulous men and women get decked out in their Sunday best to entertain their fans, have some fun and show that dressing as the opposite sex can be an invigorating experience. One of Philly’s biggest drag queens, Mimi Imfurst, and her team the Dollhouse Doll Stars bring audiences great performances every Wednesday at Voyeur Nightclub. The Dollhouse Revue is one show not to be missed. With a different theme every week, over-the-top antics, scantily clad men and fierce men pretending to be fierce women there is no shortage of entertainment. This is the stuff drag dreams are made of. Music is provided by DJ Carl Michaels and you need to be 21-plus for entry. If you’re in the mood for some gender-bending entertainment check this out. If you thought Lady Gaga as Joe Calderone was something, then you clearly haven’t seen how great drag can be.
6 p.m. – 11 p.m.
Magic Pictures, 618 Hoffman St.
Four Philadelphia artists will be presenting their work at the South Philly gallery Magic Pictures. Each piece features the use of light while the artists incorporate their own ideas and interests. Talk with the artists, discuss their work with new people and maybe start planning some projects of your own. There will be a variety of pieces including drawings, sculpture and interactive installations. The artists include Amber Clayton, Jovana Sarver, Ellen Foster and Emilia Brintnall. Everything will be on display through February, so if you can’t get enough of a particular installation or drawing, you have plenty of time to see it again.
The Ball Pit
Little Bar 738 S. Eighth St.
Little Bar has quickly become one of Philly’s go to places to let loose. The bar is located in Bella Vista and brings the area a youthful vibe and crowd. But, the crowd is about to bring some insanity to Bella Vista as Little Bar presents The Ball Pit. Two floors for dancing with a list of DJs including DJ Sylo, Bo Peep, Cool Hand Luke, Wooferface, Ben Arsenal, QI Command, Marc Usher, Dr. Ew, Tom Charles and VJ Kraken will be performing. Not to mention the cover is $3 and there is the possibility of a ball pit. Two floors to dance and a ball pit gives you the chance to buy drinks and still act like a kid.
2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St.
The idea that you can alter someone’s mental state, make them do things or erase fears is awesome in a cool and frightening way. The First Unitarian Church will be having a free hypnosis seminar Saturday where you can learn more about hypnosis and how it works. Participants will even be hypnotized and get a chance to hypnotize others. Make someone cluck like a chicken or, if you’re mean, give you all their money. While, I’m sure the seminar is meant to present hypnosis in a positive light and give participants a new skill to be only be used for good, there will no doubt be a someone who tries to hypnotize their roommate or enemy for an evil purpose–bank robbery, writing a paper, going to class for them, etc. Space is limited, so if you’re tired of watching David Blaine do magic tricks that aren’t really magic, why not learn a trick of your own.
