The Dirty Show is back. Now in its 19th iteration, Jerry Vile's international erotic art show once again features burlesque performances (headliners include Roxi DLite, Chris Harder, and Ray Gunn), the Cinerotic Film Festival, and the return of "Daddyhole," a pop-up leather daddy bar (see our feature in this issue). Of course, there will also be plenty of titillating paintings, photos, sculptures, and other odes to erotica, in just about any medium you can imagine. The show will once again be held for two weekends, at the Russell Industrial Center.
Dirty Show 2018 will take over the Russell Industrial Center from 7 p.m.-2 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, Saturday, Feb. 10, Friday, Feb. 16, and Saturday, Feb. 17; 1600 Clay St., Detroit; dirtydetroit.com; 21+; Tickets are $30. An 18+ "matinee viewing" is also scheduled for 1 p.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 11; Tickets are $20.
