Any Scissors Sisters show is Homo Central, but how MANY Scissors Sisters shows actually have MOTHERF*CKING CHER at them (below)? Thank god Liza wasn’t also at the Bowery Ballroom tonight, otherwise there may have been a gay sensory overload!
The show was nothing short of stellar–I’d never seen the Scissor Sisters live before, and they certainly did not disappoint. Fun, sassy, and totally campy, the gays and fag hags (like myself) danced their little boot-ays off like it was the last night of the Roxy.
Since it was their first performance in about 9 months, they played both old and new songs, and the diva-rific Ana Matronic told us she called Madonna a “‘tard…a leotard” in her dreams, heralded Earth Day, and demanded the revival of dropping acid.
After the show ended the lights did not come up, dance music kept playing and the main floor of the Bowery Ballroom morphed into a mini Kurfew with boys twirling around to the electronic beats. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them are STILL dancing right now…
SET LIST: Take Your Mama/ I Can’t Decide/ Tits on the Radio/ She’s My Man/ Laura/ Paul McCartney/ Everybody Wants the Same Thing/ Kiss You Off/ Mary/ The Other Side/ I Don’t Feel Like Dancing/ Comfortably Numb/ Music Is the Victim/ Land of a Thousand Words. ENCORE: Filthy Gorgeous
More over at the Music Slut.
UPDATE: Report from Bao on Sunday’s show, instead of Cher, Karl Lagerfeld and KYLIE FREAKING MINOGUE were at the show!!!!
Who the hell is that woman dressed like a hootchie mama on crack?
Oh crap! It’s Cher, of course!
