Dubbed "a demigod of the demimonde" by Time Out New York, legendary performance artist and chanteuse Joey Arias appears in his first residency at Joe's Pub over a series of three Sundays this winter. Harking back to the days of Bar d'O (the notorious West Village boîte where Arias reigned for nearly a decade), each week sees the Arias With A Twist star exploring a range of musical selections from Billie Holiday and popular standards to 70's rock anthems and Klaus Nomi. The residency is a warm up to Arias' west coast tour, anchored by a headlining concert at the historic Castro Theater in San Francisco on Valentine's Day.
