When life gets rough–unbearable in its injustice–sometimes the only and best way to escape is to 1) dance and 2) ignore and/or make light of just how awful it all is. This is where House of Maybe is here to help you in processing today’s “mistrial” verdict in the Bill Cosby case.
In order to help in the mourning process, House of Maybe is asking everyone to bring any season of The Cosby Show on DVD to the venue tonight. Oh come on now, don’t be cheap, it’s not that expensive to find a few rando seasons at one of the many thrift stores in this town to show your anti-support.
Bonus points if you dress in your best Lisa Bonet as Denise Huxtable ensemble (and hairstyle, if you’re not white) and bring your own torch. The bonfire will begin at 10 p.m. and continue through the night with plenty of dancing around it to the tune of all your favorite 80s tracks. (House of) Maybe by the end of the night, a part of you will feel as though you’ve expunged this now extremely skeevy aspect of the decade. Burn, baby, burn–oh wait, that’s the 70s (but it’s sort of applicable considering that’s when Cosby started hitting his raping stride with Spanish Fly).
