Two weeks ago, local nerds dressed up for Awesome Con. This weekend at DC Arts Center, they’ll be taking the costumes off.
Naked Girls Reading’s D.C. chapter will perform its monthly nude reading tonight at 10 p.m. The theme: All things nerd.
Performers Gigi Holliday, Cherie Sweetbottom, Alice Darling and special guest Lucy Flawless will dress, then undress, as mutants, superheroes, and probably at least one character from Doctor Who. Along the way, they’ll read excerpts of nerdy literature in the nude.
Attendees are highly encouraged to show up dressed in their favorite nerd-themed costume and compete in the Nerdette costume contest.
Tickets will be sold at the door for $25.
