ABOUT THIS SHOW
‘‘When Caroline asked me to be a sperm donor, I was speechless. But then I did it. And it changed everything. Jerking off in a cup is a spiritual path. Who knew.’’
Called a “wonderful performer” by The New Yorker, acclaimed writer & performer Mike Albo returns to Dixon Place, bringing his recently published Amazon Kindle Single Spermhood: Diary of a Donor to the stage. Albo gives a naked, heartfelt & hilarious account of the year he spent donating sperm for his friends, a lesbian couple.
Directed by David Schweizer, Albo explores creepy donation clinics, the painful shadow of AIDS and what being a ‘dad’ really means—all while attempting to get aroused by cheesy straight porn.

10pm at House of Yes, $15
The night is sure to scandalize, shock, and ensure the (r)Evolution! The Party by OSTBAHNHOF creates a wildly radical, yet innately safe space for people of all stripes to explore self-expression, celebrate art, embrace sexuality and most importantly feel normal in our collective weirdness. Society’s prescribed norms can weigh on us as heavy chains, even metastasizing social ills, but really they are just artificial constructs. We believe that through the kineticism of radical performance, rave culture, electronic music and all forms of art, we can free ourselves from the antiquated and institutionalized formulas that bind us. 21+
