Northside's Chicken Lays an Egg, a gem in Cincinnati's growing collection of excellent vintage shops, hosts a Valentine fashion show featuring their retro-fab clothing, shoes and accessories Saturday at Northside Tavern.
NST's back room will transform into a runway where you'll watch some local hottie patotties strut their stuff with hair designs by Northside Chop Shop. Kenneth Wright will DJ the show and ongoing dance party.
Spot someone with the best moves you've ever seen? Send them a message via the valentine post office, and pose for pictures in a fabulous Flashbox photo booth. It all starts at 9 p.m., with the fashion show at 10 p.m.
Afterward, party with Bad Veins, who perform at 11 p.m. The duo's album The Mess We've Made drops April 24.
Get a peek at Chicken's fashion in Bad Veins' new video for "Dancing on TV." Some of the ensembles in the Soul Train-esque shots were provided by the boutique!—-
The show coincides with Northside Second Saturdays, a monthly event that will no doubt be on-par with Final Fridays in OTR soon. Each second Saturday, the neighborhood's bars, art galleries, restaurants and businesses offer extended hours, drink specials, sales and extra fun times. Participating businesses include Fabricate, The Painted Fish, Shake It Records, Melt, Comet, Happen's Toy Lab and many more. Go here for a full description of events and participating businesses.
