Dances of Vice held their Dada Revue at Don Hill's on Saturday night and played host to their merry band of sordid splendids all in the name of surrealism, fantasy and overall general madness. With the Master of Ceremonies, Isengart guiding them through the menagerie of mystifying performances from Berlin cabaret punk band Budzilla...-
Muffinhead the Exclamationist (Muffinhead the what?!), Ms Tickle and Lady Dada, it was a riot from start to finish.
Dances of Vice bring a whole new edge to the New York nightlife scene, recreating 1920s and 1930s inspired events, paying homage also to the Victorian and Rococco periods in the name of all that is wonderful, weird and bizarrely beautiful. Using "shock and elate" tactics, Dances of Vice have been entertaining since their creation by Shien Lee, the current event producer in 2007.
Saturday night's performance marks Berlin band Budzilla's debut in New York and going from their performance, we are certain to hear more from ze avant-garde punk band.
Demanding us to "sleep our weary logic" and present ourselves in front of Dada to celebrate "Creation - Destruction-Nothing-Freedom-Life", Dances of vice promise a night of music, art, spectacle we are sure never to forget.
