Burlesque on the Rocks: A Tribute to CBGB

Join us for one night only!!!! FRIDAY, October 20th!

Bohemian Cult Revival is bringing the Bowery to the Bottoms at The Union Library!

Is there a music club more iconic than CBGB? It was the epicenter of underground rock and the launchpad of New York Punk. Pick any musician you like, there's a good chance they either played at CBGB, or they were heavily influenced by a band that did. Without CBGB, we may not know names like The Ramones, Patti Smith, The Misfits, Joan Jett, or Blondie.

Now Bohemian Cult Revival is paying tribute to the legendary CBGB in Burlesque on the Rocks fashion as our tour of Kansas City continues. Join us at the Union Library (an awesome West Bottoms loft) for loud music, burlesque, cabaret, and a punk-rock history lesson, Bohemian Cult Revival-style.

Bohemian Cult Revival:

Annie Cherry
Chris Arnone
Damian Blake
Danger Alex
Danny Dismay
Frankie Dismay
Ivanna Rockafella
Katie Gilchrist
Sara D'Joue

Special guests to be announced!

This event is 18 and over.

There will be merchandise available for purchase and - of course - a CBGB-themed prize pack, so come ready to buy some tickets for a chance to win it!

All You Need is a Love-In: A Tribute to The Beatles

No band had a bigger effect on music and the world in such a short time. From their bowl-cut boy-band days to their psychadelic phase to their rooftop final performance, the music and art of The Beatles are iconic. Bohemian Cult Revival is set to recreate one of the iconic performance styles of The Beatles: The Love-In.

Join us at Drexel Hall on Saturday, August 19 as we perform in the round and celebrate John, Paul, George, and Ringo. We will groove, rock, sing, and love our way through the night and the deep catalog of The Beatles music.

 

**If you'd like to bring a pillow and blanket for a front row, immersive experience, limited Love-In style seating is available for purchase. This seating is limited and ticket must specify Love-In seating**

Bohemian Cult Revival Presents Burlesque on the Rocks: A Tribute To Grunge

The late 80s to early 90's were a tumultuous, yet formative time for the members of Bohemian Cult Revival. From the rain-shrouded Pacific Northwest came the "Seattle Sound." Dense bass lines, down-tuned and feedback-laden electric guitars, and expressive voices emerged on the radio. Flannel shirts and combat boots became the fashion to define a generation. Bands like Mudhoney, Alice in Chains, The Melvins, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and so much more became the soundtrack of our young lives. It was Grunge.

On May 20, 2017, BCR is breaking out their holed up stockings and ratty band shirts to celebrate this musical revolution that turned the music world on its ear!

Chris Arnone: (R)Evolution of the Beard - A High Spirits Cabaret

In our wanderings, the one thing we Bohemians can always count on is change. It is constant, sometimes abrupt and always necessary. Evolution, on the other hand is far more intriguing, takes a little more time and results in a magical transformation. We are all evolving and Chris Arnone, though immortal, is no different. Learning, loving and growing, he plays multiple parts in our traveling band of misfits. He has composed a myriad of paths in his journey with us, crescendoing into his moment of evolution. Come join the members of Bohemian Cult Revival as we pay tribute to our brother: the technical genius, the storyteller, the performer that is Chris Arnone.

Burlesque on the Rocks: Saturday Night Beaver

Ladies and Gents BCR is at it again with Burlesque On The Rocks! 

There will be:

Polyester.
Bellbottoms.
Mirrored Balls.
The Bee Gees.

And Arty Vulgaris Himself!

Love it or hate it, you can't deny the cultural influence of disco or the mesmerizing hips of a young John Travolta. Bohemian Cult Revival had their synthetic fibers and platform shoes at the ready, geared up to celebrate disco, when it happened. There was copious Jameson, PBR, and hypnosis involving a waterbed. When we all came to, THE Arty Vulgaris was standing over us, freshly signed contract in hand.

So now Arty is steering our disco ship, Saturday Night Beaver. There will be dancing, bright lights, and too much spray tan for any one man. Join us as we celebrate disco and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, and as we try to keep Arty Vulgaris from burning down the Buffalo Room.

Bohemian Cult Revival is:

Annie Cherry
Chris Arnone
Damian Blake
DangerAlex
Danny Dismay

With only one spectacular night of variety, stellar professional performers and live musical entertainment, this show is sure to warm up your winter bones.

Hunter S. Thompson was a man of many endowments: author, journalist, activist, icon and more. His devotion to truth and counter-culture have greatly inspired the members of Bohemian Cult Revival. So much so, they have created this night of homage and welcome you to join in their debauchery, mischief and merriment.

As always, Bohemian Cult Revival revels in bringing you something new and different each and every month. This show will feature live musical entertainment provided by Sean McDonnell, of Stonecutters' Union and The Amanda Fish Band, along with a few of his most talented comrades.

Burlesque on the Rocks: The Pulp Fiction Soundtrack

Movie soundtracks are often strange collections of random songs. Once in a while, though, the soundtrack to a film leaves an indelible mark on you. Songs like Jungle Boogie, Son of a Preacher Man, and of course, Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon have made the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction a thing of legend. 

The Bohemian Cult Revival is taking their Burlesque on the Rocks series on a new adventure, paying tribute to the Pulp Fiction soundtrack from top to bottom. Every song, every nuance, every iconic piece of dialog included on the album will be presented in this show as Bohemian Cult Revival's love letter to both the soundtrack and the film.

Chris "The Beard" Arnone

What is Fringe?

The Kansas City Fringe Festival is an annual arts festival in late July. All over the city, you can find theater, burlesque, comedy, music, film, art, and fashion on display as part of the festival. http://kcfringe.org/

What about the third Saturday of the month?

Rather than our normal one-night, third-Saturday performance, we're performing six nights during the Kansas City Fringe Festival.

What's this about a button?

In order to attend Kansas City Fringe Festival shows, you must buy a $5 button, which are sold at all Fringe events. Once you have your button, every show in the festival is $10.

Can I buy VIP?

Unlike our normal shows, Fringe will be selling all tickets for these shows for $10, so there will be no VIP offerings.

Why is this shorter than your usual shows?

Nearly all Fringe shows are 60 minutes. We are no exception.
