Hot damn — the 4th Annual Boylesque Festival returns this weekend, in full frontal force. Tonight’s teaser party at the Knitting Factory is hosted by the World Famous *BOB* and comprises more than a dozen acts, including local ‘throbs Johnny Panic and Mr. Gorgeous, and more distant performers like SF’s Bohemian Brethren and Toronto’s James and the Giant Pasty. Saturday’s Main Event goes even farther abroad (or, perhaps, a-dude), with hunks from Tokyo, Paris, Australia, and more. Hosted by drag legend Sweetie, with more than twenty performers, it’s a veritable hornicopia. Teaser party at 8, Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, $15–$20; main event tomorrow at 7:30, B.B. King’s, 237 West 42nd Street.

May 8-10, 8 p.m., 2015
