Your First Super Bowl Party Invite: The Village People at the Cotton Bowl. Wait. What?
We are 59 days from kickoff of Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, and The Great Prostitution Invasion of '11 only feels like a long way off. But, no -- time to party plan. And yesterday, this invite arrived to a three-night-stravaganza at Fair Park starting February 3 called, simply, XLV Party. Better still, it'll feature music ... in the Cotton Bowl. (Well, in a giant tent on the Cotton Bowl field, but, still.) Finally.
The fellow behind this wingding promises an "all-star cast of performers and celebrities." By which he means the Village People (?) and t.A.T.u. (?!?), who headline the time machine known as Opening Night. Second night's a bit more now, with Austin's Ghostland Observatory and Passion Pit. Third night, a Beastie Boys cover band and Sublime With Rome. It'll be just like the Texxas Jam. But different. For one: a hell of a lot more expensive.
