Joey Arias Plays Provincetown

Legendary Joey Arias is appearing for one night only at the Crown & Anchor on Thursday July 24th at 10:30P in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Arias has been a fixture of New York City’s vibrant downtown performance scene for over 30 years. I first met Joey clubbing in NYC in the late 1970’s. Arias lived & worked with legendary musician Klaus Nomi until Nomi’s death from HIV/AIDS in 1983. Arias has long since stepped out of Nomi’s shadow to gain fame in his own right as a performance artist, cabaret singer & the ultimate cool drag artist. From outrageous performances at seminal New York nightclubs Jackie 60 & Squeezebox to the now-legendary nights at Bar d’O where he held court with Raven-O & our good friend Sherry Vine, Arias has distinguished himself with scandalous wit, sleek style & an extraordinary voice. Arias has performed worldwide at venues including Carnegie Hall, The Freedom Theatre in London and on a transatlantic world tour into the cabaret clubs of Paris, Tokyo, Moscow, Germany, Finland, Estonia, Canada & England. On film, he has appeared in Mondo New York, Big Top Pee Wee, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, Wigstock - The Movie, Flawless & To Wong Foo, Joey Arias is a bona fide NYC icon. A portion of this special concert proceeds benefits the Afterglow Festival.
