Michael's lover Gareth sent me a note that Michael died last night between 8-9PM, at Saint Vincent's of complications due to HIV/AIDS which he had been fighting bravely for years. Gareth shut off his med tubes at 8PM because Michael loved curtain time. I'm sure many of you remember the pierced and tattooed very handsome couple, Michael and Gareth who frequented Jackie 60, Click & Drag and recently Cheez Whiz. Michael was an actor/songwriter. He was one of the girls in "Cage" on Broadway...

Her black mass tribute to the Aids departed at Saint John's Cathedral was one of the most extraordinary live performances I've ever witnessed even surpassing Led Zepplin at NY Pavilion Flushing Meadows World's Fair.

The Saint not have a heyday? How old are you partybobby? The Saint was located where the old Fillmore East was (Second Avenue between 6th & 7th Streets,) and is way up there in the pantheon of legendary gay nightclubs. Any other club that might have assumed the name since the 1980s is simply a thieving and unoriginal imposter. Except, of course, The Saint-At-Large which carries on its tradition and invented the concept of "Circuit Party." The Saint had a group of owners, most notably...

The St. Paddy's edition was quite choice with Ms. Martini doing the Saint right and Velocity's opening wringing a lot of exclamations from the crowd. A lot of the performances at Badass really blur the stodgy boundaries between burlesque, porn, BDSM and art, which to me is really refreshing to see.

All the pomp and pageantry surrounding the death of John Paul II has obscured the fact that the Vatican had been searching for a saint to designate as "the Patron Saint Of the Internet."
