Something Wicked This Way Dances

On Wednesday April 1st, The Sherman Theater's Living Room in Stroudsburg, PA hosted the first of a series of monthly events to be known as “The Wicked Party.” A Hypnotic array of dance tune filled the room as it's moodfully dimmed lighting enhanced the sedatable desire to move one's body to the beats spun on a turntable expertly manipulated by the event's conceiver who is known to the wonderlandian denizens of the event as “Addambombb” who donned a Mad Hatter persona to emphasize the flavor of Lewis Carroll's work as it was sewn into the fabric of each song. The music and its effects were enhanced by the presence of Brandy Herzog and a woman known as Kimberly Ask Questions who shared a table filled with dream enhancing items from Puff's Magic Shoppe.

Although the event was sparsely attended, the enjoyably relaxed sensations it inspired increased the mesmerizing realities that dwelled within the subconscious wonderlands of each soul who were fortunate enough to be present. The density of these mental manifestations, which were invisible to the ordinary eye, populated the room filling it near capacity. This population explosion of realities would have become an overwhelming phenomenon if not for the flow of the music and the auric properties it embodied that guided them upon their mind bending journeys. It was fun and I look forward to going again.

As mentioned earlier, The Wicked Party is a monthly event held at The Sherman Theater's Living Room in Stroudsburg, PA the first Wednesday of every month. It is designed to be an amalgamation of alternative music, art, and culture serving “as a place where intelligent monkey-mushrooms can shake some booty and converse with other intelligent monkey-mushrooms about the benefits of having opposable thumbs, and the higher minded purposes to which they can be put.” The next Wicked Party is scheduled to take place on Wednesday May 6th beginning at 9pm.
