DANIEL NARDICIO brings BETTE BATHHOUSE AND BEYOND back to New Orleans for one night only during SOUTHERN DECADENCE / Labor Day weekend this year to the Allways Lounge. Powerhouse singer and comedienne AMBER MARTIN recreates one of BETTE MIDLER’s iconic shows at NYC’s infamous gay bathhouse the CONTINENTAL BATHS from 1971. (Martin is also known for spinning John Cameron Mitchell’s MATTACHINE at ALLWAYS LOUNGE when it comes to NOLA.)
The audience at the Allways Lounge will be required to don only towels (provided by the DWORLD NOLA staff) to recreate the vibe of the famed bathhouse. JOHNNY DYNELL will be playing “Bathhouse Disco” from the era. He has been DJing at gay clubs since the 1980s and is no stranger to this music. He has been a part-time resident of NOLA for several years and is eager to return for this special night. Expect the unexpected, too, at “B,B and B” as surprise musical guests will also drop by.
BYOT (bring your own towel or pay $2.00 to rent one from the Dworld Nola crew)
