Open Thread’s fundraiser Variety Variety Variety! returns to the brillobox – Saturday, the 31st!

The event kicks off at 9pm with the comedic stylings of Hustlebot, Pittsburgh’s best improv troupe. Check out their website and videos - they’re not to be missed. Mariage Blanc, a top local music act, follows at 10pm. Check out their music here - and their killer reviews here and here.

At 11pm, the dance party kicks off with the world premiere of Therm & Soul’s new music video, directed by Michael McParlane and Michael Pisano, both of whom are featured in the first volume of Open Thread Regional Review, Vol. 1! DJ Thermos (of Therm&Soul) will provide the beats for the dance party, and Tom McConnell will supply the video, including footage from Michael Mallis.

The dance party also serves as an after-party for the release of Encyclopedia Destructica’s “Flying Destructicate,” featuring Jon Brodsky.

The Typewriter Girls will emcee the evening, and artist-vendors Curious Machine and Isn’t That Something? will sell their wares from 9-11.

All this for $5. ($4 if you just come for the dance party.) See you there (if you’re 21)!
