SURELY SOME REVELATION IS AT HAND: CLICK + DRAG 3.1/THE SECOND COMING
The pioneering "Cyber/Fetish/Gender-Hacking" party CLICK + DRAG, which ushered out the 20th Century in style and returned with a bang last year, announces its second annual Future-Spectacle for October 17. Two of Click's founding producers - director and visual artist ROB ROTH and nightlife impresario CHI CHI VALENTI of THE JACKIE FACTORY will stage this year's epic CLICK + DRAG 3.1/ THE SECOND COMING at sympatico venue SANTOS PARTY HOUSE. CLICK 3.1/ THE SECOND COMING is a two floor, evening-length epic, preserving the night's strict dress code and pansexual mix of fetishists, artists, gender-hackers and "Glam Nerds."
CLICK 3.1 was inspired by the W.B. YEATS poem THE SECOND COMING, and its themes of new gods for (often terrifying) new Ages, "Spiritus Mundi" or universal subconscious, and a post-Christian world. CLICK 3.1 celebrates gender-bending new prophets and prophetesses, and the neo-tribalism that borrows elements from a myriad of religions to create new believers and practices. CLICK + DRAG 3.1 will feature multimedia works directed by Roth and installations and performances by dozens of collaborators.
This year's highlights will include trans icon and vocalist OUR LADY J, who presents an electric take on her GOSPEL FOR THE GODLESS with piano, choir and chadri design by GARO SPARO, gender-illuminati cabaret troupe THE PIXIE HARLOTS in THE SWITCHING HOUR, and Method Go-Go icons FALON, AMBER RAY and SEQUINETTE. The DJ roster includes original Click (and SCISSOR SISTERS) DJ SAMMY JO, DJ JOHNNY DYNELL (who also creates the night's signature mixes for the clicknyc.com website and show) Darkwave DJs JOSH CHEON (SF) and JOHANNA CONSTANTINE, and electro DJ ANGELO.
A STRICT CYBER/FETISH/TRIBAL DRESS CODE WILL BE COMPLETELY ENFORCED: WEAR GODDESS OR TRANS-GODDESS, GLAMOUR MARTYR, SPHINX-WEAR, RUBBER NUN, PRIESTESS, SEQUINNED SAINT, CROWN OF THORNS, PAGAN CHIC, SHIVA REALNESS or CYBER, FETISH, TRIBAL, GENDER-HACKING, FAERIE, GOTHIC OR BRILLIANT BLACK. ABSOLUTELY NO STREET CLOTHES OR MUNDANES - NO EXCEPTIONS.
CLICK + DRAG began as the Saturday-night weekly at Valenti's experimental MOTHER nightclub in 1996 and ran for four years in over two hundred themed editions. The new hybrid was evolved by Roth, Valenti, fashion designer KITTY BOOTS and journalist ABBY EHMANN. The producers explored the interface between nightclubs and computers as CLICK + DRAG built a fanatic following. When MOTHER closed in 2000, they launched CLICK + DRAG 2.0, a monthly edition at Chinatown's FUN, which thrived until the events of 9/11/01. CLICK + DRAG 3.0 introduced its new annual format at THE HALLUCINOGENIC TOREADOR, the 2008 reboot at SANTOS, for over five hundred enthusiastic attendees in extraordinary costume. Do NOT miss the once-a-year chance to drink in this completely unique New York club spectacle.
