GO TRANNY, IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!

Walk on the wild side with Holly Woodlawn

Whether you were born too late or were just too boring to have ever been invited to one of Warhol's infamous Factory parties, you can finally buy your way in. Holly Woodlawn, Warhol's transsexual artist cohort who became immortalized in Lou Reed's "Take a Walk on the Wild Side," celebrates her birthday tonight with an extravaganza featuring an audience Q&A, surprise appearances by downtown performers, and Woodlawn's own live rendition of Reed's 1972 paean to the glam life. These days, the ailing Woodlawn spends her semi-retirement in sunny California, but she's known for having "hitchhiked her way across the U.S.A., plucked her eyebrows on the way," so New Yorkers can expect the full treatment.
