Lady Gaga and all of her awesome outfits come to Verizon Center tonight

lady gagaWill Lady Gaga's fashion choices or songs be more memorable Tuesday at Verizon Center?

Hours before Lady Gaga descends upon Washington for her concert at Verizon Center, we find ourselves wondering what her gaggle of Little Monsters will be wearing to the blessed event.

Are you sitting at home sewing together a miniskirt made of Muppets? How about a headdress made of lace, glass shards and human hair? We've got our Gaga video, and we’re curious to see any and all of your fan photos, and we’ll feature the best of the best right here in this blog.

Tweet your photos to @washingtonpost (like @straussanator did right here) or send them to our summer concert gallery post-haste. Feel free to send in pictures from past concerts or fan events, too.

And with all this talk about outfits begs a question: Will the show look better than it sounds, or vice versa? Gaga's concert last September at Constitution Hall was certainly more about spectacle than songcraft and one can only imagine things will be even more over the top at the much larger Verizon Center. We already know she's a lady of many hats and is a fashion plate without peer when it comes to current pop stars.

Follow Chris Richards on Twitter for updates from the show and check back later tonight for his first take on the concert, with a full review up first thing Wednesday morning.

There is nothing awesome about spectacle. Spectacle is merely a distraction from bad art.

Lay Gaga is a pop performer and quite entertaining in both music and show. Pop has moved greatly towards an accompanying show over the years. I think Gaga's show is way more entertaining than the shows of years past that had dancers everywhere (think Jacksons, Britney). Her outfits are fantastic!

No talent, lame, sad, Madonna lite.

Really googleer? When was the last time Madonna put together a broadway/cabaret/vaudeville/burlesque show with avant-garde film and sculpture on stage? And performed for 2+ hours with no voice filters/changers/autotune/lip syncing?

Never, that's when! Madonna is great, there's no mistake about that. But Gaga is doing things that Madonna would never even thought of doing much less dared to try.

Gaga is the spawn of Madonna. And neither of them is art. It a product of big record companies. It's not theater. It's not music. It's spectacle.

@anarcho-liberal-tarian I guess you're not much for Broadway plays
