Bass Cabaret & 1015 Folsom present
BASS CABARET: Bonnie & Clyde
BALANCE // SUB-DOCTA
KNOWA-LUSION // RICHARD XAVIER
Friday January 30th / 10pm - 3am / 21+
Bonnie & Clyde captured the hearts of a nation with their anti-authoritarian antics and a passionate love affair that was ultimately riddled with bullets.
What captivates us so deeply about their tragic and triumphant legend?
Perhaps because we, too, seek the joy of defying convention and of rising up jubilantly to embrace our own destinies — no matter the cost. That, friends, is true passion.
This January 30th, Bass Cabaret invites you to conjure up the rollicking 1930’s in a sexy, sultry and absolutely prohibited celebration of love, passion and the outlaw ethos. Join us in full dress attire for what is sure to be one of the best nights 1015 has ever seen.
3rd Annual Bonnie & Clyde Theme Party
Variety Show & Dance Party Experience
Imagine yourself walking into a Sexy 1930s Wild Western Saloon where everyone is dancing to underground bass music and money is being thrown everywhere. There are cops and robbers, but you don’t mind being frisked and quickly make friends with the jailbirds. You soon find yourself in the Swingin' 1920s Speakeasy where Gatsby lookalikes are only the beginning of the decadence you see. Everything is dripping in gold, and live performers grace the stage in front of you with feathers, silks, and lots of glam. You make your way to the bar in the back and ask the bartender in a low voice for a Sidecar, but put it down quickly when you spot the “laws." Unfortunately they’ve already noticed you, and before you can duck behind the DJ booth they drag you on stage for the costume contest… and all of that before midnight!
It’s all possible at Bonnie & Clyde, the 3rd annual Prohibition-era costume party produced by Bass Cabaret. Perfect as a date night (from first dates to 7th-year sweethearts) or a group outing, this immersive theme party will provide an atmosphere for you to connect with others both on and off the dance floor while experiencing the radiance of the best bass music that makes you want to make love to the speakers as well as your partner in crime.

While a costume is not technically required, we do think it adds to the fun for everyone. Character suggestions include: a flapper or dapper sheik / 20’s or 30’s prohibition era darling / scandalous lingerie-clad hottie / cowgirl or cowboy running from the “laws” / jazz age zoot suit-wearing gangster / jailbird / smoking hot mobster / gold-toned raver / bohemian Burner. Your outfit may be formal, semi-formal, or sophisticated casual. Check out photos from our previous events
