THE MOTHERBOARDS NYC are a trusted alternative source of information on NYC clubs, performers, night culture and history. Our members include active and former participants in alternative NYC nightlife from the 1970s to all tomorrow's parties. "The Mboards" were founded in 2001 by Nightlife Empress CHI CHI VALENTI as a replacement for her experimental nightclub MOTHER (1996-2000). This is our 4.0 iteration as of late 2015 - stay tuned!

OUR MODS RECOMMEND

SUNDAY DECEMBER 3
THE JACKIE FACTORY and THE MOTHERBOARDS NYC host
THE HOLIDAY HANG 2017 @ CLUB CUMMING

Holiday Hang 2017

The tradition of a HOLIDAY HANG, an online community's designated space for venting, shaking out the holiday demons or occasionally even spreading cheer, was celebrated on our virtual community MOTHERBOARDSNYC.COM for many of its early years. That tradition has since merged with the frequent JACKIE FACTORY holiday shows and parties, which began in 1992 at our first JACKIE CHRISTMAS SHOW at LA MAMA. This year we bring the noise to our favorite new East Village haunt CLUB CUMMING, where Factory co-founder DJ JOHNNY DYNELL reigns at a new Sunday Tea Dance, ST(U)D.

Admission is free and the delights will include Factory starlet HEATHER LITTEER, aka JESSICA RABBIT DOMINATION, performing at 7. To grease the wheels even further, CLUB CUMMING has offered 2-for-1 drinks for the official party hours 6-8 PM. We'd advise dancing shoes as Mr. Dynell will be spinning. Of course holiday costuming with Yule, Christmas, Hanukah or Jackie couture in mind are always appreciated, but not mandatory.

6-8 PM
CLUB CUMMING
505 EAST 6TH STREET NYC
NO COVER - 2 FOR 1 DRINKS

NYC Nightclub History

Thought you Nightclub History fanatics would enjoy seeing this - one of the climactic events for the great new Tim Lawrence book Life and Death on the New York Dancefloor 1980-1983. It happened last night in a packed theater at the Museum of Modern Art and is now up on YouTube. Our own Johnny Dynell joined Glenn O'Brien, Fab Five Freddy, Ann Magnuson, Michael Holman and Patti Astor for this deep discussion moderated by Tim L.
