Get Pegged Cabaret feat. Nath Ann Carrera & Xcel Dance Crew
Co-curated and hosted by John Jarboe
Friday, June 16
Like a poison cookie—tempting and treacherous, pleasing and perilous—Get Pegged Cabaret lures you inside a reimagined La Peg, then jumps you with unrestrained intimacy and performance. Each night features uncensored and stimulating entertainment from the sexy, satirical, daring, delightful, queer, and most dangerous performers from Philadelphia, New York, and beyond.
Nath Ann Carrera sings, “I Don’t Want To Throw Rice, I Want To Throw Rocks: The Early Southern Gothicism Of Dolly Parton,” a collection of early extreme sensationalistic story songs penned by Dolly Parton from 1967-1971! Class-Conscious Incest! Teen Delinquent Anti-Authoritarian Murder! Mental Institution Imprisonment! Anti-Marriage Retaliation! Stillborn Suicide! Children Bursting Into Flames While Their Parents Tell Dirty Jokes! And BEYOND!
“Described as a “heavenly” (New York Times), “gender-defiant” (Time Out New York), “glitter saint” (Village Voice), Nath Ann Carrera has had solo shows at La MaMa (“Death To The Patriarchal Rape Heads”), Joe’s Pub, Wild Project, and the Afterglow Festival (“I Don’t Want To Throw Rice, I Want To Throw Rocks: The Early Southern Gothicism Of Dolly Parton”), sings as WITCH CAMP with Amber Martin, performs with Justin Vivian Bond, opened for Martha Wainwright at City Winery, and has sung at P.S. 122, The Kitchen, Abrons Arts Center, Le Poisson Rouge, SFMOMA, and MoMA PS1.”
“Wonderful, striking… essayistic songs about female revenge and politics” Hilton Als- The Paris Review
