Broadway Bound & Gagged is set to give Hedwig the proper cult film treatment, enhancing the screening with a live stage cast and audience participation. BB&G's "normal showing" of Rocky Horror follows, with the attendant preshow activities, virgin initiation, and a Lingerie & Fetish Contest.
The disorderly conduct commences at 8:30 p.m. inside Spectrum Mall, 19th Avenue and Bethany Home. Tickets are $5 for Hedwig and $6 for Rocky Horror. Adult accompaniment is recommended for viewers younger than 13. See www.azrocky.com for more information. -Jill Koch
Fit to a tee at Freedom
No matter how packed your closet is, you can never have too many cool tee shirts or pairs of jeans -- that's the truth behind Club Freedom's Kind Fridays fashion show, presented by Soldier Leisure and Swell. "The theme could be called Lost Cowboys, Found Hussies,'" says Andy Brown, designer behind Soldier Leisure, a local line of tees and tanks for guys and gals. Brown plans to show some new shirt designs along with a few older classics, all paired with Diesel denim from Scottsdale boutique Swell. Hats and limited-edition shirts will be on sale for 20 bucks apiece.
Angie Thompson, buyer for Swell, says Brown's shirts are popular because of their unique graphics and great fabrics. "If you're a tee shirt and jeans kind of person, Soldier Leisure stuff is just perfect." Visit groovetribe.org for details. - Michele Laudig
