The Drowned Ball
A grandiose remembrance of 100 anniversary of RMS Titanic's first and last voyage

Gemini and Scorpio, producers of themed colorful costume parties with live entertainment, are proud to present our first over-the-top event of 2012, The Drowned Ball. The event commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic with two floors of thematic live entertainment, and is also a fundraiser for their brand new events loft in Gowanus currently in construction. Here are the details from our friend Larisa Fuchs of G&S:

The greatest ship ever built sets sail once more. In the grand ballroom, an orchestra plays to slow-swaying aristocracy, all sparkling diamonds and rustling silk, while in steerage below, the lower classes stomp to fiddles and accordions. But mere hours later, disaster strikes, and with no escape possible, mayhem ensues.

Upstairs: chamber music by Trio Mio Myo and waltzes from around the world by Golden Angel Waltz Orchestra. Downstairs: Strung Out String Band whirls you into an old-time vortex as you're surrounded by immersive video projections. Michaeline Sexton is adorned in Asphyxia's Ghost couture apparatus by Kaytee Papusza. DJs to follow on both floors, with a wild remix of early Americana and modern beats: Joro Boro, $mall ¢hange, DirtyFinger, and Shakey.

In the tradition of turn-of-century Grand Ball art posters, artist duo Teetering Bulb are creating a one-of-a-kind painting to commemorate the event. Skink Ink Fine Art Printing will run a limited unnumbered edition of 50 12x18 prints on archival cotton rag paper, only available to event guests as bundled with 1st class tickets ($50) or at the event, if any left ($60).

Ticket levels*: 1st & 2nd classes board 9pm, and enjoy an hour of complimentary champagne, and a waltz dance class at 9:30: $85 with custom art print; $35 without. Steerage boards 10pm: $25. If any tickets are available at door, they're $10 more; only $15 after 12am. This event will sell out.

Dress code: Turn-of-century-ball meets Mermaid Parade meets zombies. Dress upper class or steerage, before the iceberg or after -- or even as the iceberg itself. Sea creatures most welcome, especially luminescent ones. Ocean explorers, bring your cameras.

Zanger Hall, 347 West 34th St, 9pm-3am, 21+
Tickets available at Gemini & Scorpio -  $25-85 presale / $10 more at door, if left / $15 at door after 12am
