“The Gibson [2009 14th St, NW] celebrates the unconventional this year at their New Year’s Eve extravaganza: DADA. The DADA art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century rejected moral, social, political and aesthetic values and guests can expect all of that at this party. They asked us to dispel our notions of ordinary and embrace the ridiculous and The Gibson asks that its NYE guests do the same!
For $130 ticket, enjoy open bar all night (9pm-2am), small bites, a midnight champagne toast and performances by famous drag queen Salvadora Dali and burlesque superstar Reverend Valentine. Sound interesting? Come dressed to impress in your finest DADA “Ready Made” (everyday object selected and designated as art) style. Advanced tickets can be purchased on eventbrite.”
