“Wonderful Wizard” at Where House
L. Frank Baum’s 1900 children’s story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is great because it can be used for so many things: Commentary on the monetary policies of Teddy Roosevelt; a Judy Garland movie vehicle; a metaphor for the LGBT coming out experience; and now, an excuse for a byob hump day party. Tomorrow night (Wed June 27) at 9pm, The Where House hosts an evening of live music and frivolity called “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Party.” Skeleton Coast, The Cush, and Year of the Bear will provide ambient space rock sounds to evoke singing munchkins, bickering witches, and those scary flying monkeys. Tix are $10. Because of the byob policy, this one’s 21 and up only.
