If you missed this year's mammoth Infringement Festival, which took over the streets of Allentown back in early August, fear not. For a cool $5, you can catch a healthy sample of some of the festival's more curious and wonderfully strange acts in "ALTFringement," a variety show and fest fundraiser set for Saturday night in the Alt Theatre (255 Great Arrow Ave., third floor).

The vibe of this Infringement event (one of several held throughout the year) is decidedly dancey, with performances from the always-moving Aaron Water, the Miraculous Rhythms of Sankofa with bellydance troupe Euphraxia, the Mone Dance Project and music from the Noise Project, Poverty Hymns and DJ Soma. The evening also will feature performances from members of the newly formed Buffalo Burlesque Collective, a consortium of Buffalo's various and innovative nouveau-burlesque troupes.

The party gets started at 8, with more information at
