Happy buckin’ birthday, Dirty Bourbon!
A visit to the Dirty Bourbon Dance Hall and Saloon is well worth the drive to the Northeast Heights. What other bar in town boasts a mechanical bull? It's more than a bar. The Bourbon hosts live bands, a 1300-square foot dance floor and dance lessons. There's even a disco ball shaped like a saddle.

Klaus Nomi would have been 69 today
Klaus Nomi's work isn't an acquired taste. You hear it and you either love it or you don't. I do. Nomi was a German countertenor with an astonishingly wide vocal range and an out-of-this-world persona. In one of my favorite music docs, The Nomi Song, he is described as the love child of Tristan Tzara and Maria Callas. That's pretty spot-on. Nomi died of AIDS-related complications in 1983. Check out Klaus Nomi A/V below.

Scroll on for some A/V inspiration for your worship.
