This Thursday, Naked Girls Reading Sci-Fi Strike Back

This Thursday, January 27th in NYC, burlesque star Nasty Canasta and Naked Girls Reading NYC present “Naked Girls Reading Sci-Fi Strikes Back”! From their release:

We have seen the future. The future is naked. The future is now! Naked Girls Reading NYC once again explores strange new worlds of literature as New York’s “Best Story Hour” (The Village Voice Best of NY 2010) presents SCI-FI STRIKES BACK. Nasty Canasta leads an all-star cast of exhibitionists on an entirely new voyage beyond the stars: B.B. Heart, Lady Scoutington and Velocity Chyaldd will read selections from sci-fi masterpieces by Philip K. Dick, Cormac McCarthy, Douglas Adams, Gene Roddenberry and more. Bring a clone or loved one and raise a glass of Tranya (a special terrestrial version of the classic Star Trek cocktail will be available at the bar) while we celebrate the literature of a galaxy far, far away!
