John Waters has called Billy Hough’s cult cabaret act A Scream Along With Billy “the bravest thing I’ve seen in 20 years.” Which, coming from the Pope of Trash, is obviously saying a lot. Tonight, see what Waters is talking about when Hough, whose CDs you can find for sale at your nearest Marc Jacobs boutique of all places, presents his holiday show A Scream Along With Billy Christmas Special: Suck My Dickens or Scrooge U, a loud and fast punk-rock retelling of A Christmas Carol. Joining him will be actress Lili Taylor, his partner in crime Sue Goldberg, and a performance from Hough’s band, the GarageDogs.
