So you’re single. Rather than spending Valentine’s Day Eve staying in & watching a Lifetime movie of the week, why not go out on what is the biggest night of the year in Austin and line yourself up a date for Valentine’s Day?
Join The Austin Poetry Brothel & Infinite Monkey Theorem for an evening of sensual poetics, dance, music, and more. Featuring local artists, the Austin Poetry Brothel is an immersive literary cabaret that celebrates sexuality and art. Our Poetry Whores will take the stage, weave in and out of conversations with you, and let you find them for a private reading – or a few. Along with our sultry poets our featured reader is Gabino Iglesias. Iglesias is a writer, professor, editor, and book reviewer. He is the author of Zero Saints and Coyote Songs, which won the 2019 Wonderland Book Award for Best Novel and was nominated for both the Bram Stoker Award and the Locus Award. Our house band Datura, fronted by Austin-based singer-songwriter & soul-shaker Jessica Pyrdsa, is a piano-driven jazz & soul ensemble. We are also partnering with Brown Burlesque and Typewriter Tarot to bring you both burlesque dance and star-aligned bliss.

Back for a limited run! We shall bring you The Taming of the Shrew in all of its splendor and glory as only we know how — a little bit drunk. You couldn’t get enough of us the first round so we’ll do it all over again. Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Shit-Faced Shakespeare®, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last seven years, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K. and the U.S. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals, London’s West End, and in four cities in the states, where cast members drunkenly sing Zayn and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to Spider House Ballroom this winter for the latest installment because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before! Act fast — this is a limited run! Remember to enjoy Shakespeare responsibly. For more information and tickets to other venues please visit :: www.shitfacedshakespeare.com
