We can’t believe it… but it’s here. LABOR DAY WEEKEND. The official end of summer. And while this is always a bittersweet time for us here at blACKbook (yes, we want summer to last forever, too!) it’s also a great chance to get in a final crazy fun weekend on Nantucket with so many amazing things happening… from those Skivvies to these SALES to champagne brunches to Cisco Bands… here is what you need to note for this long weekend in the HOT LIST!



THE SKINNY ON THE SKIVVIES

the skivvies img

The Tickets $60. The Seats are flying. The Tables are ALMOST sold out … and here are the six reasons why you want to make sure you’re at THE SKIVVIES! First… they’re in their undies. Second… they’re hilarious and oh so talented and were Nominated as the “Show of the Year” for the 2015 MAC Award and named “The Most Playful Performers” in People Magazine‘s ‘The Most Talked About Bodies of 2014’ issue and Sports Illustrated’s “Favorite New Band.” Third… this “musically thrilling,” undie-rock, comedy-pop duo performs to sold-out audiences in New York and beyond. Fourth… we have Nantucket talent taking the stage with the Skivvies … And rumor has it, R Kelly may be rapped by a certain bike tour and coffee shop owner. Fifth… prepare yourselves for some broadway to britney, b!tch! Sixth… this is a fab way to cap off your summer season with these nationally reknowned ACT on ACK!
