Elvis' Birthday Fight Club co-hosts Kittie Glitter and Elvis get a little cake on their face.
Dec. 31: First Night Alexandria
Before you shout "happy New Year," you can check out First Night Alexandria, an annual family-friendly event that brings a plethora of performances to dozens of venues throughout the city. There will be music, puppetry, storytelling and art activities, plus a battle of the bands. Finally, you can cap off the evening with fireworks on the river, held at the Alexandria Waterfront.
Jan. 3: Elvis' Birthday Fight Club
Okay, so an event called Elvis' Birthday Fight Club obviously isn't the most high-brow entertainment, but it's unlikely to be boring either. The performing arts event features burlesque performances and seven rounds of below-the-belt comedy as pop culture characters duel it out while "Elvis," played by Jared Davis, provides off-color commentary. There will be two shows this Friday night at 8 and 10 at the Gala Hispanic Theatre in Northwest.
