The word “booty” has plenty of definitions — my fave is “plunder” but maybeyou prefer the nastier meaning. Whatever shakes yer booty, curator and “avant artist” (aren't they all) Heidi “bluegirl” Calvert loves the word somuch she all-capped it for BOOTY!, her arty party on a sexy pirate theme. “Expect a wide variety of art, human art, sexy performances and music, and yes, of course, pirates!” she promises. DJs Shok and Rev. Dr. Davidian make the noise, and there will be wanton shenanigans by Feminine Oddities, Kimberlee Rose and Jezebelle X, plus actual music by Agness Twin. You pretty much have come in costume — or experience the wrath of boozed up hipster pirates.
