Now in its third year, the New Romantic Ball is one of the best excuses in town to get glammed up. Tonight’s party, hosted by Chi Chi Valenti, features live performances by the 22-piece ensemble This Ambitious Orchestra, downtown hip boy Michael T and the Vanities, live sets by Hypernova and Alison Clancy, and burlesque by Delysia Lachatte and Scooter Pie. Dress code is strictly “Blitz Kids Realness, Victorian Dandy, Retro-Futurists, Peacock Punk, and all Siouxsie looks,” so be creative. Prizes go to the best costume.
