Merry Christmas, Mary Boom! is the live‐studio‐audience taping of Manhattan 
Neighborhood Network’s nomadic showcase for experimental music, performance and 
video art, E.S.P. TV.For this ultra festive Christmas Special, sometimes‐host 
Mary Boom! (Dirty Looks NYC curator Bradford Nordeen) has hit her rolodex to 
bring you some Downtown New York holiday realness, with a variety‐style evening 
of seasonal favorites performed by Justin Vivian Bond (Kiki and Herb, cabaret 
performer, author, artist and perfumer extraordinaire), Dynasty Handbag (Jibz 
Cameron), Geo Wyeth, Kate Bush Dance Troupe (artists Samara Davis, Erica 
Magrey, Sophia Peer, Sophia Cleary, Sonia Stagg), Nicholas Gorham and Dane 
Terry (The Spectrum), Nicholas Buffon (artist), Jennifer Blowdryer (Good Advice 
for Young Trendy People of All Ages, White Trash Debutante) with special 
surprise video Christmas cards from some very illustrious guests.

Taking a note from past Christmas Specials like “RuPaul’s Christmas Ball,” 
“Pee‐ Wee’s Christmas Special,” “The Divine David Presents...,” and “The Kate 
Bush Christmas Special,” this winter wonderland of festive delights will be 
serving a heaping portion of holiday tinsel and spray tanner for everyone on 
your list. Featuring original costumes by Hayley Blatte and sets by artist 
Joseph Jagos, the event will also be the timely premiere of Mary Boom!s debut 
(and sure to be Billboard smash) single, “White Christmas! (May Your Days Be 
Mary and White)” performed by Miss Boom! and Scott Richard Tankersley.

Downtown Art Star, Uptown fashion maven, on-trend and on time, Mary Boom! has 
been running the New York art world since opening her gallery in the once- chic 
neighborhood of Soho in the 1980s. Favoring to stay quite Avant-Garde, Boom!s 
move to the Lower East Side in the late 1990s precipitated a flood of fledgling 
galleries hoping to ape her style and real estate realness. Mary Boom! is given 
form by Bradford Nordeen, an independent curator and writer who founded Dirty 
Looks, a monthly platform for queer experimental film and video in January 2011 
and has written for publications like Art in America, Lambda Literary and Butt, 
among many others.

E.S.P. TV is a nomadic showcase of primarily NYC‐based experimental music, 
video art and performance, formed in January of 2011 and produced for Manhattan 
Neighborhood Network public television. Tapings of E.S.P. TV are in front of an 
audience with live green‐screening, signal manipulation and analog video 
mixing. The entire night is recorded to VHS and edited into half hour episodes 
for airing on cable TV in New York City. After airing, the episodes are posted 
online at www.esptvnyc.com for later viewing.

Schoolhouse, La Sala, 285 Kent, Vaudeville Park, Spectacle Theater, and
