Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club

catch of the day fish (2)So, Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club both is and isn’t what it sounds like. If what you’re looking for is a whole night of Elvis-on-Elvis action, you’re likely to be disappointed (but please let us know if you do ever stumble upon such a thing). But if you’re in the mood for some WWF-style spectacle fisticuffs between celebrity matches like “Godzilla vs. Bridezilla”, “Putin vs. a Unicorn” or our personal favorite, “Diane Rehm vs. Stephen Hawking,” this is certainly the event for you. Granted, the aforementioned matches come from last year, so you’re unlikely to see them again. But then, you get the idea.

This is the fift year of this mad cap theatrical/pugilist production.The evening will consist of six ridiculous (but inspiring) bouts, along with plenty of off‐color commentary from co‐hosts “Elvis” and Kittie Glitter. And since we do want to keep the “Elvis” in “Elvis’ Birthday” as much as possible, there will also be Elvis‐themed burlesque performances and contests throughout the night. The one big decision you’ll have to make, however, is whether to wear your boxing gloves and singlet or your blue suede shoes. Or put ’em all together for perhaps your most memorable outfit of the year (and we’ve only just begun it). Sure, it’s kitschy as all get out, but what better way to start off the year than with a hunka‐hunka low‐brow fun?

Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club takes place Saturday, January 17th at 8pm at the Creative Alliance. For tickets or more information, visit www.creativealliance.org.
