It's not every day that geek culture intersects with gay culture, so a two-night cabaret dedicated to Star Wars this weekend is definitely a newsworthy event. Not that geeks are anti-homosexual, but they're just pretty much anti-sexual altogether. And also not that cabarets are a predominantly gay thing, but you'd probably never catch Vince Vaughn at one. Oh, and the geeks are going to want blood for using Star Trek font on the flyer. It's a cardinal sin to mistake the two.
For a slightly less weird, but still rather off-kilter evening of entertainment, you can watch burlesque dancing to the tune of songs from the "formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo," Flight of the Conchords, on Sept. 17 at Annie's Social Club.
And no. John Waters has nothing to do with any of these nights, oddly enough, if only in spirit. --Oscar Pascual
