We're not going to talk about Judy, we're just going to keep her out of it. And we're not going to speculate about the relative damn-fineness of David Lynch revisiting his iconic, deeply strange and dark-as-fuck television masterpiece after 25 years. However, we can predict that this Body//Talk Twin Peaks welcoming party will be a fun and quirky night out. Going all out in the conceptualist stakes, the event features flourishes like Twin Peaks-themed cocktails, coffee and cherry pie, and a costume contest. On the musical front, things are looking solid with sets from retro-synthwaver Moondragon (who should be right at home among the skewed nostalgia), Factory pop inheritors RV and the "Twin Peaks Ensemble," who are tasked with re-creating Angelo Badalamenti's flawless suicide-noir soundtrack. A plastic-wrapped-Laura-Palmer is a sure costume win, but we'd love to see an Agent Phillip Jeffries wreaking havoc on smartphone cameras.
with Moondragon, RV, DJ Damn Fine Cup of Coffee, the Twin Peaks Ensemble | 9 p.m. Saturday, May 27 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org
