This atrociously cold weather has those of us with clean-shaven faces wishing we’d jumped on the scruff wagon a long time ago. (An all-natural face-warmer? Yes, please!) But if you haven’t had time to grow out your whiskers just yet, you can at least cozy up to some boys who have. Enter our upick of the week, “The Weird Beard Revue.”
Produced by, who else, Josh Schonewolf, the kickoff of the now-monthly event will be hosted by Boylesque star Mistor Fahreneheit and buzzing with some of the Philly’s scruff-sexiest talents. Slated to perform is Philly dancer/choreographer Gunnar Montana (who teased on Facebook that he’ll be “ …pretty damn naked again.”); burlesquer Brettzo; Songbird’s Robert Anthony; Liberty City Kings Drag and Burlesque’s Tasker Morris; and world-champion ukulele player Eric Jaffe. Fri., Jan., 24, 8 p.m. (show), $10, L’Etage, 624 S. Sixth St.
