Dirty Ball

415 Bingham Street

April 11
8 p.m.

Ready to dance this mess around in an empty warehouse (that used to be a steel mill)? Forget good clean fun and indulge in a night of devilish debauchery at the inimitable Dirty Ball.

Celebrating one decadent decade—the latest rendition of The Dirty Ball will feature edgy Attack Theatre performances, throwback beats by TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party, space-age art installations, 21st-century fashion showdowns and old-school libations. What’s even better is that all of this dirty dancing supports Attack Theatre’s engaging site-specific performances, day-to-day operations and educational outreach programs.

Sure to take the 10th installment up a notch will be installations and “inter-activities” crafted by HackPittsburgh, No Name Players, Smart Solutions, Ziggy Sawdust and Pittsburgh Bike Share’s Healthy Ride.

Kick off your night of time-warping revelry at The Dirty Ball’s signature Dirty Donor gathering. The VIP pre-party features local food and drink from James Street Gastropub, Tender, Verde, Poros, Seviche, and Shiloh and Harris Grills and exclusive performances by Attack Theatre—all situated within the sultry Velvet Lounge designed by Richard Parsakian of Eons Fashion Antique fame.

After that, it’s Spring’s most-anticipated dance party with 1,000 of your most eccentric friends. Fuel up with grub from the PGH Taco and Steer and Wheel food trucks, along with a wide array of libations—from Sailor Jerry’s Rum, Capital and PVI Global wines and Wigle Whiskey, to Yuengling, Clique Vodka and Mahon Gin.

So start crafting those dirty duds now so that you won’t disappoint during the Ball’s Filthy Gorgeous Fashion Show. And if you’re thinking of going, we suggest you grab tickets today, because prices go up after April 1.

Purchase tickets.
