Lower East Side Coney Island

For those of you who have always wanted to go see the Coney Island Circus Side Show or the Mermaid Parade but are too lazy to trek out to Brooklyn, tonight is your night.

The amusment park’s motley crew of underbelly performance artists is coming to the Lower East Side from 7 to 11 p.m. for Coney Island USA’s annual Spring Gala at the Angel Orensanz Foundation. Lady Luck and the Suicide Kings are performing, and the Brooklyn Bombshells will kick off the night with swing dance lessons.

Regular tickets are $200 and the VIP package is $250, with proceeds going to Coney Island USA, a non-profit arts program that produces shows like Burlesque at the Beach, the Coney Island Tattoo and Motorcycle Festival, Creepshow at the Freakshow, and the Coney Island Sideshow School.
