For the past few years D20 Burlesque, with the blessing of John Darnielle, hosted a fundraiser show with performances based only off the works of the band The Mountain Goats. Unfortunately 2020 was what it was and we had to cancel the NYC show, but we are going to kick off 2021 with a virtual rendition of this show.
This show will include a mix of burlesque, dance, drag, and circus arts performances all based on the music of The Mountain Goats. A portion of profits going towards City of Asylum (cityofasylum.org), the charity chosen by Darnielle this year, and we are excited to create an evening of entertainment for you all to help them with their work.
