The man who started his career as Walter Buster Keys was never too discerning about his clothing or even his house. (The Liberace "mansion" isn't much bigger than an average suburban split-level, and the nimble-fingered pianist collapsed more than once from the strain of hauling around his 400-pound costumes.) But he loved his music. That's about the only fine thing Comdexees found at the S3 party last night.
Still, there's something perversely satisfying about lying in a bathtub that's worth more than your car, sitting down for a nosh in Liberace's closet, his very closet, and peering into this god of gaudery's Greek temple master bathroom to find a very plain throne.
Kitsch factor: 10+
Overall rating: Worth the trip, but not tonight's big winner.
