Ira Glass Hosting A Giant Dance Party in Philly This Weekend

This American Life‘s Ira Glass is bringing a conceptual art performance/dance party to Philly, and it goes away forever come Monday. It’s called “One Radio Host, Two Dancers,” and here’s how it’s going to go down: Ira will stand on stage and tell poignant stories, while dancers from Monica Bill Barnes & Company, well, dance.

Glass wouldn’t reveal much about the show in a conversation with Daily News gossip scribe Molly Eichel, but he did give us this: A. He can’t dance, B. He claims to have beaten Dan Savage in a DJ battle, after the syndicated sex columnist (open up Philly Weekly) played too many show tunes. The shows are taking place Saturday at 8 and Sunday at 7, at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are 20 bucks.
