She's coming to town, yall! With her crew of LA freaks to titillate and mystify. Including a recreation of her hit 1920's-inspred club night Bricktops, which was a smash in LA. If you aren't familiar with her from her demented shrimping rendition of Prince's CHERRIES IN THE SNOW, you may have caught her on Armistead Maupin's TALES OF THE CITY. Check out her site at

Or all these upcoming NYC dates with Ron Athey and Franko B, the most glittering, unmissable one may be Bricktops, named after Vaginals' rough brickish face and the type of "top men" she seeks to plunge her nightly.

April 28 May 5, 2006

From April 28 through May 5 2006, Ron Athey, Franko B, and Vaginal Davis
come to New York for a series of premiere performances, lectures and events
focusing on the unique way in which the work of all three artists challenges
the separation between art and life.

In modern societies, the power of private experience is often filtered
through the norms of social convention and the repression of difference. Ron
Athey, Franko B, and Vaginal Davis challenge these constraints, sharing a
commitment to artistic practices which transcend the boundaries of career,
or marketplace and move into the space of life, orwho they are. All
three artists consider themselves marginalized for reasons ranging from
race, to class, to sexuality, and have subsequently used their involvement
in subcultural movements to develop and propel their work. As an integral
part of their performance work, Ron Athey, Franko B, and Vaginal Davis all
subject themselves to physical, cultural, and psychological challenges as a
means to transform the conditions of the present, thus their work is able to
function simultaneously as exorcism and an opportunity for healing.

Ron Athey will premiere "Incorruptible Flesh: Dissociative Sparkle", a
durational performance.
Artists Space, 38 Greene Street, ($10)

showstopper extravaganza of old-timey glamour as Bricktops Takes
Manhattan with salons, shacks and speakeasy installations built by Future
Art Stars from the NYU Department of Art and Art Professions in
collaboration with Obie and Bessie award winning set designer Michael
Casselli. Produced by Earl Dax Presents, with performances by Vaginal Davis as Madame Bricktop, accompanied by John Blue Jazz Sextette , Jennifer Miller, Julie Atlas Muz, The Wau Wau Sisters, Anderson Cooper channeling Bobby Short and many Surprise Guests.

Ron Athey's work weaves together the baroque visuals and ecstatic
experiences of the fundamentalist Christian rituals of his youth with those
found in the contemporary, then underground, cultures he found solace in as
an adult. Athey lives through real physical extremes on stage as a means to
acknowledge, own, and move beyond them, finding resolve in life's harsh
truths and beauty in the honesty and ownership of pain.

Franko B is best known for his stark, blood-loss performances and has also
developed a large bodies of work in sculpture, painting, and photography. He
is the subject of four artist monographs and has been presented by numerous
venues throughout Europe, including the Tate Modern, London and the Palais
des Beaux-Artes, Brussels.

Vaginal Davis' work encompasses drag, performance art, music, writing,
experimental filmmaking, and painting. In 2002 Davis began also embodying the persona of Ada 'Bricktop"Smith, self-described performer and salon keeper who was a confidant of Cole Porter, mentor to Josephine Baker and Duke Ellington, and pioneered important night life spaces in Paris, Mexico City and Rome. Davis
hosted her hugely successful Club Bricktops Los Angeles at the Parlor Bar
from 2002-2005 when the Parlor closed.

Hey....you forgot to post the Vaginal Site. I am only familiar with Vag and Ron and Co. from Bruce La Bruce's movie "Hustler White". Oh What I wouldn't have done to be a part of that movie....especially the "Amputee Scene"..........or the "Gangbang Scene" where Vag say's..."Oh Show Me That Onion Ass Keebler Boy....Oh My Eyes Are Watering..."

LOL! I was half expecting the "Goddess Bunny" (Remember Her in all her tap dancing glory?????) to show up in one of the scenes...

One correction, Bun. Vag does a version of the Madam X song "Cherries in the Snow." Prince was nowhere in the vicinity.

Vag's website is vaginaldavis.com.
