WHEN: Friday, November 4

The scene: After seven years spent as a bastion of New York's burlesque community and performance scene, why not throw yourself a birthday bash? Boasting a tight-knit group of performers brought together by Doc Wasabassco, many of whom have been coming out to play under the Wasabassco banner since day one, the gala had the feel of a reunion: Hosts shared their favorite memories of performers, merchandise tables bore pasties handmade with love, and familial cheek kisses came fast and furious. By the evening's third set, even first-timers in the audience were inspired by the camaraderie that's unavoidable at a Wasabassco bash. The curtain call for Friday's show came in the wee hours of Saturday morning, and closed with Doc announcing that there'd be "a 21-hour intermission" before the gang came back for a second evening of fun and nudity. Next parties: The Wasabassco Hellfire Club is at Red Room Thu 17; Doc Wasabassco's Burlesque is at City Winery Fri 18; Wasabassco Burlesque is at Union Hall Sat 19.
