City attitudes getting on your nerves? Feel like you might go postal any minute? Maybe it’s time for a little Southern comfort (and we don’t mean the kind that you knock back with soda—even though that might help!). Tonight, the DanceNow/NYC Festival welcomes the edgy DancemOpolitan series’ latest installment, Southern Comfort, a hysterical showcase featuring downtown’s hottest choreographers/dancers goin’ all hillbilly. Order dirty martinis and enjoy that famed Southern hospitality as boisterous hostesses Monica Barnes and Deborah Lohse introduce works inspired by country-music icons and notables like Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, the Useless Bastards, Tom Waits, and others. The Dang-It Boys also show off their musical twang.
