Wednesday - Thursday at 8 PM
Tickets: $15
Swamp Princess and her Space Cowboy skim slowly into love, whilst dragging mounds of swamp scum up their equally deranged mountains. Expressing their tale through magical rock ballads, and up-tempo rainbow-love songs, this playfully grim story serves as a reminder that the journey to find beauty often brings you right back where you left it.

September 6 at 7:30 PM
THE WAY WE WERE curated by Jill Pangallo
Featuring Mike Albo, Jason Black, Nath Ann Carrera, Cathy Cervenka, Machine Dazzle, John Early, David Ilku, Patrick Johnson, Heather Litteer, Amber Martin, Jill Pangallo, Molly Pope, Kyle Supley and Brina Thurston
Tickets: $20

Inspired by Jill Pangallo's stack of VHS tapes filled with cringe-inducing teenage antics, The Way We Were examines the relationship between the performer to their younger, digitized self and seeks to find currents of continuity between past and present artistic practices. A bevvy of talented, downtown, alt- cabaret performers respond to a past video work of at least 15-years-old with a newly created live performance. Angsty, funny, sincere, sad, happy-and sometimes a mind-boggling combination of all of the above emotions-these early videos carry seeds of ideas and conventions employed in these artists' now-honed works.

September 8 at 8 PM
JUNKIE DOCTORS, a film directed by Rob Roth, written by Michael Cavadias
With Will Janowitz (Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Taking Woodstock), Michael Cavadias (Wonderboys, The Mystery of Claywoman and upcoming on HBOs Girls), Erin Markey (Green Eyes, Our Hit Parade), Cole Escola (LOGOs Jeffery & Cole Casserole), Angela DiCarlo (The Mad World of Miss Hathoway) and Mauro Von Waldenberg.

Melody is an adult or at least she thinks she is. She has a house in the burbs, a successful lawyer husband Craig with a cute assistant Brad, even a disapproving mother in law, Hope, to contend with. But between midday yoga, interior decorating, and dinner parties Melody feels something just isn't right. When the unthinkable happens Melody is thrust into a world of black dresses and funeral plans but can Hope really teach her what it means to BE A GOOD LITTLE WIDOW? A surprising dark comedy that explores love, loss, and everything that comes after.

All performances are at The Wild Project (195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B). Tickets can be purchased from OvationTix on 212.352.3101 or online at The Box Office opens one hour prior to curtain.
