Well this party was fun.
REALLY fun.
Susanne and Kenny's crowd came out in force and they were done!
I was a little worried because Sunday is a tough night but it was good.
It's very much like their Happy Valley parties.
If you liked that madness you will like this new incarnation.
It's official...
The bitches are back!

This past Sunday was the third week of Vandam and every week gets better and better.

It's Sunday so that means it's an early party.
People start lining up outside at 10PM
(open bar) by 11PM it's full and by midnight both floors are packed!

Upstairs has the traditional Susanne & Kenny over the top madness.
I play VERY high energy music to drive it over the top. (Electro mixed with Disco and House).

And the kids are DONE!!!
Every week more and more people come lit up like Christmas trees.
It's very "Happy Valley" if you were ever there.

It's also a VERY mixed crowd.
Of course there are the gays but there are also lots of cute girls.
(those born that way and those not)
And where there are cute girls...
(those born that way and those not)
there will eventually be straight boys sniffing them out.
I think I saw two on Sunday.

There is always a show. (around 12:30 or 1AM)
Narcissister, Julie Atlas Muz, Dirty Martini etc.

Upstairs empties out by 3AM and then it ALL happens downstairs.
Downstairs is packed all night but "late nite" is the best!
The music is hot and deep.
DJ Will drove me out of my mind last Sunday.
He was on fire.
I dragged my sad old beat up carcass (I was in a cab accident on the way to work and have a big black eye) out of there at 4AM but I still haven't stopped dancing.

The reason I am going on and on about this night because I know the Motherboards crowd and this party is for you!

It's not some last century bottle bar and it doesn't cost $1,000.00 to sit at a "Box" with a bunch of frat boy investment bankers if you know what I mean.
It's a real New York party night!
If you kids want to know what New York was like...
GET DRESSED UP!
Come to this party.
Get fucked up.
Lose your self in the music.
Go home with someone that would give your Sunday School teacher a heart attack.
Miss work the next day.
Miss work the next week!
And do it all over again.
Oh...
I also have to give some props.

Last Sunday I was watching Giorgio Armani (or "Mr. Armani" as everyone calls him).
It was about 2AM and he was having a ball.
This man has got to be about 70 but he was out there like a twenty year old.

I loved watching him.
He was intently checking out all the fashion of course.
REALLY enjoying all the looks that the kids put together.
I also loved watching him move to the music.
The hardest most rocking songs would get him off I noticed.
The Klass mix of "Where's Your Head At" by Jean Elan seemed to be his favorite.

This was interesting to me because the man is obviously very smart and successful etc. and the songs that he most responded to were the best songs.
Interesting.
It's like if something is good it transcends all age barriers.
I'm sure he's not hanging out with seventeen year-olds every night but he was there for hours got an earfull of their music and fashion.
And I can honestly say that by the songs that he most responded to that he totally gets it.

Interesting.
I know!
I've been meaning to post some pics but have been so busy.
This party is so much fun.
People are REALLY dressing up for it which is always great.

And it a VERY mixed crowd.
Guys, gays, girls... some born that way, some not.
It's New York again!


Sammy Jo came down with Del Marquis and did a little late nite DJ set with me last week (just to show off!!!)
Nita was downstairs.
I also saw Gant, Black Eddie, Wrestle Boy, Lady Fag...
wait a minute, it was Mr. Black!

Kenny Kenny said to me, "You and Sammy Jo together are the best DJ in New York!"
Take that compliment and run with it! The music is spine jarring.
I saw Sweetie, some J-60 afficianado's and quite a few girls I haven't seen out in a long time. Maki gave her seal of approval also and she's a rough critic. Martini was in high spirits. There were loads of people taking photos but they were all very polite about it. One wanted to share my whiskey and told me, "I love you." Guess where it went from there.
She dropped a lot of what I would call mainstream remixes, Prince, etc. But the crowd was eating it up.
Better visual than Cat was Narcisister in practically nothing but a full on lion head mask, Plushy meets Barney meets kooky.
It wasn't that crowded but I got to talk to Martini but missed Amber Ray. There were a lot of other familiar faces.
People were asking about you.

I hope you get some rock lobster or loveshack time for your efforts.
