The week ahead: Nightlife


BARTSCHLAND IN BOSTON Night life meets fashion in New York party diva Susanne Bartsch’s “Art House Nightlife.” The talent roster for the multi-stage party/pop-up concert includes Amanda Lepore, the Zand Collective, Joey Arias, Jonte Moaning, and JbDubs. In case you’re wondering what to wear, here’s some advice from Blackbook Magazine: “At her parties, you are best off wearing a vintage corset, face paint, a headpiece, a cat suit, anything by Thierry Mugler, Alexander McQueen, or Vivienne Westwood, or barely anything at all.” April 20, 10 p.m. $20-$75. Revere Hotel, 200 Stuart St., Boston. 617-482-1800, www.revere
