The good news is enigmatic soul machine Cee Lo Green’s The Lady Killer, a record the world has avidly awaited since the great “Fuck You” meme of August 2010, is out next week — you can stream the whole thing via NPR right now, in fact. The great news is he’s doing an intimate show at the W New York on Thursday, November 11 to celebrate. The less great news is that getting in will require either a great deal of luck or a great deal of discretionary income.
It’s a mostly private event, you see, with one notable exception:
A special W Symmetry Live Package is available for both local music fans and out-of-towners looking to book the ultimate concert experience. Available in limited quantities, the package, which must be booked through Facebook, is $649 and includes: two tickets to the private performance; a copy of Cee Lo’s newest CD, The Lady Killer; a copy of W’s exclusive CD, Symmetry, curated by Michaelangelo L’Acqua; two cool cocktails; and a Wonderful Room at W New York. To book, please head to our Facebook page starting Friday, November 5, 2010.
They’ll also apparently though be giving away five pairs of tickets via Facebook in days upcoming, so maybe that’s a more reasonable option. Or, book a room and by all means, have the time of your life. No disrespect to Cee Lo, but those cool cocktails had better have, like, naked women in them.
