Eclectic and Totally Unusual Christmas Celebration Coming to the Black Cat

Sat., Dec. 21 (9pm): Some Souls Church welcomes, as its announcement reads, “all sinners . . . to deck the halls” at its Church Night Holiday Spectacular at the Black Cat 1811 14th St., NW). Further, as they tell us, this will not be “your ordinary midnight mass”; instead, “Santa [will] explain twerking [and participants will] take an active role in the birth of the miracle baby, learn the story of the true first Christmas . . .  and enjoy sing-a-long hymns!

“The service will feature some of the hottest local talent with special music by Jonny Grave, immaculate burlesque by Pria Puss, and children’s comedy by Sara Armour. At the end of the service, the pews will be kicked to the side so folks can dance the night away to the tunes of popular rock group, The North Country. Amidst holiday wreaths and fuscia tinsel,” we have learned, “Revered Dr. Stevedore Maybelline Bidet Esq. [will] deliver the good news with a fervor he usually reserves for His cats, while youth minister, Kathy Piechota, [will] keep the congregation up to speed with important church news. The altered boy, Randy St. Oates Jr. and organist, Ethel Willy [will] bring the service to climax with their searing hot talent.”  Tickets are on sale at www.blackcatdc.com.

“Church Night” is a regular happening on the second Wednesday night of every month at Columbia Heights’ Wonderland Ballroom; for information, visit www.churchnight.org/about.
